WOW. I don't really think you can describe in words how awesome this Bladewind is. Mighty, duh, yeah; you look at this girl and you know she demands immediate respect. Very elegant, powerful being. As always, I'm mind-blown, and I feel honored to even be able to comment on this masterpiece of awesomeness.

Truly awesome details and I love the way you have made the highlights. -^^- But-- 130 layers?! O_O Couldn't you have merged some of them? I mean... It would have been great to see this pic as great as it could have been. :)
