'A blade as bright as it is dark,
of magic and corruption,
as treacherous as it is mighty,
coveted by thieves and kings alike,
stands unclaimed on the battlefield,
over the remnants of dead armies.'

In case you didn't see... the blade is made of diamond and magically fused with the hilt ;)

I just don't know how anyone could possibly think that it is EASY to produce something like this on a computer... it's just mind-blowing that you have so much talent. You bring so many details into this piece and I love the light reflections.

The hand that's reaching for the blade is a nice touch.

Wow... again, wonderful lighting! I like the idea too, and the whole play of light and shadow with the silhouettes of the battlefield is really well done!
