The Crusader

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

That cold cold unemployed summer of 2005... Part of a set of pictures I made for the homepage of the MUD known as Austin. For some reasons the page never got updated and there I've been ever since, with a group of pics unseen and unknown and unpaid. Hence they finally come here, after all these years. Class representation- This "Crusader" was an utter failure when it comes to design. Originally I thought as most do- "Crusader huh? One o' thems with white robes and red crosses on 'em. Oh yeah, I get it!" Halfway through I realized that, why the henk would a fantasy crusader in a fictive world wear the traditional colours and style of the christian history of reality? So therefore I changed it. I wanted to give him the feel of a defender of some undefined "natural" hozy-cozy tree hugger faith, hence the brown and green. Mistake. He looks like some kind of ranger! Or Hippie! I hereby give all and anyone permission to use this picture! RULES for this is simple; 1- You will NOT use the picture for any kind of monetary gain. Non-profit and non-public only. 2- You will NOT use my picture in any way that it may be connected to or seem to condone hatred, racism, pedophilia, other illegal activities etc. You know what I mean. Keep yourself clean, and keep my stuff clean. 3- You WILL give creds where creds are due; IOW write my name on the project should anyone besides yourself lay eyes upon it. 4- You WILL drop me an E-mail and tell where, how and why the picture is used; 5- IF you use it, you WILL enjoy it! About six hours, Photoshop 7 and a mouse only- 2005
