Yeah, basically. The feet fade into pure darkness so starkly - it would seems like some light cast from the armor on the feet would light the legs up a bit. Also, it seems like the foot on the right of the picture seems a bit small or thin, like it could be longer by a bit.
Yeah. I was never happy with how the feet looked, they were difficult to deal with. I've had another go at it though, I think it's an improvement.

This is real cool concept. What is this 'teslagrad' of which you speak? If it involves tesla electricity knights it sound pretty awesome.
