Beautiful work, love the sea nymphs. You make the viewer feel the pity these beautiful creatures have for the poor, hurt young man...please keep it up, look forward to your next piece.

I love the sea nymphs! I love the way that, instead of making them IN the water, you made them OF the water! Totally unique and i'm jealous of your genius.

Also love the way you made all the feathers in Icarus' wings different sizes, because in the myth he and his Father made them out of the feathers of birds they trapped from their tower or something.....Something along those lines.

Totallt gorgeous peice of art all over.
