An Illustration that I've slowly been working on during my lunch breaks. I don't normally take my time quite this much, but it was really enjoyable!

This is available as a hand signed and numbered, limited edition print run in my Etsy shop; [link]

Hello my fellow art buddy! I wanted to give a random comment to a talented artist and your work is what I stumbled across. The amount of detail in your work is staggering. Whether it's traditional, digital, full of color or monochrome, you just can't help but be sucked into all the details you pump into each picture. There's almost a dreamlike quality to how you color and shade things--it's very neat and manages to evoke some real emotions from the viewers. You definitely have talent, and it's great to see the internet has taken notice of you and you're able to reach and inspire so many people. Thanks for sharing your gifts with the world, and making it a little more colorful in the process. Take care and keep on rockin' my fellow art buddy!

This reminds me so much of the work of Yoaan Lossel. who does charcoal and gold leaf paintings in tradiitonal media. I wonder if you're inspired by her work here? Regardless i think the voice of your own expertise shows through in this digital masterpeice. Very Beautiful
