Artwork Description

The brief called for a black wraith on rearing horseback. Difficult to avoid similarities with Nazgul, and with Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow, but hopefully I've avoided being *too* close to either.

Quite wonderful -- especially love the horse's glowing breath and the suggestion of a fiery interior! Perfect accent...

Very nice work! It's different enough on its look, i didnt think of nazguls or other "seen before" black knights.
