Gin P.H.
Hi There, Welcome to my Page! I'm just an amateur artist with limited drawing skills but a big passion for art, so all feedback is most welcomed! I speak both Indonesian and English so I'm more than happy to teach you a bit of my language if you want :)

I have a big interest in history and women warriors which you can see in my gallery. If you have any suggestion or anything, please feel free to drop me a note or comment!

Visit me on Facebook and help support my page!
Hi All,

Hope you've been doing well! I haven't written an update or see much activity here in DA in the past few months as I have been busy building up my art profile in facebook and Instagram (less on the later). But nevertheless, I'm happy to announce that for my Historically Wrong Sketch Series - Medieval Series project, It's finally nearing its completion.

For those who are not aware, the series deals with the portrayal of Women Warriors in historically inspired armors based on the 800s AD to 1400s AD era of warfare. At the moment, the series has more than 80+ cultures listed and each drawing portrays the historical attires specific to that culture and time :). The series will be turned into an artbook once the drawing is completed, and you can find more info below here  HWS: Medieval Women Warriors Artbook (Update). :)

So far, if following the list, the HWS series has about 48 European culture listed, out of which, 47 have been drawn, leaving out medieval Croatia as the last drawing. Once this is completed, I can move on to the remaining drawings of other eastern cultures to complete the artbook.

The few sample pages can be seen below

Intro Sample 1 by Gambargin Valois-Burgundy Sample Page 2 by Gambargin
Norman Sample page 1 by Gambargin

Also, I realized that after reviewing my sample pages, reading the descriptions can be tedious and boring. So I will try to reduce the reading material and instead, fill the gap with these sketches to help with visualization, alongside the main drawing and historical references. So, apart from 80+ main drawings of HWS women warriors in various period arms and armor, you also get to see 80+ chibi drawings too in the final artbook! Here's a few sample of the "cute/chibified" HWS medieval women warriors which will be implemented in the final artbook to make the reading experience more pleasant

That being said, I'm still constantly reviewing the draft, layout and what to put/omit so that the drawings and the accompanied description can be presented in the most attractive way to readers of all ages and background.

Please wish me luck so that I may blessed with continuous strength and drive to complete it the artbook by somewhere mid-this year!

NB: To those wishes to reach me the fastest for the time being, please contact me on my FB (Gambargin) as it goes directly to my phone. Unfortunately, it's harder to keep track of messages in DA :(
