Wow! Very impressive! You were a much better artist then than I am now!
Wow, that's an amazing picture!
Do you think the position of the dragon in the picture was influenced by the Basic D&D picture you've reproduced in the right-hand column of your blog?
yes, great illustration!
anarchist: hmm, maybe.
I seem to recall being influenced by this http://lcart2.narod.ru/image/fantasy/boris_vallejo/op/boris_vallejo_themagnificentstudy.jpg
That is an incredibly piece of black-and-white work. I'm going to send a copy to a painter I know in the hope that it will inspire her to imitate it.
