The "Young Stallions" game art

This handsome crew appears in one of the Renaissance-styled games I illustrated in the mid - 80s for "Gamelords." The young men are of high birth and maintain a jousting and combat club. They also cause trouble in the streets in gangs feuding among their various clans. Their aggression has caused them to get the nickname "Young Stallions," which they are proud of, at least until a couple of them get killed. The background is meant to suggest the social background of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet."

Original illustration is black ink on illustration board, 8 1/2" x 2 1/2", spring 1984.
