DAMMIT! an hour and 20 minutes too late for an Aslan jokeASLAN! YOU CAME BACK! *cough cough, sorry*
Really liking it, pretty wicked prince.
I really like the mini, though i agree it looks a bit friendly. I think red eyes and a few coats of wash would change the tone very well though.
Is the stuff around the sword just a flourish, or is it supposed to represent something? I think a glow from the coils would also look nice, but that depends if it fits your fluff or not.
