Defend Your Nuts by Wildweasel339 Defend Your Nuts by Wildweasel339
The bandits had long sought to steal the great swordsman's nuts. The nuts were so grand, in both size and luster, they became famous even beyond the grove. In a forest full of dry and shriveled nuts, they were truly a sight to behold. As individuals, the thieves always failed to lay hand on them. The Blade Master was far too swift, too keen and alert. Now, as Winter nears, the bandits have joined together in a desperate attempt to obtain the precious nuts.

Something silly and fun, created for Gnomon Workshop's monthly challenge "Master of Blades".

I love the blurry, slightly out of focus quality that your paintings have.  And in this one, the scarf fluttering behind the swordsman is fantastic.

Man this is just so cool :lmao: Seriously made me laugh :D And it's not only a neat idea, but really well presented. A good composition where I'm being lead around both by value and lines...it really works well :nod: I wonder though, what does he do with all these nuts? Is he a stingy nut millionaire who just won't share? Is he a nutty robin hood who spreads them amongst the poor? Or is he just plain insane like scrat? :D

Erm, now please storyboard the next 30 seconds in a couple of panels :D

Reaaaally nice work =]

It's awesome when you browse around on DA and suddenly stumble upon a piece that smacks your senses silly. Maybe it's because this reminds me of Redwall, but I really, really enyoyed this piece.
Awesome work!
