Damn man, that piece is awesome. I love the contrast of the black, red, and blue on the warrior, which is all the more eye-catching due to the rather monochromatic background. Not to mention the sweet sword. I also love the way the characters are posed, and the look of disgust in the warrior's eyes.
some would say it is the beginning of the guy with the sword...but it isnt...more like the early middle...he's been planning and plotting to get to this point, now he is able to move forward. while it is the end of the other. or is it?
i do wonder though...the defeated has his mouth open...what is he saying. he's definitely not begging though. this really draws you in though, so many questions about what is happening. it expresses so much, but for everything that is expressed it begs a question in its place.
anyways SIIICCCCC peice. love the composition of this peice...the armor and sword..the muscles..anatomies...everything is top-notch here.
Wow, this is awesome as just a sketch, you should seriously take this idea and turn into a cleaner image. Both of the characters look so individual, and you can see the power in the victor and the pain of the defeated. Very well done!
