He has come to the conclusion that in order to fix his world, he needs to destroy it. He has the ability to manipulate shadows and light.

Hi Everyone! ^^
Wow, it has been a long time since I've posted anything here. ^^;
I've had this one finished for awhile now and I figured it was about time I get it up. I previously posed a head close up shot on my facebook page (link below) promising that I'd have this up in a week or two... and that was a long time ago. *sigh* But better late then never as they say.

I'm quite happy with this image. I spent a great amount of time working on the small details (the braids and outfit especially) and I was quite happy to finally finish it. I should also point out that this version I'm uploading here is slightly different then the finished commission, as sophiaexile wanted him to have a wide scoop necked collar (like some of Arwens dress from LOTR). I liked how it looked but I admit I liked this V-neck style a bit better, so that's the version I'm uploading here.

Painted completely in photoshop.
Several reference images used.
No Critique desired.
