I have been planing on comment on this lovely artwork for a long time now. But now my arm is acting up.
so typical, but yet I want to give it ago, might take my little pure time.
Even so it didnt turned out as it was planed, I think the adjustion of the rapier is really nicely done.
I really enjoy the design of it also, so nicely, love the handle. And the blurry part gives the picture a deeper perspective. Marcus himself looks very handsome, I have a weakness for guys being in action like this. I like you show us he is not just a fancy roalty but also a fighter if nerserssary. His sharp eyes and the hair I love very much and the blu glow added from the side of the hair to see where the lights come from, looks very nicely as well. ^^ The same goes for his crown with the blue/green light/shadow from the side. I really like he sticks out from the background and its abstract but you understand he is in the nature.
You did wonderful!
