I have not started a work such as this, but I like the idea.  The metalwork will be much better in the new version.

It's funny to see this kind of metal bars in a medieval landscape, I love the idea. These metal structures remind me of the photo of workers having lunch atop a skycraper in NY https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunch_atop_a_Skyscraper

My grandmother was a Rosie the Riveter during WW!! and sewed leather seat covers for P-38 lightnings and P-51 Mustangs---the two best planes of the war. I have always been interested in riveted steel. Strange how stories on the home front end up in my Medieval works. I love your work

A very interesting work! There are two cities, the one at the left looks more peaceful, less fortified than the other at the right. Why?! The heavy construction support of iron bars under the rock/the castle on the right is really strange. What has happened here? Did some of the supporting rock simply fall down? How did the citizens manage to build the iron supporters before it all came down? What does the black hole in the middle of it all mean? Here are really a lot of mysterious events to think about! You have indeed created a riddle here!!

I like your "sketchy" style of expression in this work, it gives the drawing a character of authenticity , as if you where on the spot reporting what you saw there in a sketch.

Thanks!! You are right I was in a mysterious mood the day I drew it. Maybe the ironwork was erected by the Giants who strode the mountains (such as Ba'al?)


I too like to have a sketchy style now and again. Sometimes my work looks even better that way.

Looks amazing, Christopher! I really like the dark patch near the middle, the contrast. It‘s a wonderful piece.
