This week's character design assignment was to draw a crusader. I had a lot of fun researching reference. When I was in high school, I used to read novels that took place in medieval times (Tristan and Isolde anyone?). Forget about hygiene, I just loved the tragic and the sense of honor, perfect antidote to teenage angst. Not all was drama. I laughed re-watching excerpts from "Les Visiteurs" ("The Visitors"), a comedy where a knight and his servant accidentally time travel to the early 1990s. It's ridiculously hilarious.
