Having fallen to the ground, he reaches desperately for his weapon. Drawn in pencil.

Ooh! I love the perspective of this, I can never seem to get interesting angles right. The sword is beautiful, I want it! I love the sillouette against the moon, looks cool

:-) Jonathan E Miller replies: "Thank you! I concentrated on the sword, I wanted it to be the main focus. I kinda slacked on the rest, though. I've got some better stuff coming up."

I really like this picture, you managed to capture a sense of motion–something I have trouble with...blah. Also your job making the attacking figure dark and ominous is amazing–he's so much scarier now then if you could actually see him clearly. Keep up the good work!

:-) Jonathan E Miller replies: "Thanks! I tried to actually give the attacker some form in the darkness as well."

Whew! Good job on the perspective and the posture! There’s movement in it, cool!

Oh, nice classic scene! Terrific and bold choice of perspective. Tricky stuff, but I think you pulled it off very nicely. I especially like that you tilted the view of the floor, but with that in mind I think the shadowy figure should also have been a bit tilted. A difficult layout but it looks good, so great job!
