Wow, what a wonderful comment! You definitely made my day, thanks so much!

What really strikes me with this drawing is how the knights seem to almost step out of it. It is truly alive and there is something going on everywhere.
The thing I like most though is that it feels like I am rushing towards the troops myself. You leave an opening in the middle and I can almost see "my allies" clash into the men just outside the painting, while I come charging right into the middle. The knight raising the twohanded sword over his shoulder there in the middle is raising it for me.

It's hard to explain in words. I wish I could explain it in art as you do, but I unfortunately lack the skill.

Anyhow, a truly magnificent piece of art. You have captured the epic moment, truly impressive.

Thanks again for your critique guest – it is a mountain (at least it shall be) – I’ll try to do my best in future to take more care about things like that...

Looks cool, but is that smoke or a mountain on the background?

This work is really stunning! I like the scope it conveys along with its brown tones and red stains of blood. The armored soldiers at some places look more like marionettes which disconnects them from the cruel work do but only leaves undirected chaos.

Great piece, Uwe!

hi there sean Smile - man your comments always make my day - thanks so much - hmmm - i whish i could paint 24 houres a day - but sadly i can´t - i have to do my dayjob to be able to pay all the things which needs to be payd Sad - so i got only time to paint in the evening and at weekend - but i sleep mostly not more than 3 houres a day (which somday have to change) to get all the work done - and yes i have also 5 unfinished pieces laying around here - and so much things in mind which needs to be done - and sooooooooooo less time - sometimes it´s really cruel to be an artist, don´t you think? Wink time is my greatest enemy...

Great work as always Uwe! That castle is really majestic. I like the action of all the charging warriors too. Nice Job! Smile

Art at its best.
