This is positively stunning work. :3 You are a very talented artist.

I was wondering if I might ask your permission to use this image (with all due credit attributed to you, naturally) in a short story I'm publishing to my blog. I'm writing a myth about the Akkadian deity Pazuzu, and this matches His appearance and "terrifying radiance" very well. If you're not comfortable giving me permission to use this image, I completely understand and will respect your wishes.

Again, this is phenomenal work. :heart:
