[url="]Prince Elric of Melniboné[/url] and his cursed sword, Stormbringer!

I read a couple of the books back in June, and while they're super-kitchsy, and a solid example of how not to write (Elric is a champion whiner, pompous jerk and Gary Sue), his backstory is sort of interesting, in a "this-was-the-sixties-so-emo-exiled-prince-characters-were-still-newish" kind of way. And as cliche as a soul-stealing sword is, Stormbringer's still pretty cool. (Maybe it's just because it's basically the Kullervo story, but with elf-people. I don't know.)

The waves in the background are just part of Imryrr's crazy architecture. I figure that a place called "the dreaming city" would have some really weird walls in its palace.
And whoever did the cover art for the books when hey were published: waaaay too many instances of Elric in manties. Yuck.

luckylace222Man, you must make a tutorial on how you make such awesome texture in your pictures! Just 6 hours too!

If you want some criticism, the right hand's finger seems a little short and so does the right arm compared to the left. I adore the lighting effect in the back. It would look even more amazing if his eyes shone more brightly since it was hard to concentrate on his face.
