+100! It reminds me a lot of those Simak covers I mentioned. Great stuff!  :bigthumb:

That is an amazing piece of art you created. Thank you for sharing it with us. I hope this leads to many more commissions for you in the not too distant future.  :)

I am so glad you guys are enjoying them! One of the elements that I find most rewarding working in illustration is to be able to bring a persons wonderful idea and building upon it to bring our eyes closer to his or her vision.

The details in your artwork are amazing. The fish carved into the stone wall on the right in Daemon Bright Eyes and the emblem on the shield in Atla are great. Thank you for sharing your work with us.

My pleasure Tolstoi! Its so great to share this with a community that I know will get a kick out of it. Those elements were both very fun to paint. and was very happy with the yellow and blue contrast (stone fish) in that area.  Here is one more commission for the goblin player just finished tonight.

Very Excellent! When I saw this, I immediately thought it was more of your great cover art for a book. Your client is getting a wonderful piece of art. :bigthumb:
