I love the movement. This is so gorgeous, the shading and textures of the armor are great. For some reason, I'm really drawn to the eye area, especially the eyebrow. Must be the amount of detail and sharpness in that area, it's well defined. The shading of the eyebrow almost makes it look as though it's glowing. I also really like the contrast of the white hair against the rest of the painting.
