During his time with the forest elves, Kestrul was granted the great honor of being given one of the sacred Cyvian bow staves. No other human had ever been so honored, and in the true tradition of the ancient Rangers he gave the bow a name: Star-Shard.

Wow! No comments yet?
This is a REALLY cool picture. You got the proportions right on with the body and the twinblades are sweeet.

You should put a background!!

:-) Jay w simcox replies: "Im pleased you like the blades. On a picture like this the whole sword cant be seen, so i made sure the handles gave the impression that they were weapons of quaility. I hope that carried across to some extent. I might revisit this picture in time and add a back ground. Thanks for the comment."

Oh, I know this blue-eyed guy, have seen him before in your gallery!2 Nice pose and I love the outfit, it's very appropriate for a ranger. The colors are great too... And I agree with the commenter above, the picture is bagging for a background.

:-) Jay w simcox replies: "I actually drew this picture as an avatar for the Neverwinter Nights RPG game which i play with my brother (who plays Rammer) and my friend Leigh (who plays Shard). The game has a great engine which allows players to create their own characters and import their own character portrates. Because of the size these portrates are scaled down to within the game, a back drop would not have translated well so i decided to just go with the colour grade effect in the end. As an avatar this works perfectly, but i think i may revisit this picture and add a background in time. Im putting a lot of time and thought into this character at the moment so its nice you'v come to reconise him too 2"

:-) Jay w simcox replies: "His eyes arnt actually ment to be purple, but a rather light blue, bit of a colour choice misstake on my part i suspect. "
