finally i can submit a new work. i painted this one based on a doodle i made back in.. 2008 i think. i wanted to see how it would look like in my current style. you can see the comparison on my tumblr: [link]
another armor design a paladin with... something that was supposed to be a lance;;; and weird artificial wings. i wanted to draw something heavy looking since not long ago i wasn't able to do any of those;;
i wanted to add some more ornaments, especially on the shield, but i ran out of time. gotta work on something else now. maybe i'll edit this one when i have some free time^^
inspired by some comments under [link] - mainly those from ~Thatamos and ~HypnosOfLethe thanks for the amazing feedback under 'ruby knight'!
nowadays, i'm never fully satisfied with the colouring. but i'm doing my best so hopefully soon the pictures will start to come out like i have them in my head. until then i'll keep practicing hard >__<
hope you'll still enjoy this one '''orz..
