Do you mind if I edit it for a banner (for a DT-fanworks community I'm setting up on LJ)? I'll credit.

Isn't that the Tower of Babel? :o

In any case this is bitchin', especially that background. Most pictures of the Tower don't quite capture the magnitude of the thing (which...is pretty much canon but shut up), which I also like very much.

My criticism is the field of roses looks very off. It might be stylized, but, eh, still draws the eye away from the rest of the awesome piece.

Yes, it shows just what the nexus of all existence stands for...With its Dark ominous power, and the roses surrounding it to give it a show of some good to it.

i love your version.
i hated most of the end of the series after i was done. everything seemed to get down played at the end. mind you, i don't hate what other people hate about the end. some parts are perfect (like what happens to roland).
but, i love your tower better than the books.
youre a wonderful artist

Man, this is not how you or anyone else imagined The Dark Tower. This IS The Dark Tower. They should print all 7 tomes again and make this picture the cover.

There is just everything, the roses the blink inside the roses watching Roland like eyes as he walked towards The Tower, the bird swarm, the sundown, even the pennants all over The Tower, the Tower's spiral form.

The only thing i miss is the balcony with the Red King on it. But that's a small detail not worth discussing in light of a masterpiece like this.

Long talk short meaning, this is marvelous.

I have a request to you. Would You please make a picture of Roland traveling through the desert chasing Martyn or Merlin or how ever ?

I've tried it a few times but it all looks like crap.

Hmmm.... could be. Te balcony was somewhere near the entrance and the entrance isn't on this side. I didn't think about that :D
