This looks very nice on your sight. It is in perspective after all when looking at it enlarged. The arms and legs of the prisoner are actually to scale. I was mistaken at first glance. I can see the time taken was great. Good body work and balance. Thanks for doing the artwork! I look forward to seeing the original!

Very nice pencil work. I kinda gave up on using such a wide range of pencils...then again my shading went down in quality when I did so. But your shading is impressive. You must have a lot of patience.

That executioner is a beast. Lots of meaning in the image I see. The prisoner is crucified on the block, the executioner stands between him and the gaping black maw of the portcullis. That is presumably the place that he will be delivered physically when is life has been ended by the executioner. Discarded outside the castle wall.
His spirt delivered into the other isde by the Executioner, to hell for his crimes... Nicely shown in the image James.
Watching that blade swinging down to meet his neck and end his life would make the whole thing a LOT worse for the poor wretch...

The victim is surely unbroken so as to stand watching the axe coming down to behead him...and I'll bet he makes a bravely statement before the end... He's not afraid..

I love this piece. You managed to completely capture the mood at an execution. Similar to the scene in braveheart where the English execute William Wallace.
