Has /his/ had a draw thread yet?
I'm curious if there are any drawfags on /his/.
I wish. History is my fetish.
Just fanart for the Broken Crescent mod for M2TW
Been working on this in my spare time, inspired by a cup thread a week or so back. Been unsure of who to put on the right side.
The other two I was considering was The Eternal Anglo (pic related) or Diogenes in a barrel.
In retrospect, though, even if a team were to be made and approved by Spring this logo would be way too complicated to be seen from PES anyway.
Lenin, because this is an abnormally left leaning board
Because it's easy as fuck to hide a lack of experience drawing human anatomy with heavy armor and flowing robes. Also it was based on a very greco-roman kind of seal.
Do you have an idea for a more modern but well-known female figure?

>Their reign was short lived, however, as the Chinese gathered a huge expeditionary army under the veteran general Ma Yuan to suppress the rebellion. The Trưng sisters were defeated in battle in 43 AD. Different accounts regarding the fate of the sisters are recorded in Vietnamese and Chinese sources. The Đại Việt sử lược reports that the sisters were killed by Ma Yuan. According to the Trần Thế Pháp and Đại Việt sử ký toàn thư, the sisters died during the fighting after they were deserted by their fellow rebels. The Book of the Later Han states that they were executed by Ma Yuan, who sent their decapitated heads back to the Han capital. There are also legendary accounts claiming that the sisters fell sick, vanished in the sky, or took their own lives by jumping into a river and drowning.
Yeah about that
>The Book of the Later Han states that they were executed by Ma Yuan, who sent their decapitated heads back to the Han capital.
I wonder how many times and how hard they were raped. Also wonder how they took it, did they cry or take it like champs?
You would have thought a history board would have prefered Æthelflad to Joan considering that they both attempted the same things, but Æthelflad actually succeeded, and died at the age of 50 of battle wounds.
Æthelflæd was a woman.
She's the reason we even have the word "Lady," because the Sacons had no word for Queen, and Lord was masculine.
She's also better than Boudcea because she didn't die like a bitch as soon as she started.
>didn't think there'd be one so soon.
Nah, we just missed one. The next official one is the Winter Cup in February, but we aren't even qualified and won't participating. I do wonder if we'll debut in an unnofficial match before the Spring, though.
Left leaning by 4chan standards doesn't mean much. Even people who defend feminism here will casually throw around "nigger" and "faggot" mid-argument. It's like how Reddit is very liberal compared to 4chan but considered right wing by the mainstream media, or how 4chan considers itself a bastion against political correctness but eight-chan call us SJW fags.
I'm fairly good at doing small little things like this.
Also in the library in between classes so if anyone wants something drawn I can do it.
>History is my fetish.
Alfred the Great was her father.
Æthelstan was her nephew, if you mean him.
Realized you said mail right as I finished, oops
I'm an occasional drawfag but i rarely if ever draw historical things.
I'd love to do it more, though. I'd love to, say, draw a scene of an event that hasn't been depicted in a more accurate way or at all, even. This is something i'm hoping i will do more as i learn.
in that spirit, /his/ art threads could be amazing, does anyone here think there's something you wish there was a depiction of? like, an ancient weapon or uniform or battle, a lost city during it's splendor, ancient tech, rituals, ornaments, and so on and so forth.
I'm a mediocre drawfag but I too hope /his/ gets a steady drawthread going. I'd try and contribute now and then.
I tried to start one not long after the board was created but it got buried in the chaos of the first few days.
Another bump with /his/ related drawings.
Drawthreads thrive on many boards, I'm curious why it doesn't on this one when history is just full of good subject matter.
Because he who took the time to do so gets to keep him...free of charge. Enjoy anon.
If there are any draw friends around, please draw the Generals of the Civil War as kawaii schoolgirls with West Point being some form of military all girls academy. A morally uptight Stonewall Jackson and an energetic, rambunctious Custer. This is the life I chose.
Is allie a boy or a girl name? Serious question, english names are a bit hard to guess sometimes.
Womyn name. Though judging by the picture it could've gone either way really.
Because it's usually pretty retarded when you know something about the time period, ruining the fun. Except in a handful occasions, alt-history gets better the least you know about that time period an place.
Seriously though just because the west was so inspired by the Greeks doesn't make them western. They didn't give a flying fuck about 90% of the regions we consider the western world and were far more involved in/interested in the east.
I'd say calling the Greeks western is a bigger meme, but that's just the way scholars have done it for decades so as far as the historical record goes, they are.
This goes double considering Greece hadn't been considered part of the 'west' for much of its golden age when it was under Ottoman rule. The Ottomans were essentially the orient.
>. They didn't give a flying fuck about 90% of the regions we consider the western world and were far more involved in/interested in the east.
Greeks had colonies in Spain, Italy, and France.
And the only reason they were more interested in the east is because that's were civilization was. Egypt, Persia, Mesopotamia, India, Aksum, Phoenicia, etc.
Meanwhile Celts, Germanics, and Illyrians were all still fairly unorganized and unimportant at the time. Etruscans were fairly organized and advanced, I suppose, but that's it.
>she was wont to complain that Nature had not provided her with larger openings in her nipples
>And the only reason they were more interested in the east is because that's were civilization was. Egypt, Persia, Mesopotamia, India, Aksum, Phoenicia, etc.
That's the point. That's the world they were a part of, not the west. They're as much a part of the west for having colonies there as Europe is a part of Africa for the very same. The west was irrelevant until the Romans.
The Greeks sure as shit wouldn't have considered themselves to have anything in common with any of the countries we consider part of the west in their own time. Just because these countries were later heavily inspired by the Greeks doesn't really change that, besides a broad and convenient categorization.
Obviously though I'm arguing against the generally accepted narrative, which firmly puts the Greeks in the west. I just don't agree with it. The Romans, sure, but the Greeks are pushing it.
Then again people consider Australia part of 'the west' as well so the concept is pretty nebulous anyway.
It is real. I remember when the pic came out, it was from this kid's twitter. He was on /pol/ I believe claiming his ex was a radical feminist and then they looked back through his account and found that
