Hate to be Mr. Downer, but I'm fairly certain (what with using a bow myself) that the arrow should rest over the thumb...

Single gripe though. Pretty boss picture.

Both variants seem to be common. There are also a ton of weird ways of shooting that have been used by various peoples throughout history, like holding multiple arrows in your draw hand to allow you to shoot faster, or releasing the string just before you get all the way back and thus never reaching the pictured position at all (again, to shoot faster). Modern archery is entirely focused on accuracy, but that's less of a concern if you're shooting at a very big target like a whole formation of soldiers.

Nope, I have been involved in medieval archery for many years, it is drawn correctly :-)

Great pose. Really like the filigree along the bow:)
