I'm not going to lie, I don't usually make tutorials based on any types of armor so for me to make a tutorial on "how to draw a helmet" is a rare thing you will see from me. The reason why I made this lesson is because someone asked if I make a tutorial on a knight style helmet. There are many types of knight helmets and each one has their own name. I'm pretty sure this one is actually some form of bascinet. Bascinets where usually worn by knights as they where part of the suits armor. Sometimes these helmets had gold colored pieces on them for added detail and beauty, and other times knights wore just plain armor helmets without the hair plume. Anyways, this should prove to be a fun lesson especially if you like armor related stuff. Enjoy people and make sure to leave your feedback.
