You have a keen eye for details. I especially like the manner in which you drew the riders cape. It is very vivid. Good job. Patter

I thank you so much for your comments, and compliments Marely, coming from an accomplished artist such as yourself it's just more icing on the cake.I'll be updating this piece within the week, making the sky darker thus adding a more foreboding atmosphere to make the scene more harmonious with the Villian, and cropping it a 'lil' bit better.Yes it was fun to do, except at the beginning lol, I was afraid of making big mistakes, and or having accidents. Especially after completeing something I was pleased with such as the drapery then ruining the whole thing making that a waste of time. Wink

Must have been fun using the crowquil, the results are fabulous. I have always appreciated hatched ink, it's just a lovely aesthetic!. This is very good work victor. Thumbs up ^^>.

Thanks Audi I really appreciate your kind words, and am glad you liked it. Hehe my hand is ok now so yours should hopefully be as well. Wink Hopefully as I practice more, I'll get faster at this.

Wow, nice ink work. I use dip pens occasionally and from my experience this must've taken you forever to do.

This is stunning!! What incredibly fine work. I love your trees and grass. And I don't even want to think of the hours of detail work in the main figures. My hand hurts in sympathy. But thank you for posting this. What a find! Do more, do more.

Art at its best.
