Oh wow. I’m following @Rob_Marshall for quite some time now but this one beats it all. “Wolf At The Door” is an interpretation of the siege of Stirling Castle in 1304.

There’s also a production video beside the rendered images and a lot of background information on the siege itself. Fiddling with Blender myself I’ve quite some understanding about the process involved so I can’t stress enough how freakin awesome this work is:

The Sword. Form and Thought | blog.HistoFakt.de by JSachersJSachers (blog.histofakt.de)
„The Sword – Form and Thought“ was the name of an exhibition held at the Deutsches Klingenmuseum (German Blade Museum) in Solingen from 26th September 2015 until 28th February 2016, and is also the title of the accompanying catalogue.

The Sword – Form and Thought (ISBN 978-1-78327-427-7) is indeed a must-have for every sword enthusiast. Got my print years ago but I guess the recent prints are of the same fine quality.

Slow is slow and fast is fast. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise by Sean FranklinSean Franklin (swordstem.com)
“Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.” This adage is used to illustrate the fact that speed is gained through efficient movements, rather than just trying to use as much force as possible. And in a lot of ways it is true. Most of the increases in speed we realize are not from an increase in the ra...

Looks like Sean wrote an excellent article on training speed in [that I somehow missed until now].

Gotta love that series on Sword STEM.

Went for a walk with my family today. What was meant as a short walk resulted in an two hours excursion. The forest is an awesome place to be in autumn. While not yet frozen over the winter it’s still rich of life and beautiful colours.

Even the continious rainfall could not ruin this. We had good jackets [that could not quite keep up with my medieaval Pileus (hat)] and boots. Such a long walk was also quite an adventure for the children who somehow managed all of this without [the usual] complaining =)
