Meh.. I totally failed on what I tried to do with this one! D: My intention was to have him point the rapier at the viewer, that being you. ;) However, for the life of me I just couldn't draw it!! I tried for 3 flipping days, but in the end I had to admit that it's just something I can't draw.. perspective can be hard and this one is just beyond me sadly.. I didn't want to discard the whole thing though, since I loved how his face came out! :heart: So I adjusted the rapier. Now it's totally less epic. ;^;

I love the fierce look on his face, his expression speaks volume :D The pose and tilt of the head add a lot of dynamism to the scene, I can even feel the motion! It's a very effective scene in my book! Also you drew him with vey kissable lips *o* such a pretteh boi

On a technical level: even though you said you wanted to have the sword pointing right at the viewer, I think both the composition and setting already make it look like the end of the blade is closer to the "camera", hence slightly pointing to it (an optical illusion of sorts). So if your aim was to strike (no pun intended) the viewer, then it's a success nonetheless, and epic enough :)

Thank you very much. :D
haha! XD yeah I like to put in lips, but on men it often looks a little weird, or even feminine.

Thank you, that means a lot to me coming from you. :D:heart:

I can totally understand certain perspectives are super hard, but I do truly think you did a great job with this regardless. :) Marcus looks super ready for battle, fierce, intimidating and not one to be taken lightly. :) I also love the sword goes out of bounds of the box as does part of his head and crown. :heart: It is such a nice use of space.

Yeah.. some are murder. And some artists are just better at it than others I'm sure.^^;
Thanks. :D 
That was a last minute idea. I used to have a full bg, but I thought this was better. :) I do like having like a box background and parts of the character like sticking out of it. :aww:

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. :giggle:

Even so it didnt turned out as it was planed, I think the adjustion of the rapier is really nicely done. :nod: 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! :heart:

Thank you very much Annie. :)
I had a full background at first, but then decided to do it this way. I just wanted something different. :)
