Blides
"The Wall"


Blides remains a mistery for everyone. He is not a very talkative knight and is a very kept being. His helmet keeps is face hidden in darkness.
He wields a baton chained to his arm, and legend says that he can decimate entire armies with one swing. According to testemonies of soldeirs that fought alongside him, they say the only sound that comes from the depts of the helmet are the battle cries and shouts he utters during battle.

Some say he is the shade of former king Etallah, some say he is former king Etallah, risen from the dead to protect the current king and his beloved Amaldan

He arrived out of nowhere and without notice. During the tournament Raziel saw potential in him and decided to pit him against the rest. He outbested some of the finest and, despite all his power and rebbelious spirit he is still loyal to Raziel.


im surprised it took so little time,
i started it sunday and only worked on it wednesday again, since work got in the middle, so im surprised frankly. Either this guy was easier to finish or im getting a lot faster.

I don't really have more to say about this dude, i took alot of shortcuts and learned a few tricks which is always a very good thing, my only wish was that the armor could have been a little darker but the overall effect came out good.

Hope you guys enjoyed it, no time to spare, back to work chop chop.
Any comments and critiques are more than welcome of course

~Cheers

I personally love this it really just shows me how powerful he is with every detail when i look at this i think of how i would fill if i were to come against this knight i love the mixed feeling of a black night kind with a demon warlord i get from this thumbs way up as for the side bio/story it was also very impressive reading it gave me the every feeling of being in the form of listening to the story of a bard this piece is very inspirational to my darker side in ways i cant explain and with it you earned a watch thank you for creating this work of modern art (claps)

Bastante porreiro este little guy, e aqui já aplicaste bem a cena do gradiente na sombra começando mais escuro nos pés, e ficando mais claro na parte de cima. Não é que não tenhas feito o mesmo com os outros, mas aqui nota-se melhor. Só não tenho a certeza quanto à sombra no chão, mas acho que tavas com pressa XD hahah

I think maybe it's just the language barrier... Maybe? But the fact that you say it's a relief that people are likin' it mean's you you are happy that people are fond of it!!! Right? Anyhow... You're so welcome! Keep up the wonderful art!

Personally i think that everyone would point out more errors there and whatnot.

Yeah... I've noticed that some people like to point out the bad and seem to "forget" to say anything about the positives. CONSTRUCTIVE Criticism is great but people seem to do more of the Criticizing and a lot less of the Constructive, lol or complimenting/praising. Well look there... I've gone off on a rant! lol Have a great weekend and hope to talk to you again!

Excellent job. Good job on the blue/grey color, it makes the shield's face stand out even more. And the mace looks suitably crush-capable. Not much else to say here.

yeah i took the mace down a notch, it was way over the top before, maybe ill get to rework that other mace somehow so it fits someone else :P

An ogre or similarly muscled creature could wield such a weapon. Though ogres aren't typically shown with knowledge of metallurgy advanced enough to create such weapons, so it suggests someone is arming and armoring ogres for some purpose, perhaps shock troops or tanks in their army…

Too much thought already.

Yeesh, so many image messages coming in that every time I refresh my page I get another half dozen. :P
