Thanks XB3rt :)

Htogrom- great action!

XB3rt - Really like the soft forms developed for the anatomy and armour.

olilotz - A wildly different take on the topic. Great job.

Barcusi - Cool graphic approach, really makes for a strong composition.

Creeto - Completely original, freaky and creepy. Great concept!

Wexter - Really nice sketch....loose and fluid....and very comical!

I already had piece with "black sword" theme, but it was more than 60min, in pen.
Inspired by Berserk manga.
