Springs of Cresson by wraithdt Springs of Cresson by wraithdt
Here's a piece I started about a year ago but never got the chance to finish it until now.

Its my own depiction of the Battle of Cresson which happened just before Saladin's victory at Hattin in 1187 during his campaign against the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem.

The knight in focus is the Grandmaster of the Templars, Gerard de Ridefort, who was one of only a few that survived the battle.

If you're interested you can read about the battle here :-

Cheers!

Springs of Cresson by ~wraithdt is an astounding painting full of life, emotions, and a wonderful perspective. The details and movement really bring out the action in this scene! ( Suggested by Krissi001 and Featured by cosmosue )

heard that the commander of the army that was in this battle was no Salahadin,but one of his son.

This kinda reminds me of one of the battles that I heard......somewhere. It's not the one said in the description though.

Great work, as always. It's interesting to think what would have happened if Saladin would have been defeated this time a la Montgisard. But of course, the long term would remain the same as the Crusaders were just too few in number.

Never heard of that battle before. I'm more a Hattain or Arsuf fan.
