    Zombie knight. Believe me, if I could have used a reference, I would've. I've never even seen necrotic flesh before. I won't be accepting questions about the validity of that.
    With the outline and the background, it looks a little childish, and I don't dislike that. Paint is an interesting medium. I'm not great, but this is a lot more fun than... uhhh... no comment.

    Zombie knights are pretty awesome. Too bad they don't exist anymore. That's what my pal Sedgewick always tells me before laughing maniacally, anyway. Smug bastard.

    Guy wielding a jabberspamming gladius and wearing that one head. You know which one. The metal one.
    Bit off way more than I could chew with this. That was extremely painful... that's why I'm gonna keep doing it. I changed the canvas color at the end, spare myself the trouble of playing adult coloring book--this application has about as much functionality as mspaint. It's like mspaint in a lot of ways.

    I was real busy last weekend, couldn't do anything. Not to say that this one was any less so, but hey, I got it done, so heh. The recent announcement got me thinking. I can't help but feel a sense of apprehension.

    Hmm. Well, I figure irregular spam isn't much worse than regular spam, so here's another thing. This time I got a poem to go with it, because poems are art. Play the shell game to see which underwhelming prize you get! Bots need not apply.

    That marbled body, heaven's glory stole,
    Bewreathed in darkness, setting sins aright,
    Breaks surface, shining in its riteless role;
    It signals shadowed passage of the night.

    The journey paused, beware the freezing sting!
    But mind the pitching of the camp, attend!
    They say these grounds are blessed, a hallowed thing.
    Right then the land is shook, the depths unmend!

    Pulsing portal, screech electric,
    Darkened servants, Hell concentric.
    Short your breath but long the darkness,
    Doom from every battered carcass.

    With biting steel and claws and fangs enraged,
    Through only screaming death your fears assuaged.

    Sonnet variant. Mostly iambic pentameter, but the third quartet is trochaic quadrameter. If you want to know what it's about, take a wild guess, my friend.

    The creatures of the land. The zombie knight's chestplate has something special on it; is it supposed to be a reflection? Did I violate the laws of Euclidean space? Who knows?
    ractice makes perfect, and I'm gonna need a lot of that. On a related note, sorry about the teeth.

    What, you want a quarter or something?

    The subject matter resonates with me because of nostalgia, I'll be honest. Obviously I won't linger too long, I got another thing in mind. Nothing else to say, really. Two months left.

    Ok, I got another one. Bad timing. Really bad. But not as bad as... you know where this trope is going. Another poem, too. Try your luck! Sorry, I haven't any left.

    No loitering

    Contact, contact, bells alarum!
    War declared, the traitors, damn 'em!
    Banners forward! Any cost t'
    Fend the savage, weapons crossed!

    Live enshrined in halls of yore!
    Honor! Purpose! Then, amor!
    For King! For country! Gold and glory!
    Comrades, ranks, godspeed, to war!

    War as winded-long as life, vigor waning as the strife,
    Fog of iron blind the remnants, embers now of ghostly em'nence.
    Villains, sleepers, isled rangers, new arrivals, court admirers,
    Skel'tal crew of orchestrators, pillars, Will exemplifiers.

    Ranks of mottle, halls of sidelong heckling, hoping, either, or;
    Plight of weathered vet'ran hands, disquiet suff'ring dogs of war.

    Listen, I actually tried very hard not to make this look like a sonnet. I started from scratch and everything. But I split up the opening quartet into an octet, then into two quartets, and it... it just works. It reads much differently, though.

    front7flag.png I'm abusing the medium. Was fun though.

    Flag looks a little plastic, but it matters little. We're all toy soldiers. Ehhwot?
