The lighting and shading of that knight is fantastic. The horse, too, deserves a bit of admiration and outright gawking. Beautiful work! :thumbsup:

Hey, the horse looks good! and you've said you can't draw horses :) I like the minute detail of the pieces of armour that can be seen from under his robes, and the glove - superbly shaded. And the texture on the helmet is also greatly done :)

I wish I can work with oils like that. I tried to once but.. it was not really enjoyable.
Nontheless, a wonderful, beautiful rendering of a templar knight. That would be something I would like to hang in my room.
