This marks the first time I used speed lines and a kind of blurred after image. In this case, both are used to show that D. Dan is falling as well as indicating his body movements. The arm with the sword is swinging counterclockwise down. The other arm and two legs are kind of going back and forth like how Micheal Jordon moves his arms and legs when doing one of his signature slam dunks. LOL. ^\/^.
The sparkle on the sword along with the glowing effect simply make D. Dan's sword ever so much more epic looking. This, along with everything else, make this look like a screen cap to a video game like on Soul Calibur 4, or some other game with a lot of action and fantasy, like Final Fantasy 13. LOL. ^\/^.
One has to admit this looks so darned epic. LOL. ^\/^.
