You did a great job with this. Both the black and white coloring mix together perfectly The design is really cool and sleek, its like something you would see in the game Dark Souls. Now, I will say that the blank white background is a little distracting. I mean you have this beautiful work up against nothing but a blank, white background. I would suggest that you when you do another one like this, you should create a background that reflects off your creation. It'll give it more of an identity as well make it more alive. Other than that though, great work

Love how striking the fur/cape is, and how well you've integrated different elements into the design without it looking overwhelmingly complicated *w* The shading/highlights on the armor are amazing and I love the realistic muted color scheme
Hmmm, that sword got me wondering what it could be made of; glass... definitely not. Crystal... nah, too simple. Condensed and crystallized magic perhaps, but still a little plain. But if it was mixed with compressed and solidified air, effectively giving it the ability to switch back and forth and in so doing ignore the presence of even the thickest armor, then we're getting somewhere. And not to mention if the spiky cape were of something similar in nature it could give some really badass defense capabilities.
And one last thing, if you listen to Skiltron, may I suggest these selected battle themes from the Fairy Tail soundtrack. [link]
Good question. And yes, neither crystal nor magic seem appropriate for a sword of this kind of warrior. But I like the idea of compressed air! Ok, blame the steampunk wedding from yesterday but that really sounds good! XD
Fairy Tail? The Anime? O_o It's rare for an anime to have an OSt that even reminds of celtic tunes!
Well, the idea does have epic potential and is one that is rarely if ever used. And surely, with such an ability, as long as there is air there would be as many blades and plates of armor as one might ever need. What! A steampunk wedding!? How awesome is that! The most interesting people do for weddings over here is to rent a 1958 Chevy.
Yes, that's the one, and it really is rare. I recently gave in and started watching it from incessant nagging from a friend of mine and I instantly loved the soundtrack. In spirit you could say Fairy Tail is a lot like a Japanese version of Wakfu only with more story, so you can expect a lot of hilarious fun to very appropriate Celtic tunes. Like: [link] And not to mention the frequent bar-fights at the guild. But where it gets epic is how it connects its story arcs. You're literally given pieces of a grander story to piece together while it explores each characters pasts in separate arcs. Then in later arcs you're given another piece that connects the previous pieces that appeared to be random and isolated events into something a lot bigger. (Sounds familiar, doesn't it. )
Jup, steampunk. I thought it's a great topic too. And you should have seen the cake!
*drools* ... *wipes drool away*
The typical white wedding is not really in fashion around here. People wish for something special, something they can remember for a life. And... white does not seem to be able to do the trick anymore.
@Fairytale: XD *facepalms*
I'm currently watching Supernatural Season 7, but I might check Fairytale later. Though I have to warn you: I'm rarely in the mood for funny series. I love dark and sad too much. d:
A... steampunk... wedding cake?!! Do tell! (Or preferably, show. )
Up here it's the opposite. It's almost like anyone who likes anything different is like a demon among devoted Christians, and that's in a city where people find me strange for walking around with my laptop four days a week while the dirty drug dealer dealing outside city hall is apparently normal.
Fairytale: Ah, Supernatural is a funny series. Gotta love Cas' WTF moments. And I think we've established the fact we both love the same type of stories. And having just finished watching the first 150 episodes I can say it's kinda like Wakfu only with story in most episodes. But it's funny with epic, not the other way around. So in comparison to Naruto, Fairytail is funnier in a bar brawl kinda way and it's got something epic building with vanished dragons, but so far Naruto still has a darker and more mindblowing story.
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link photos. After all it was the wedding of a friend of mine, and not my own. I'll ask.
@standing out: Heh, I know that all too well. The kid with the tourette-like vocabulary problem and iPhone-addiction is perfectly normal. And when I read a book while walking home (yes, I read while walking. Took a bit of training but now I quite enjoy it) I get weird looks. d:
Thankfully it's nearly impossible to stand out around here. Even people who walk the streets with only ductape as bra and green hair won't get more attention than anybody else. d: In a way I like that about big cities~.
Standing out: Whoa, that's an useful skill... as long as you don't walk into the street and die of course. And thinking about it, that might be a perfect skill for the linguist reading that old Irish book, if you don't mind me adding it? As many ideas as you're giving I might soon have no other choice but to call you my Muse.
Sadly, that's not the case on this end. Three years ago I moved to this small city where I can literally walk from one side of the city to the other in 20 minutes, it has an overlooking medieval fortress, 6 churches within one square kilometer and a hospital looking like it was taken straight out of Silent Hill with a community is hung up on the American 1950's and apparently paranoid of people carrying laptops in public.
Useful indeed. It's the best place for me to read. Though I do get a lot of nasty comments of people who think I should pay attention to whatever they think of as important.
I'm actually starting to snap at everybody who even just hints to open the mouth for a comment: I had my fair share of bullshit and really don't need to hear more that I'm suicidal and stupid, because I'm reading.
@your village: That sounds... Well, it would sound like a nice and calm place (which I need, one day) if the people would be a bit more modern and tolerant, I guess...? O.o The way you describe it... it sounds more like a time portal into problems. At least it would for me. No offense meant. ^^
