Londo from Babylon 5 subjugated by the shadows, one of my favourite themes of the entire series.

Wow.
This is absolutely stunning.
The colors are amazing and I like that you gave him some black wings. Just like an angel of death. He's a great character and I loved the series very much.

NICE! nice artwork! it's unique and has different aspects (wings, chains, colour-scheme) that all work well together and the art looks like the character it's suppose to be (londo). I like this!

Holy shit. I'm so happy about this! I'm not sure about the tear because I think he always kept it inside, but his posture and the concept and the way you colored this, just everything. I love it. It's mind-blowing.

What a magnificent portrait! I know I'm echoing other commenters in loving the symbolism, especially the Shadow vessel as dark wings. I loved Londo's tragic storyline, and this picture really demonstrates that tragedy. I have to go and re-watch the series again. Thank you!

Londo was such a great character (I loved how he and G'Kar interacted with each other) and I love how you drew him, it really does him justice.

I just finished watching that series myself.

I really liked the character arc of Londo. Starting out as just an ordinary comic relief alien and slowly evolving into a tragic hero and one of the most richly nuanced characters in science fiction.

You do this character great justice with this picture.

Nice work.

Ah, Londo. As impossible as it is to choose a favorite character from that show, Londo's definitely up there. He just suffered so much! And changed so much too. This is a great depiction of him and what happened to him.

Londos journey was pretty much what sold Babylon 5 for me, I hardly ever do fan-art but his story really got to me. I'm glad you feel it captured him.

This is an absolutely fantastic pic! It expresses his half-intentional descent into darkness perfectly.
Also, I love how you depicted the lurking Shadows behind him.

The symbolism in this picture is so cool! Black shadow wings, it really makes him look like a fallen angel. The chains on his hands are also add to this picture (those look like the chains g'kar had on, any coincidence there?)
I didn't notice the tear until I saw the close up version; but I'm glad I saw it! It really completes the picture.
All in all this is freakin' amazing! Go B5!!

I think the detail is just fine, the lack of detail draws the eye where it needs to be; the face. You can see the pained resignation in the face. True to character, he will do whatever needs doing, however unpaletable. Great work.

I'm currently reading the first book of the Legions of Fire trilogy, so I'm really feeling the 'spirit' (or lack thereof? =P) of this.
Poor Londo...

I'm just near the end of the first book of the trilogy, and yes, I'm really enjoying it! It actually starts at the end of the series, just as Londo is becoming the emperor and that b*****d Drakh is attatching that thing (the keeper) to his shoulder...
I never thought I'd feel sorry for Londo... :(

=P
Yes, I really hate that Drakh! :XD: You will too if you read it...
