A Winch aarbalist/Crossbow during the 9th-10th c.
My favourite exhibit - The medieval entertainment machine operated by waterpower to showcase moving figurines in set intervals during the 11th c. This was made from book refs by al-Muradi.
Counter Balance Trebuchet by Leonardo da Vinci and large counter balance catapult.
I love this! Looks like something out of a classic comic. It's an advance type of gun made after drawings found in a 14th c. manuscript. Apparently firearms came into the Islamic world from 13th c.

Do drop by the site to view other artists take on the Chocolate maestro himself. :) Getting a weekly topic helps me to think more creatively in a tight timeframe and yet have fun with viewing all the other takes on the same subject by the other artists. And interesting subjects they are too! Great job on the admin side. ;)

YouTube just gets better and better! This site's prob been given noticed already but I just wanted to give it another shout out for all those who've missed it :D
One of the few ways that drives me to better my artworks is by viewing animation clips such as these with their strong layouts,designs and character driven ideas. If you want inspiration, get it from the best.
