Don't mind the comments bellow. People will like what they do, but insulting what others like in that manner is just trolling. That's a good render, and it made me want to search for more SAO art. Good job. ^^
I really don't understand why this kind of shit is allowed on deviantART.. at least if you would link back to the original, that might show some kind of respect to the actual artist.. but still, dA is supposed to be for actual artists/writers/etc sharing their work (not sharing to the full extent of its meaning, of course), improving, collaborating, and whatnot.. ugh o-e
If this is one of those rare cases when someone actually made the artwork that they "rendered," I apologize, but I'm pretty damn sure that I am right about this based on your "artist's" comments..
Sorry if it seems that I am picking on you/singling you out of the many people submitting "renders" to dA, but honestly, I am sick of seeing them here. It's just as bad as tracing/stealing artwork (in fact, that's what it is for the most part)... :I
