I freaking love this picture! I think it's mostly because you get to see such a realistic portrayal of something you see so often in fiction. I can't really tell how the blood works. I think it looks more like he's being impaled by a stick. The other half of the beam appears to just be a stream of blood.I also love the background.
You see this sort of stuff all the time in action cartoons. Every single splatter comes off wonderfully. It's all of the utmost detail. This guy's hands kind of look like scissors or knives. He's still doomed. The fact that it's so long works so great too.
