Knight in Glittering Armor by greggileano Knight in Glittering Armor by greggileano
we always hear about the Knight in Shimmering Armor but did you ever hear about the Knight in Glittering Armor?
i'd really appreciate if you drop some comments for this deviation, & also your interpretation for this artwork. thanks in advance!

this is supposedly done for Spirit Day 2012 but i just couldnt find the time to start doing it and finish it on time, this would also explain the evident use of purple. have a great day! :)

Wow my first DD, i didnt expect this
thanks ^JCROXAS for the suggestion and ^Miss-It-Girl for featuring. :love:

A more intriguing part is that bunch of white roses stuck in his hair unharmed.

The stained glasses are soo amazing. Is it vector?

hi im glad you noticed the unharmed flowers :D

anyway to answer your question, i used vector (pen tool in photoshop cs5) to do the linearts and shapes for the colors of the stained glasses. then i rastered the vector shapes so that i can paint over them and add glass effects. :)

There is so much life into this work of art. That's an expression I couldn't forget if I tried.

uh Interpertation (STORYSTYLE)::
""Dear lord, I've been suffering for so long, now at your feet, i am dying. God please deliver me into your hands. For you I've fought. For you i give my life. You have saved my soul and let it become one with the glory you have made. I am your knight, please heal me as only you can. Please forgive me for I am not without sin as you are. Here I kneel humbled before you, on my knees before your throne. Your guiding light, preserve me. I have never forsaken you, done your work without complaint, to you alone I am faithful, Lord please bring me to paradise. "" His eyes water, gazing towards glowing heavens hopefully, wincing from the fatal wounds inflicted. His time was short, as he very well knew. Bleeding out would be a suffering he was sure he could not bear. However he could not lessen it, for suicide went against religious law. He presses his palms against the flat of his blade, and hoped fervently that The Savior would hear him.~~

im sure you'll be able to do one, just keep on practicing. :) i decided to be serious on practicing my art skills around 3 years ago when i was 18; and from that point in time, i make sure to draw or at least doodle something everyday. it really helped!
i wish you the best and keep believing in yourself. :la:

This is extremely nice work! :) I like the meticulous detail of the scale mail and the rays of light coming from the window look pretty gorgeous too.

As for my interpretation of the work, that window behind the warrior's head looks like a stained glass window you would see in a church. And the golden pattern on his shoulder armor looks vaguely like a crucifix. The wound on the warrior's torso looks pretty serious (although I'm no medical expert). So maybe he's a warrior of some religious order who has died valiantly in combat and now his soul is being received into a glorious afterlife???? I'm not sure how my interpretation would fit in with the whole point of Spirit Day though...

I was thinking more realistically. Even a simple sheet of steel is pretty protective if formed properly. What really matters is actually using the armor to protect yourself.
