Ah say, dayum!!!!! All sorts of stuff to like about this one!! The sprawled bodies are placed well in the picture and tell the story, and the blood stains are about a hundred percent better! The seemingly 'glowing' quality to the stains on the sword seem to make it appear as though the sword has internal power on its own, and if that's not the intended effect, go with it, baby! ^_^
Finally, Nova.... the suit is extreeeeemely nice, and I like the little techie bits visible just beneath the surface. Nova's pose is exceedingly well done, and suitably moody (the way the eyes are highlighted really brings out the emotion in the piece), without ever detracting from the subtly-blank look that makes Nova appear less-- or more-- than human (which, if I've not told you before, I like quite a bit. Save the abject-horror expressions for when she comes up against the gorgon. )
This is a seriously awesome pic, dude! Keep it up!
