Well, since Marley is one of my favorite Epilogue artists and Gawain is my favorite knight (I wrote my undergrad thesis on him, actually) and YOUR gallery link is at the top of my "favorites" list. . . well, it's icing on the cake that this is FABULOUS work, James! Smile

Yeah, I know this is supposed to be a portrait of Marley, but your green, severed head steals the show. I love it (and I recognized it as you even in the thumbnail). Rock on Smile

I simply love your work but there´s something I must say...there is someone stealing your work. I guess you should know but you probably know it already.

She had published a lot of your works saying she did it! I don´t think this is fair! You did it!

Hi Vicki, it's those watercolour pencils again if you wet them at the end you get a more intense colour, hence using white for the shiny bits of metal! thank you for the kind words!

Thank you, Sean! would you believe the sword was based on a 12" steel measuring rule!

Actually, Piotr, that mirthful severed green head is me! I guess I drew the short straw when casting this one! heh heh! Thank you!
