Hungarian Archer 6 by syccas-stock Hungarian Archer 6 by syccas-stock
This is Thomas, our host during our bi-annual Archery Week, when we're basically camping in his huge backyard, shoot some arrows, get a little drunk in the pool and overall have a great time. Oh, and of course the archery tournament at the end of the week - when everyone realizes that they *should* have been practising all along...

Thomas is wearing Hungarian garb, the bow is a replica of those used during the conquest period (890-955).



ABOUT MY ARCHERS:
For the experts among you: Thomas is an experienced archer. The red, ornamented "quiver" on his right is a bow-sheath, the plain brown on his left an actual quiver. Arrows would be placed "upside down", with the feathers hidden and the arrowheads visible, so the archer can select the which type of point would be best for the shot he needs to make.

We are a group of intuitive archers. Our individual anchor points (point in face where the arrow is drawn to) vary from person to person, they are however consistent - most of us use cheekbone or corner of mouth. Of course you can always argue about details and posture correction, but what's important to me is that if you use this stock in your art you can be sure that this is functional archery.
There are many different styles of archery throughout the world and the Olympic style is NOT the gold standard, it's just one style.

For more information on archery please check my Beginner's Guide to Archery below:

A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend
