I haven't write a critique in a while, so bare with me here~

1, I really love your brush style and the over all mood. You've always been very good at creating an rather expressive painterly feeling of your art. And I just love the background, I hope i can do that one of those days~

2, the composition is dynamic, with the horse and knight swingin his sward. However, the horse's rare legs got "cut off" at the frame bothers me a little. It'd be nice to see the full figure of the horse, would create a better, more complete composition.

3, I know you're trying to achieve a upside down triangle, to create a dynamic composition. and the figure successfully achieved that. But, the stone on the right hand side in the background broke your composition. Check out this little drawing I made to demonstrate my point.


4, If the horse tilted a bit more, I think the composition would be even more exciting. Check out here...


5, very nice tough on the sward effect, nice color, stands out against background, and draw the attention.

Over all, very impressive piece, I'm being nitpicking here. it's too late to change composition anyway, so keep it as is, it's good work.
What do you think?

Now this is what a black knight should look like! It's not ridiculously over-elaborate, but still looks awesome in every possible way! Especially like the magic sword! :clap:

Awesome work! :headbang:
