WOW! Why this didn't receive a Mod's choice is beyond me. This picture is very realistic, and you are to be commended on, well, all of it! =)

My first thought was that the characters looked too static for a battle scene. But it actually fits; that brief pause as the one guy realizes he's been stabbed, and before the first one pulls the weapon out. And you really can't beat that armor.

amazing, love the trickle of blood on the spear head, but has anyone heard the version where Arthur takes Mordred from Morgause when he's young and raises him as one of his knights of the round table? just a thought...

Very impressive artwork (as are the rest of the pictures i have been through by you). However, (being a history major and all...) there is one flaw: Arthur has the sword and mordred has the spear. Other than that this rocks =)

(if we’re talking about flaws...) Im pretty sure mordred gets it to the side of the head, not in the stomach. Aurthur get’s slashed, and as mordred goes to finish him off, aurthur brains him
...don’t think i dint love this pic though...

This is an amazing painting. You have mad skills.
I was noticing that people were saying that the composition was wrong, as far as Mordred and Arthur’s weapons and such. Actually, this is exactly how the scene happens in Morte D’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory. In that early version, Arthur did indeed have a spear, with which he ran Mordred through. Then Mordred pulled himself along the spear’s length until he was close enough to deliver a lethal sword blow to his father’s head, after which Mordred fell dead.
Also, as to Mordred’s expression...I personally think it is great. He has an extremely focused and determined look about his face, as though he has decided he will get in one last blow before he dies, no matter what it takes. He would have to be extremely determined in order to go through the pain of pulling himself further onto the spear. Its a look of desperate, cold hatred in my opinion.
