..with my father's sword by Cryptcrawler ..with my father's sword by Cryptcrawler
Full view for details

Ok.
Little nervous about this one.
This is a finish of the original sketch thats in my sketches folder.
I had a good amount of people express interest in this one getting finished, so I simply *had to* because im a sucker for folks wanting me to finish something that im not feeling so hot about - it gets me out of myself and my comfort zone.
Now this may sound pretentious and dumb but im going to ask anyway: have you ever drawn something that feels like its drawing itself and your just kinda there spectating?
This was one of those pieces for me, things just seemed to fall into place, it was weird.

Im nervous that it wont live up to the peoples expectations that really wanted to see it finished - I hope my version does it justice guys; thanks for pushing me.

Completed from start to finish in photoshop7.
I glanced at a few photo's of gothic church windows and french sword hilts as a guide to make sure the details were right - other than that, no references.

I hope you all enjoy it.

I've had that happen, yeah... although given my [lack of] drawing skills, I tend to throttle it midway-- I let it happen all the way through once and was horrified enough at the end result to actually use the paper as a firestarter, when in general I keep all of them. But it happens with writing, too... to much better effect. :) Although sometimes I still read back and wonder how such good prose came out of such awful subject matter.

This is so cool! I love the perspective, and the way you light stuff up is amazing! I love his face and helmet! I love everything I guess....
