I like the wispy effect of the glow, sort of like a cold flame. Very cool.
Edit: Very nice Work i like it! "THE SWORD IN THE STONE"
The rock is a tad strange. There are a few random black pixels in the bottom right. I like the blue glow though.
I llike it! But your gold is more like yellow than gold...
Definitely beautiful but shouldn't the dark part be a little lighter because of the sword? *shrug
