Shadow Knight by samliu Shadow Knight by samliu
While trying in vain to tidy up my messy condo, I stumbled accross a xerox of a sketch I started some six years ago when I was heavily into Everquest. I did the sketch after finally getting the Stone Etched War Sword from the Plane of Earth. It was a sword I remember seeing on my first week of playing that only one guy on our entire server had. I remember asking him about it and from that day, gaining that sword became a personal goal, benchmark, and gauge for when my Shadow Knight, Cyclonos had arrived. Such good memories.

I changed up the drawing a good bit, but at least it's semi done and I can put my Shadow Knight to rest :p

Agree...every now & then I think, 'oh I should log in!' but it's all nostalgia. By the time I relearned the game it would be a week!

That game REALLY made you work! The epic quests were killer and overall such a time sink. I remember spending hours looking for a group and holding on for dear life once you got into one then 7 hours would pass. I guess the pain is what makes it memorable haha!

Yes it sure did. Community was a necessity, even if you played a solo class. My main was a Necromancer, & I duo'd with an Enchanter more than anything. We always pushed ourselves to see what the two of us could accomplish. I did group some, raided a lot, & before leaving got my Epic & Epic 1.5, still the sexist weapon I've ever laid eyes on. What class did you play? (:

Hello SK! One of my best EQ friends was a Necro and I use to mooch xp from him while he kited. It felt pathetic haha. Once I joined a raiding guild and gear it got easier. At my height I 3 boxed SK/Cleric and Bard and grouped with another friend who 2 boxed Druid and Enchanter. Those were fun times! I actually loved most of the Epics models. Especially the Sks but I am biased haha.

I did a sketch of him with it on my blog. Innoruuk's Dark Blessing

I <3 Bards - there were never enough IMO. That 3-box you ran was a huge support system, wow, awesome :) Liked the sketch too!

man- you're crazy good at drawing the complex shapes in a way that feels so 3d- all sorts of angles and yet it is "on model" (for lack of better term). I felt that looking at your other artworks as well.

The sturdy but sleek armor shape is so cool here!

Damn thanks a ton, that's like the most spot on observation of what i try and do. Well not even try, I toil and angst over it to the point i will touch it up a year later even ... okay maybe it's a psychosis that I've just accepted. Thanks again that's a big compliment for me!

Wow! I wish I had a cool title like "Shadow Knight". Its almost too cool though. I don't think I could live up to that kind of hype. This is a bad ass drawing, nonetheless.

Thanks! That was a cheat so i wouldn't have to do a background :p In honesty I was always a little sad when stuff got shrunk down and you lose some of the detail. So it kills 2 birds with one stone as it were :p
