Last year I read "The Once and Future King" by T.H. White and LOVED it...I was pretty much the only one. Everyone else I knew that read it thought it was awful. Anyway, it's the story of King Arthur and his knights. I really liked Lancelot, so I drew him (and pretty much everyone else, but Lancelot was the only one that got inked).
In T.H. White's version, Lancelot had a deformed face. That's why I drew him a la Phantom of the Opera with a hideous, grotesque side...when I read it I pictured the other half to be gentle and normal. Anyway, you should read it if you haven't.
This was actually drawn and inked last year, but I only just got around to coloring it. I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out; it was largely an exercise in painting metal realistically and still trying to escape cursed muddy colors. And I loves Lancelot and the other knights.
