Sorry for writing so much Smile

But this work is awesome also!

Grim defeated king on the battlefield, dying in despair surrounded by his griefly fellows - well, that is what I like!

P.S. Although the work is great, armour of the king is a little boring, IMHO

the way this was done shows gr8 interest to to exprssions. wonderful depiction of the lights from heaven shining down on the king, proving more then just death but triumph. its like"hah i hav killed the king" then the king rises and transcends his powers to the woman, its like an entire story all in just that pic. very well done and truly emotional.

a fellow artist.

Nicely done! Great atmosphere of grief, which I can't imagine was easy to pull off.

Wow! Great mood and atmosphere. I don't know if the composition works too well, though,maybe because he lies on one side it looks more as if he has stumbled and brings him out of the focus.
But I really adore his face and armor. Anything else works just great!

Has that great rennaissance oil look to it, very dramatic. That guy was huge too!

Very effective and dramatic use of colour and composition - I like it - a lot!

Art at its best.
