Military Helmets

Here are some of military helmets, sketched at the West Point Museum of the U.S. Military Academy Museum in New York.

I did a series of helmets once in watercolor, as coaster designs. It was a lot of fun!

So those were all helmets people wore in medieval times? I wonder if anyone looks at helmets like these when designing armor for epic fantasies nowadays.

These are great! I like the tonal variety, and how the design of each creates a sense of character. It's interesting to see the evolution of helmet design over time, how these examples harken back to those of the classical Greeks and earlier.

Love the blog and the Dinotopia books, here's hoping you plan to exhibit your artwork in Australia sometime in the future!

The grey tone paper is perfect for the metal of the helmets.
