March 2003-Okay. The greatest Knight in Arthur's posse. I've never been a big fan of Launcelot. I first read the Arthur stories as a girl, in this Junior Library edition of Mallory's works circa 1950, and man oh MAN! He was either sobbing or running off into the woods stark raving mad. And let's face it - he's always drawn like such a pretty boy, someone who would pick up a lute to woo Gwen, but wouldn't know how to use a sword. But he's supposed to be the greatest warrior in all of Arthur's Britain. So, I tried to give him a rugged, I've seen a lot I shouldn't have, too many battles, and yeah, once I was a pretty boy, but I'm older now, and I've lived a hard life, look to him. So, sorry he's not so pretty. And not so incredibly noble either. But loyal.

WHEW. Okay. Enough ranting. Here he is, pledging his love to Gwen. Pencil on Bristol.

Hmm..he looks grumpy. I never liked Lancelot either.

Besides that, I think it was done wonderfully, you do human detail very well. Keep drawing!

If you get a chance to read the unabriged version of Le Morte de Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory, I think you would like it. It's an awesome book...anyway, it was great for you to portay him as a rugged, battle-hardend knight that he was...*bows* thank you!

*self-pitious mode on* This is just sad. Because if piece of art so good, clean and skilfuly drawn, with a story of itīs own, brain nehind it, gets only *two* comments, how could *I* hope in someone commenting my gallery? *self-pitious mode off*
Heīs great. And he *is* pretty, kind of, in some way. I especially love the folds on his tunic?shirt?clothes? (how do you call it in english?) and his hand. And how clean and clear the lines are, despite it *is* shaded. Itīs truly beautiful.

(and because the ladies above didnīt, *quick third comment dance*)

I really like it because Lance *2* isn't pretty here. Ya, i think OK that Lancelot is not 'beautiful'!
oah, it's great!2

I like the uncolored version more than the colored. But that’s just me. 20
