Atlantian Garb Challenge Best Overall Award Scroll by Merwenna Atlantian Garb Challenge Best Overall Award Scroll by Merwenna
I made this for the garb challenge being held at Atlantian Fall Coronation this year (2013). It was sooo much fun to plan out and so aggravatingly time-consuming to complete. It's covered in heroes and villains, of course, which was the theme of the challenge (I went as 14th century Poison Ivy). It's done with gouache on perg, and is based off of the Neville of Hornby Hours (mid 14th century), with the miniature being based off of folio 190 - the Siege of Jerusalem.

It can be seen here:…

The wording for the award scrolls was written by Etienne le Mons, aka

It was a good time. Name that super hero/villain!

Woooo! I do like the garb challenges.

It is almost embarrassing how long it took me looking at this to realize something was... odd...  The style seemed so historically accurate that I assumed it was.  Amazing job at taking non-historical subject matter into a historical looking piece. :)

Aw, thanks!  That's one of my absolute favorite things to try and do - make something non-historical blend in so that you almost don't even notice it :P

Ah this was my very first SCA event!  I saw you there briefly in my excited newbie wanderings. Great job on this scroll, what pretty letterforms!
