Awesome work! I love the sort of late Medieval / early Renaissance style of it.

Hello! I love that piece of art you created!
Would you allow me to use it for a non-profit civilization5 mod I am making?
Of course all the credits for this image will be linked to you!

The hilt and pommel look way too small for the blade. I say that because i am disheartened by it; The armor looks so, how do i say it, functional and "historically possible". It's obvious you put a lot of work into researching them. So why not also the sword?

I could go on about the blade, but i will refrain from that.

Yeah a blade that size, it would probably be a two handed sword handle... its right, everything else looks so good, except for this..The problem is its hard to purposefully ignore as well.. and focus on the good things.

Exquisite. The armor is fantastic, but even more than that, the pride and the dignity of both the knight and his dog is amazing.

Interesting and compelling.

I don't kno but I've got a feeling of melancolia and accomplishment emanating from this art.
