Almost finished with my Holy Roman Iron Knight. I thought it would be fun to put him in a Regiment going off to fight Saladin in the 2nd Crusades. Still have to add some filigree to his boots as well as finish up his Rose Window. Photo courtesy of Getty thru the Metro.UK

Almost finished with my Holy Iron Knight. Need to add color to the rose window and add the final last touches.

Very first mask I created. This mask is now 15+ YEARS OLD and still being used.
