No real warrior would wield an axe with a chipped blade!

Any real warrior’s blade is likely to have notches after a battle! He just hasn’t had time to hone them out again.

What?! You dare to contradict me?! Look at him: is he covered in blood? He was not in battle - he is a poser with a chipped blade!

Ok, so no blood. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t been hard at work ridding the world of undead, ie skeletons.
No dents in his armor or scars: testament to his extreme battle prowess.
No mud on his boots: the afore mentioned undead reside in the depths of an ancient and ruined cathedral which is made of stone.
No cobwebs clinging to his person: the evil of the cathedral has driven away even the spiders.

Good one! But on a serious note, an artistic observation: My father was a front-line combat veteran of World War ll, and he remembers the large amount of blood spilled in battle. In the days of swords and axes, a real warrior would have been covered in blood, or something worse. While I admire many of these artists’ combat scenes, they are not realistic.

i really like this. your only problem might be that although everything else looks very realistic the hair and beard could use some work. also, it that snow in the background or just white dots?

I will assent to your point Paul. I agree that a real battle would leave a real warrior covered in gore and a real warrior would not be foolish enough to use a chipped blade that may break in battle leaving him weaponless. If he did, he’d almost certainly have a short career. I guess I just like to argue.

methinks he is travelling home from a battle and has changed clothes and such but hasnt had time to mend his axe yet ^.^
