Thank you!
I liked very much Sonata when I was younger but stopped after. However since a friend suggested me that song, I'm again really fond of them (:

Très excellent!

It reminds me of a book by Gillian Bradshaw, 'The Wolf Within' - a romantic tale of a knight and werewolf set in early medieval Bretagne.
I guess you'd like it ;)

Isn't the right title "The wolf hunt"?

I don't know. I have a German translation that gives The Wof Within as the original title, but it is rather old. Maybe they changed it?

Just checked it on amazon. The Wolf Hunt it is!

Une illustration terriblement évocatrice, mêlant admirablement grâce et maîtrise technique. L'entrelacs des branches et des troncs, qui se fond dans la végétation au pied des arbres, est évidemment particulièrement réussi (et c'est une bonne nouvelle d'apprendre -- puis de constater -- que les illustrations à venir seront dans la même veine), le ciel, aussi réduit qu'il soit, est splendide, mais ce sont vraiment les deux personnages principaux, d'une exécution remarquable, qui finissent par retenir l'attention. Homme et bête capturés dans un instant de communion fragile, l'attitude du guerrier à terre le montrant résigné à son sort mais à la recherche d'un dernier geste de réconfort, tandis que la posture du loup révèle la tension du conflit entre son instinct féral et une curiosité mêlée de respect. Poignant !

I'm not a big fan of the last albums of Sonata Arctica (I prefer older ones) but I must admit this song is awesome c:

I really like this!  The woodcut style is great and it really fits a sort of fairy-tale image; I've been teaching fairy tales in my German class for the last few days and I wish that I could more readily find art of this quality to go along with the stories!

It makes me want to illustrate more fairytales (which could be useful if I attempt to present my works to publishing house...)

I really like the way you've drawn the wolf. The fur look very natural, and the eye and mouth show that this is not a tame dog he's dealing with. The background is wonderful (as always in your drawings), I especially like looking at all the branches of the trees and how they criss-cross very naturally!

I like how it looks like an old woodcut. There are so many great details, like in the trees and with the ferns. The man and the canine are very well done too! Also I very much like the contrast between the lower parts and the beautiful sky. The dogs looking down at them and the track leading down to the main scene are interesting. This is a great illustration.
