For some strange reason this reminds me of the dark nuts (the black colored ones) that have those freaky helmets.
I love the gold and the electric blue colors and designs that you did! I also love that you did it on the hilt as well. It reminded me a lot about twilight princess and not a lot of people do a lot of detail on the twilight glowing tattoos/markings that they have, so I'm impressed that you took time to do a glow effect on your own personal artwork. It's amazing. It shows that you pay attention to detail. I love it!
The knight for some reason strikes me as someone who'd do a whole lot more than just send birds after you...more like something that's going to make you die of fright...if such a thing can happen...can it? I really don't know.
Anyway wonderful art piece once again. I'm so sorry that I keep sending you such long comments and critiques. Really honestly you can never go wrong. You are very talented, I love every picture that you do and you just amaze me time and time again! Keep up the good work!
That's an amazing concept! And very well created, as well. So... based on the picture, I imagine that with a powerful swipe of his (or her? you never did specify) blade, a vortex of merely (forcibly) hallucinated images fills the air. Could be a very practical and useful tool. Certainly wouldn't want to be this character's enemy, and it's no wonder he's one of the 'elite.'
