My what big hands he has. A very menacing tone to this one with the overall shade that is splashed over the image, mixed with the situation and expressions to make a very amazing work of art. Well done. ^^
I do not feel I need to make any other comments, because your description sums up what I think about this appropriately.
Now on another topic, I was wondering if I could have your final thoughts on my insert of your character into my fanfic. Did I do it right? Did I miss something? Should I ever do something like this with a different artist, or with you? I don't specifically need a reply here(or at all for that matter), I take messages as well.
You got his character down good! Yeah, he'd be a little more careful when he's been put in his place A bigger and much mightier authority can do that I do salute how you made him so persistant x'D I think Karl perhaps would've begin to show tiny signs of the edge of giving up. (One diamond dog can only handle so much) But overall, it was dang nice! xD
This reminds me of an awesome fanfic where the Mane Six were on a journey and met the brutal leader of a pack of Diamond Dogs who very much makes me think of Karl, except it's Rarity in Applejack's position. Also, Discord was there.
It's called "In Search of the Sun", for those who don't know what I mean.
If I had the money and if your guidelines had the room for it, I'd even commission you to recreate scenes from the fanfic, kinda like how you did for RD's chapter in the "Pony POV Series".
Well, would you ever consider drawing Karl like a king rather than a mere thug? Not a request (for now, or any time in the foreseeable future), just a suggestion. Wouldn't want you to do it without the author knowing first, anyway...
Well, here's an excerpt from the fanfic describing the Diamond Dog leader when Rarity first sees him:
"She found herself before an ornate, gem-encrusted throne, the largest of the dogs sitting in its seat. An elaborate crown of crystals sat on his head, and he held a decorated metal staff with a huge ruby on its end, showing his status. The shining silver plates he wore made his blackened coat look even darker, and his beady eyes seemed to glow with a vicious light."
