OK, so it isn't 'high fantasy', but it's one of the first finished, original pieces I've done in over two years (Painter 8, entirely). People have been harping on me to post something else, but I was going through a growth phase, which is usually punctuated by utter digust for everything I produce. I did, however get motivated by Don Seegmiller's new book and most especially City of Heroes, which my friends are playing (I have complicated access issues). So, it may seem like he's copping a feel, but that's only secondary. Honest. He's married. It might be better if you didn't mention this one to Mrs. Mercurion. She might get a little hot (oh, I slay me).
