You know, I say time and time again that I can never tell exactly how much work Vampyrist puts into his shading because it all just looks so natural and seamless. Well this one is much the same, mostly helped by the fact that a huge chunk of the shading here is so stunning you aren't paying much attention to the rest. Vampyrist is a master of glow effects and in terms of energy effects I'd say he's probably the best there is. Just look at the fore-arms here and tell me I'm wrong. And there's excellent use of items, male-alternate arms used to create a rougher skin texture really adds to the character. So, yeah, pretty impressed by this one.

Good stuff, esp. the Ratman–I think he works at a gas station near me.
