Death on Black Wings....
Here's my latest painting based on Margaret Weis's and Tracy Hickman's classic fantasy tale, Dragons of Autumn Twilight. I know it's been forever since I last posted, and I hope this piece makes up for the delay.
Believe it or not, I only started reading those fantasy novels about a month ago. Given my work, most people would expect me to have practically my own library of this stuff. Problem is, I know most of it isn't very good. I only want to read the best stuff, and I heard the Weis/Hickman books were good (and not much else) so I took a chance. Well, it turned out well! If anyone knows of any books they'd like to recommend to me, please let me know. I'm really looking for the good stuff; books that have everything needed to be a good book: a good and believable plot, compelling and dynamic characters and a sense of discipline and restraint in storytelling.
Of course, I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on my latest piece. Don't be shy! I'm always trying to get better, and honest opinions are necessary! Thanks all!!
I've retouched the painting a bit per suggestions from some very helpful artists. Thanks everyone!!!
