Edit, April 19th 2013:

A-hah-hah... what the fuck. Haven't really checked my dA account much, in part due to internet connection problems, then I finally decide to give my account a look tonight, and see this. Almost didn't notice the DD, either... Probably took me about ten minutes of looking at comments, and the unusual amount of requests from groups, before I finally figured it out. :zombie:

Thanks for the comments, everyone -- I'll try to respond to most of them individually as soon as I get around to it.

As for the artwork, as you can see by the date, it's almost a year old now, so there's a few things I'd do differently nowadays. But overall I'm still fairly happy with it. Also, this is my first DD on a non-collab piece, which is nice. Now, if you really want to make me happy dA, feature one of my Fantasy art originals. *hint* Heh heh.

Oh yeah, and it's also nice to see a pic of Valkenhayn featured, since he's still one of my favourite characters. Now I feel motivated to do another one some time...

Whoa-ho-ho. Nicely done, I have the feeling he's about to shred someone.
