I wonder a bit, there's the main focus in this picture? There is happening so much... So many lines and details. I think it would work better, if you were focusing on the part of the picture that is most important to tell the story you want to tell.
Wow. This is just incredible! (unrelated to this picture, but because I saw you are a huge LOTR fan ) My mom and her husband would love your work too, see, they're HUGE Lord of The Rings freaks.... they have the mines of mordor painted on a doorway opening, they have the giant shield with the tree (shield of gondor? I can't remember... it's been a while, so forgive me) and they had a renaissance wedding. Not to mention all the ridiculous amount of action figures and shit...oh yeah and they're major archers.... but I digress, they'd love your work. My stepdad also does really cool and amazing leather work with intricate designs pounded into them. He's done some really cool shit I think you could appreciate. If I ever manage to get some pictures, I'll share if you'd like. If not, that's cool too. Keep up the great work!
