The brave knight lost his left eye in a battle with a trickster demon so he fashioned his helm for further protection by covering the useless eye hole. Since the battle, the knight has not been seen without his armor. Some say he refuses to take it off to cover the scar that marks his shame. Some say he is honoring his defeated foe. And there are those who say it is no longer the eye of a man who peaks through the helm, but that of something far more sinister.

Loveless Midnight #1 - Armor of the AgesBe it in wars of ancient times or the present conflicts of humankind
Whether in the wildest battles of science fiction and epic fantasy combined
Ranging our past long gone or imagined futures far off
There is always striking armor worn by the defenders and offenders of warring factions
Ready for the daunting clash of fatal interaction
Designed to protect, intimidate and impress, they serve the same purpose in every realm
Dull iron, shiny chrome, simple or intricate
The paladin, the space marine, the dungeon keeper, the cybernetic,
Try bullets, swords or lasers
Metal versus metal
In any place, any age, any plane of reality
Standing against these fighters is a fool's mentality.
Meet these valiant warriors in their astounding second skins.
Mystery and intrigue, blood and twisted metal, fire and cold steel. The story you've woven with a few sentences and this intriguing art piece makes me want to learn more about this character. Is he good? Is he evil? or has he moved quite beyond such concepts to something different? In particular I like the refinement progressing from the bottom of the image to the top.
The Other One.
