Please Lord guide my sword by Behydezell Please Lord guide my sword by Behydezell
Trial by combat (also wager of battle, trial by battle or judicial duel) was a method of Germanic law to settle accusations in the absence of witnesses or a confession, in which two parties in dispute fought in single combat; the winner of the fight was proclaimed to be right. In essence, it is a judicially-sanctioned duel. It remained in use throughout the European Middle Ages and gradually disappeared in the 16th century.

Inspired by a german 14th century copper plate.

That's amazing. The beautiful detailing in this just astounds me. May I ask what sort of mediums you used to illustrate this? Whatever it may be, it looks very wonderful. You truly have amazing talent. :iconkokorox: Your artwork is very inspirational.

Very, very nice attention to the details. How did you do the background? Did you paint it or use blue paper?
Another amazing piece. :)
