Âsax was born in 1042, and his life was completely unremarkable until he slew Rusmo Mournfulcackled. Rusmo failed to kill a single creature before Âsax slew him in early 1053. Âsax, for his part, never stopped considering himself a member of his nameless tribe of cave swallowmen. Due to Âsax's efforts, said tribe is now listed on the legends screen, though it has no symbol or name. Its history only records Ejem, Ana, and Atu Wraithwhipped becoming its enemies.

A lone cave swallowman rises up from the nameless ranks of his tribe to defend the last remnants of dwarven civilization. That bird was a saint, embodying two of the many great aspects of dwarven civilization: war and crazy names for garbage items.

The year is now 2015, and the dwarven civilization thrives. Upon the peak of Mt. Spear, overlooking all of the Mountainhome, this statue stands tall.

This is pretty cool. I'm no artist, so I don't have a lot of constructive criticism. I really like the depth of color on the wings, and the triumphant pose is pretty badass as well. And he's got some wicked triceps lolz.

Brb gonna write a dirty fan fic about this. I have a good idea for a tsundere Ana who falls in love for this glorious winged cool glasses wearing son of a gun.

I feel inspired now. May God shine his light upon thee Yom for your never ending creativity which brings harmony and joy in the hearts of us, the humans.

With bated breath and readied hand I await your dirty fanfic. May the gods protect you and slay writer's block with a spear of sky-forged diamond.

Wow, it's like being there and stuff. I like the clouds and the sig. The set of aviators allows the subject to see more than just eyesight and that's important. The blue background reminds of a slick animation or and oldschool desktop background. Pick and choose if you will, but it's good character and probably gives people a lot of hope too and stuff. Congratulations.

Nice weapon, nice feathers. Would fly again.

I like it! But I have a couple suggestions. I think that the wings would look nicer if the colors were blended, rather than the sudden change in the shade of blue. I also think that blue is too overused here, so maybe a sunset in the background. Also the tip of the spear would look better if it made the entire spear symmetrical, so it is equal on both sides. Overall, I like it, but it could be improved upon. :)
