..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.

Nope, just the good guy's left-handed... still great!

Actually, a lot of my stuff, that turns out well, was by accident. I start and I "let the drawing tell me how to draw it".

Now, getting something done on purpose (i.e. something that goes from inception to execution to completion the way I intended) that's the hard part.

But this, this is great! I love that both of them ended up left-handed!

This is some sweet work! If the hero was bald and black, I'd have assumed this to be an Order of the Stick fanart :P
