The knight is about to enter the Gate of Initiation. The Guardian of the Gate is waiting for him down the stairs.The knight will have to fight the Guardian,his own fear and weakness during years ,he will have to fight against himself and to tame his solitude to deserve the Knowledge and Omniscience of The Great Goddess.He's leaving human love in search for the divine Love.

My inspiration comes first from litterature and poetry(Poe,Lovecraft,Baudelaire,Machen,C .Ashton Smith,Rimbaud,BYron,Shelley,Lord Dunsany...)then from paleontologie and zoologie from archeologie.In art I prefer the prerafaelites and tthe romantic painters like Delacroix, Friedrich or Géricault.Thank you for your comment.Hervé

Your pictures are all so rich in color and detail, they all merit comment. They have so many interesting items in the background. With the characters, I get the feeling of quiet yet deep emotion.

What size are the actual paintings?

The detail in your work is exceptional. Everything seems to "fit together" so very well, it takes my breath. I envy your skill and your imagination.
