There is always a work which makes you lose patience. You throw it to the darkest corner, allowing it to lay there under an inch thick layer of dust. This description is more or less about the picture above.
I've found it recently, and after another attempt to finish it, decided to add some crappy digital effects and naive symbolism. If anyone can nonetheless say "I enjoyed watching that" ...well... i think i need to go vist a doctor or sth.
In the pic the Polish Lancer Regiment of the French Imperial Guard, lessay around 1813, Napoleon's campaign in Germany. The Lancers pass their Emperor, who is believed to restore their oppressed homeland. How it ended we all know. Still, the Lanciers polonais de la Garde Imperiale are one of my favourite units of all time.
There's something romantically (and i don't mean the modern trivialised version of this word popularised by cheap soap operas) rousing to see a cavalry charge of the old. Sadly we have to bring it before our eyes by arts.
Pencil plus some textures.
