Twrch - Thanks very much! :)

Stealth Pharaoh - I don't know either--hehe, maybe I should've painted a giant robot terrorizing the background, or something. ;) Glad you like it, though!

lynyrd - Thanks!

Philipstraub - Thanks very much--I saw your art on Epilogue recently, by the way--awesome stuff.

As soon as I saw Socar had another posting I clicked on the link. What can I say ? I am, as always when viewing your work, enchanted by the detail you place in your piece. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

My critique would be that I find you choice of tone for the sky a bit harsh. It distracts from the rest of the piece. I think softing it would help or at the very least appease me :)

Your style is beautifull, and the final result very good (as your other works)

Kel Solaar - Thank you very much! Glad you like it!

JOSHUAtheJAME - Thanks! :D

g3n - Thanks to you, too!

Zukum - Thank you! About the blue in the sky, it was made a little too bright in order to compensate for the dulling that will occur when it's printed. I agree, though, it DOES look a bit harsh onscreen.

Enchanting!

just a detail : the crow should be much bigger than the squirrel, at least in real life...:)

five stars from me :thumbsup:
