Wow, superb hair detail. I think people see him as feminine because of his lips, maybe.
21 Nov 2001:-) Kelly R Hogan
This is amazing.
I love the way you've framed it, too, very original

Excellent expression...do more!

This is amazing. I love your shading style and your lines, they're all so clean and crisp. This is wonderful. The face has definate character and attitude, and the wave of the hair has realistic grace!

Oh, yes, he is glad to be fighting 2 It is great , except the way his skin folds on the forehead is a bit.. err.. nevermind, it's stilish 2

:-) Christopher 'Topher' Allen Shepard replies: "I am really glad that you like "The Swordsman" Dragos, I think it is one of the best pictures in my gallery.As for the folds in his forehead, I guess their appeal varies from person to person.I took them out once, and then put them back in when Rochelle Green told me that she missed them.Your right the wrinkles are a "style", a form of expression, so I actually like him this way.Thanks for your comment. ^___^"

I wonder if you've ever read the Sword of Truth series... though this looks nothing like the main character, Richard, I think it captures the same sort of feeling that is portrayed through the writing of him using the Sword of Truth... great books there, read them people... I love that hair...
15 Aug 2003:-) Allen R Palmer
The detail in this is quite good...the hair was illustrated perfectly....awesome!
