I thought about this today; we worked with this story as an allegory for intuition in one of the groups I cofacilitate.

I swear, you've got a picture for every one of my favorite childhood stories. XD They're all amazing! I love how you balance detail and realism with a sort of surrealism. It's perfect for this sort of piece.

Aw thank you. I like the detail / surrealism combo I've got going, it's working for me these days, anyway.

Lovely piece of work :) The colors are amazing and show off the difference in the light qualities fantastically. Not only is the color amazing, but the detailed line work, pointillism and the swirls in the background are stunning! It's nice that you can see the detail of the swirls but they're not overwhelming :)

Thank you very much. The light in this one was really challenging, but at the end, I think I pulled off something that I didn't know I could pull off with pencils, fineliners and metallic paint at the beginning.

But I'm going to take a break before I can try something like it again!

I applaud this piece. I can totally appreciate what a challenge it is to deal with lighting schemes, and especially with ink! It also has a very haunting feel to it--and the skull lamp is great!
