it's wonderful... since it's traditional, I assume acrylic or oils... beautiful handleing of materials, composition, etc. Your lightening and volcanco is especially well realized. I really like the way you painted the skin and clothing. I gave you a little less on the originality, because I assumed that this was an established character, based upon your other samples. I'f I'm incorrect please correct me. If I was painting this myself, I might have brought a little of the ogance lighting form the volcano onto the central figure. Doing this might have added more dimensionality... or maybe not. Either way, superb!
What do you think?
