Lovely work, especially the flying swans. However I wish I could see this print in a larger size. I fear a lot of detail is lost due to the small size.

Thank you so much for your input and compliments. Sorry it took so long to get back.

I'm surprised by the ammount of feeback I got. Every other site I've posted stuff on was like casting them into the abyss, never to be heard about again.

This really one of my favorite pieces. I really loved Printmaking class in college. Its a shame its not easy to just set up a printmaking studio on one's living room, or I'd do more etching in a hearbeat.

The original story is really cool! I could tell you more about it if you're interested.

Thanks again!

I really like the angle you've used here - there's a great sense of action and movement. The bolts of light coming from her staff are very nice indeed - great work.

Art at its best.
