Four of Swords - old WIP

Embarrassingly old WIP I started back in 2012 for blackantlers. Shortly after I started it I fell into a bit of a depression and didn't really want to draw at all. Their character has gone through some changes over the years, so I dunno about working on it more... Lemme know what you think Florian! :D

As for the subject matter, I suppose that's somewhat questionable too, so I feel the need to explain things a little. This is supposed to be symbolic violence, pretty obviously heavily referencing St. Sebastian (thanks Peter Paul Rubens and Il Sodoma). I was also meditating on the Four of Swords card while working on this, hence the title.

    OHmygod this is really excellent ;3; it totally looks like them, I recognized it immediately....and they love Saint Sebastian, which I also picked up on in here immediately! Your use of symbolic imagery is really fantastic <3
