An axe I did once, for a centaur to hold...The centaur was a creation by Jessica Owen, who, if all goes well, should be found here -> Jessica Owen. I actually finished this quite a while ago, but forgot about it! :-s I think the blade is a bit oversized, but who cares anyway...Hope it doesn't hurt your eyes by looking at it! :-s

*first comment dance* I think the blade looks really good, big blades give more momentum and more force for less effort (the whole physics thing).

:-) Maarten De Koster replies: "The whole physics thing was never really spent on me...but I'll take your word for it! ^_~Thx for the 1st comment! 1"

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay my Axe ^_^ I'm going to draw a centaur especially to match it..uhm.. sometime when I get time. Anyway, I love the intricacy of the work on the blade, almost like stained glass in metal, and the windy feeling of the leaves moving around it.. It's perfect 1

:-) Maarten De Koster replies: "hehe don't rush it, I have enough patience! ^-^ Thx, I actually intended to put some glas parts in there, and the leaves are just a simple background, but they worked nicely! ^-^ Thx for the comment! ^-^"

Oh, yes it does hurt my eyes. It is glorious beyond compare! I can't even imagine drawing something this good. It seems very ancient and beautiful yet practical just like something a centaur would use. Excellent work, man.

:-) Maarten De Koster replies: "And to say I did this in only half an hour or so, just fiddling around...glad you like it so much, but you're gonna increase my ego if you keep this up! ;-)"

:-) Maarten De Koster replies: "Axes are awesome! I wuv axes! XD *shrugs* glad ya like the detail ^-^ i hardly ever do drawings without detail 1"

Nothing wrong with oversizing axeblades, or any other weapon for that matter (oh, stop sniggering, you hormone-overdosed teenagers!). As I was saying, axes are great, and everyone should have one just in case the whole world turns fantasy-like!

:-) Maarten De Koster replies: "Wheeeeee in that case i'm safe! I've got loads of axes! ^^ hehe"
