This Scimitar is one of Moc's weapons (there are a pair of them actually) which are known as hthe Planes-Cutters. Granted by Mother Nature, the blades are capable of cutting through almost anything, and create an opening which leads to another plane of existence of the wielder's choice. Sounds complicated? Well for example if Moc slashes the blade at the arm of his opponent (which he rarely does since he hates fighting) and if it does connect, the arm will be severed off in most cases and, if he thought of Plane of Elemental Fire when he does the slash, the cut which is created by the blade will become a portal to Plane of Elemental fire, thus Flames of extraordinary heat would burst out of the would / portal, and would probably consume the opponent in flames. About the work itself (I know it looks fancy) It's done without drawing with pencil... I do it with Macormedia Freehand and Adobe Photoshop.
