Nice, world needs more Hyperion cantos art.

Kinda sad that this is only art I ever saw of it (excluding book covers).

Just finished the Cantos, and started looking for fan art of the colonel. This is easily the best image I've seen so far. I noticed the symmetry of their poses, and I assume this was done for reasons other than just balancing the composition (plot reasons).

I'm reading the books right now, did a google image search to find a better Shrike image to replace the book cover version that was stuck in my head, and man you nailed it. Had to come to DeviantArt, recover my password, and log in to tell you how good this is.

Gorgeous work! The Hyperion Cantos is one of my absolute favorite fiction series and the battle between Kassad and the Lord of Blades was absolutely gripping. I love how you've portrayed it here!
