It's in the slow process, you can check out Dawnwell96 on Twitter to keep yourself updated! :) Thank you so much though, this really made my week. I couldn't have been more overjoyed with the breath-taking work masterfully painted by Arhiee and her incredible skill!

I love the mood your image evokes. The color palette and the lighting are masterful!

This has a funerary brooding air to it, yet with the same tranquillity and peaceful feel of sleep.

The contrast of shadow with small streak of light from a specific angle is subtly powerful, the intricate layered design of his Armour with harmonization of sharp edges and smooth curves mirrors both his personality, aptitude and his history of both extremes be it in battle or approach to knight's ethic. Even his expression reflects a sense of finished duty, inner peace and having fulfilled duty to fullest in the chaos of war. Alongside intricately patterned bas-relief of the floor, having his body seem "afloat" just above is a ingenous choice as it does connect the ethereal spiritual with the material and frozen time (This was used in the film "Gladiator" to best effect).

Thanks So Much for this, apologies if this comment was excessive but seeing how even a digital painting can evoke and express so much is proof that honestly crafted art of any medium has soul that could be felt personally.

Wow! You really put effort into this comment. I cannot express how happy I am that you took your time to read the symbolism on the piece. I knew exactly what I wanted when I commissioned Arhiee, and she managed to bring that vision to life. If you'd like to know more about the character you can follow me on Twitter on Dawnwell96 to keep updated on the project!

Regardless, thanks for putting the effort into the comment. Arhiee created the most masterful art. It will definitely bring interest to the story. Couldn't thank her enough, please continue supporting her work!
