Longest Sword by Tsabo6 Longest Sword by Tsabo6
30 min speed paint at daily spitpaint topic:
the longest sword...
I dont know why but when I saw the topic, immediately thought of Rhulad Sengar ( Malazan Book of the Fallen ) and his cursed long sword,
hope you like it! cheers

if you like epic high fantasy you should read those!

Perhaps a way to make this better would be to make the sword just a little bit longer, have him slouch over it a little more, clenching it with both hands as though it is the only thing he has. You may choose to have the light come in from the other side to darken the throne which he is sitting in. Overall it is a very nice piece, and caught my eye while I was skimming through some pictures that came up. The harmony is very nice, and the bright yellow on him serves as a fine contrast to all the blues and greens throughout the piece. I think it is a worthy piece of art.
What do you think?

It is good, it is focused on suffering and lonelines. It could use a bit od malice around the corners,as even when one in a room he was never alone. Cheers.

I love this! The atmosphere is amazing, it really captures Rhulad's torment :) 
(his "waking" scene still gives me chills, it has to be one of my favourite moments in the Book of the Fallen.. I need to read the books again!)

This is possibly the best Rhulad I've ever seen depicted, the atmosphere is spot on!

Great work Tsabo6!!  I love it.  If I were to nitpick, I would say his hands would be on the hilt of the sword as it is stuck there.
I hope you'll do more work from this awesome series.  :D (Big Grin)

Man, I really remember liking these books, but I never got past House of Chains, and I've been putting off rereading since I'm still in the middle of rereading Stephen King's Dark Tower series and I lost my copy of Deadhouse Gates.

I love how you made this. I, too, work in digital art, as you can see from my 2 (only) deviations, and I think this is creative and conservative. I'm glad it's not just another picture of an only partially-clothed female, as you can see everywhere on this sight.
