It amazing how this one piece reflects so many different skills... From realism to decorative... wonderfully executed overall... I am in love with the colour pallette... and those skulls forming the mountain are so way badass! Nice=)

hehe - seems you are the first who recogniced douglas adams in my little "art descrition" - lol - and no it is not the cover of a rpg book or something, just did it for my own pleasure - --- about the border design Smile - as i am a designer by day and a painter by night, i just combined the two things and voila - that´s the result - and to be true, i really like the result - so i am glad to hear you like it too Smile - thanks!!!

Hee hee... long live Douglas Adams... Uwe, the border on this is simply fantastic. Looks like it ought to be the cover of a RPG book. It always astounds me when people come up with design work like that for borders... whenever I try it just looks like some stupid squiggles. ;p Brilliant colors too... love em! Laughing out loud

True fantasy through and through. Wonderful work and splendid detail, the bordering is a grand touch to this style of Science Fiction Art.

Great image! Excellent frame work..

Wow Uwe, you've really outdone yourself this time. I think this is one of your best pieces. The intricate detail in the relief work on that border is excellent. I also like how the entire piece has that green/yellow hue to it. The figure and dragon are very well rendered and I like those rocks that resemble skulls leading up to the castle. Fine work, as usual Uwe!

Another triumph, Uwe! your details are fantastic, the border is a beautiful touch and I gotta say those colours are quite amazing, splendid!
