Wow, Looks like a supernova.

Hmm ..not too far from the "truth". The rose somehow represents the whole universe of existence.
The whole of our universe and other universes exists inside this rose.
( Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series and it will make some sense!)

Thanks for the "Wow"! =D
I appreciate it!

Love this... I've been scouring the internet on and off for the last few years to see what artwork people have created in relation to the Dark Tower, and this is the best image I've seen for the rose. It's perfect! Have you done any other DT inspired images? I would love to see them.

Hey! Thanks for your kind comment! =D
Appreciate it!

Except for [link] I dont think I have posted any more directly DT inspired work.
Oh ..and this quick one [link] , wich was a test of a hair-brush.
A few of the sketches in this one are inspired by the DT books [link] (3, 4 & 6).
And some of my fascination for these [link] ,might stem from the DT books ofc. =)

Hey i must apologise, i messaged you about your rose image a month ago and I just remembered the other day that I'd never seen a reply, realised I'd used my other email which i often forget to check regularly, so i missed your response!

Anyway, thanks for the links to your other images, you've got some really fantastic stuff there! Mordred looks awesome - great realisation! I'm actually just re-reading The Wastelands atm, just read the part with Shardik - again looks great, the hair and shading is so effective. As i think someone else commented, although he certainly looks intimidating, it would be great to see him look even more insane and horrifying - the parasites foaming from his mouth! Did you ever do any more on this one?

Also love the sketches, you've clearly got a fantastic eye for detail; these are some truly messed up creatures, which I'm guessing take some inspiration from descriptions of the can-toi?

Anyway, nice work! I used to enjoy doing this sort of thing but i was never this good! I'll definitely keep an eye out for more of your art, you've got a talent and should certainly be working in film/tv design with this sort of quality!

All the best!

No worries! =D

About Shardik/Mir, I dont think I will continue this one any further. Might have another go from scratch though! Maybe a scene with more action going on; him flinging worm-infested snot all around on the ka-tet!

About the sketches you are absolutely right; the main inspiration from the deformed ones comes from the can-toi.

Thanks hugely for your kind words! The talent of wich you speak of is mainly a mix of inspiration, motivation and luck, and I sometimes struggle with consistency when I let the pen down for too long. When picking it up again it usually feels like starting all over and re-learning everything again. But hopefully small portions stick everytime I/we pick it up again, wich in time should accumulate to some kind of skill. The trick (I believe) is to keep drawing and keep picking the pen up, even when inspiration or motivation fails.
