Cheers, I love getting feedback from gamers that the art may have helped enhance a games moment and flesh out a setting or encounter, I did and still do get a lot out of art work for my D&D campaign, when we get the time to play that is.
I'm kinda dumbfounded that not a single comment so far, (unless I'm blind, which is all well possible. XD) hasn't quoted a particular line from a... shining... thing.
Looks really wicked mate. I love the little details as well, like the soldiers further in the background racing to stop the barbarian, I'm guessing? Those sort of things can tell a great little story on their own, which I'm finding a lot in your works.
