Hussar Uniform, England, 1870s. Private Collection.
As previously mentioned, an appreciation for history-things is something that runs in the family. Specifically, an appreciation for the design of historical militaria. This late nineteenth century hussar uniform is a longtime favorite fondly revisited with every return home. Favorite is a clear understatement - best described through the lens of a specific anime; if I were to bond consciousness with a garment to rise to greatness or defeat powers that be through a gratuitous transformation sequence - this would be that garment.
Spoilers; there’s also an incredible cap with a plume that couldn’t be fit in the picture. Plumes, yo.

There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.

Some links that may be useful:

Ah shit, what a lifesaver!  I was just planning to do some hard-surface modeling of armor.

Pretty in Pink! (shhh I really like 80’s movies) So you can be adorable while you disembowel your enemies.

These were a custom order, and that shade of pink was hand-mixed and painted.

There should be an uber-femme Buffy the Vampire Slayer villainess (or villain) wearing these.

yup definitely buying these
