The Green Knight by LittleFrog626 The Green Knight by LittleFrog626
Half a giant on earth I hold him to be,
But believe him no less than the largest of men,
And the seemliest in his stature to see, as he rides,
For in back and in breast though his body was grim,
His waist in its width was worthily small,
And formed with every feature in fair accord
was he.
Great wonder grew in hall
At his hue most strange to see,
For man and gear and all
Were green as green could be.

-Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Fair features... small waist.... was the green knight a woman?

Either way, loving this picture.

This green armor could inspire me for create my proposed character that is a boy or young man with the green armor in that is a superhero.

I really like this image. It is well done. And, as an English professor, I like the quote too!

Stunning work! So detailed and beautiful; the light really seems to glint off of that armour. He looks very ghostly and frightening -- I don't envy Gawain for having to fight that!

I was driven to hate this tale cause they totally tortured us with it at school, but your art made me love it again!:love:

Thank you; that's based on a a coat of Teutonic armor from a museum piece; all but the helmet which I made up.
