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

That top one especially looks excellent

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

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.
