It's hard to criticize something that had THIS much careful detail! Overall it's just incredible!
One thing I've noticed that sort of throws it off is that the sword is a bit lacking of blood. Actually, the whole picture is a bit lacking in blood. Unless, of course, he didn't stab them then that's fine but still this is really REALLY good! I still can't believe that there are people out there that put so much patience and effort into stuff like this.
I love the detail in the floor! It amazes me that such work can go into such a simple, basic element of a composition.
I can't help but wonder what's just happened here. The assassin's just walking away, clearly without a care for being stopped. The guards still standing are just watching him go, too. And that sitting guard on the left really captures me. He's watching the assassin walk away with this almost confused look, like he isn't sure what's going on either. Or maybe he's just in shock from his injury. Also, the assassin clearly isn't a stealthy one, and is all but flaunting that symbol on his breastplate. Was he sent to send a message? Make an example of these men?
Great piece. I love the lighting and colors. I love the contrast between the assassin's expensive-looking armor and that almost ragged cloak. That raises another question... Congrats on the DD.
Hahah great picture of a terrible assassin "oh man I am soooo brooding and badass while I calmly walk through the halls...wait...where the target? Why are the doors locked? Wait dont tell me they got away AGAIN!? "
