While I am not one of your biggest fans, this was still great to see because really shows how talented you are. It has been a long time since I have seen an entry, but I do recognize the character. The most awesome thing is that he's shown with all this fire around him. It's a great way of justifying and showing off the lighting effects. I don't know what creature's blood is on his sword. It almost looks like white blood!
I don't quite recognize the sword, but I have of course seen so many swords it's hard to tell. It's this sort of thing that makes you eager for the next chapter. It has been going on for a very long time! It looks like he might be on a volcano because he appears to be on some mountain and the background is red. A white gorilla could handle that!
