Screeching like a crazed raptor, the White Knight let his cry become the force behind his blade as he brought it down. His bloodshot eyes reflected a hue that was far deeper. Yes, D's eyes. The blood that'd coursed down off the Hunter's forehead ran in a crimson line to his lips. (VHD: The Rose Princess, p. 90)
Tthis is not so much an illustration of that scene (there's no background!) as a portrait of D-sama. This time, instead of bowing to the awesomeness of Yoshitaka Amano, I decided to see if I could compete with him. Mmmm...it's hard to say. Our styles are quite different. The cover for Dark Nocturne was a great source of inspiration, but I can't honestly say that I like it more or less than this.
