Polish Winged Hussars by akreon Polish Winged Hussars by akreon
Hussars were a type of elite heavy cavalry in Poland between the 16th and 18th centuries that managed to stay undefeated for 125 years.

I think I'm in a mood for more illustrations like this one. So many fascinating cavalry formations worldwide, so little time. Any suggestions?

what a marvelous sense of motion .. I can practically smell the dust kicked up the charging horses, I can hear and feel the thudding hooves on the ground .. so beautifully painted .. so evocative all that this scene represents!

I've been watching you for a while now, but I didn't know you had painted this. You just got up the list a few points for that, I love the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the Winged Hussari specifically.

Looks super awesome! :)

If there were a real equivalent of the Rohirrin of Tolkien, those were the Winged Hussars :)

Niesamowite. Nasza husaria była przez ponad sto lat nie do pokonania, a tobie się udało ująć wszystko co trzeba: godność, waleczność, odwagę i dumę. To niesamowite, że wszystko wygląda na takie łatwe i nieskomplikowane, ale gra kolorów daje niepowtarzalny efekt, rządzi dynamika, i jednocześnie dostojność.
Skrzydła nie-skrzydła. Jedni mówią, że mit drudzy, że prawda. Jedyna uwaga: były przytroczone do siodła, nie do pleców husarza. Ale to tyle, i nic więcej, bo obrazek jest jak najbardziej świetny.
Tchnie całą naszą polskością.
