another image resulting from a weekends stress reducing art therapy.

Flexing my anatomy muscles - most of the work here was on the hands. Figure i needed the practice and they didnt come out half bad in the end. 

Textures all by hand, using these amazing brush sets:

Nice use.  It's always cool to see when people look past the sword in the stock.

Pieces :peace:

yeah its great stock. Actually it was the  shape of the sword that drew me to the image. I think originally i wanted a vector line sweeping across the image in place of the sword, keeping the flowing movement going. But as soon as I'd roughed in the basic figure and rotated it upright a little I got the idea for this. Ultimately the fluidity in the stock was what got me. Kudos :)
