This piece is stunning. I love the variety within it, and all the tiny details you added that create the overall atmosphere of the piece.

The illusion here of breaking away intrigues me. I love how you've made the black currents smooth, almost like silk, contrast to the blotchy, dilapidated background. It gives a feeling that while the foreground is in tumult, the background has already experienced the dissolving chaos and broken away.

But like I said, the little details are what caught my eye from the start. It's hard to stop looking at this piece once you've seen it, whether the viewer has an appreciation for art of this type or begins to wonder about the dark side in all of us. It's intensely thought-provoking and beautiful, and I congratulate you on such a wonderful work!

Reminds me of Egypt during the seventh plague. Well done, Maestro!

Yeah! It's like lightning meets fire meets Egyptian statue (the face in the center definitely looks Egyptian without the headdress =)) meets charcoal beauty!

I would have this as a wall piece. I love this so much. It has all those elements, some ancient feeling (not a bad thing at all) but with a cleverly modern touch. It really gets my history/art juices pumping. So much energy. in this piece.

Much appreciated!

Do you sell royalty-free licenses for use as part of a book cover? I design book covers for several SF authors (and others) and would, of course, provide proper attribution.

If you sell on one of the royalty-free stock repositories, please let me know which ones and your username.
