Superb. Kinda reminds me of Thomas Canty's illustrations, if you are familiar with his work. I was just casting about for some new oval shield designs since I just got in 40 new shields, so at the least I can use that.
One question though - due to the placement of the highlights and the narrowing effect of the coat....ummmm, Gil-Gald looks a bit....androgynous.
Anyway, great job. I'll have to print out the whole thing and start cutting as soon as I get a chance.
