it looks nice but the 'technologic' part at the top doesn't really fit with the organic theme that makes up the rest of the image.

Thank you for your comments:)
The technological part of the drawing was done to illustrate a part of the concept in the story. I wish I could tell more but I don't think the book is being published until September.

Magnificent! I love the texture you gave these knots, and how you merged fantasy-like designs with mechanical ones (it evokes steampunk; very original and surely classy :)). It's one of the most meticulously detailed, fresh, in short words - the most stunning works I've seen. Pure awesomeness!

This is really some fantastic work. The eyes at the top remind of the eye in LOTR's. Really great work.

Really nicely done and wonderful composition Knotty! Love the mythology related elements and overall feeling. Quite an original take on the bio-mech theme too! :+favlove:

Thank you kindly! I just couldn't resist leaning towards a bio-mech style of drawing, it seemed to fit the brief so well:)
.. have you had any fun with the EC yet?

You are welcome! I have started, but ran out of graphite mines and haven't made it to the art store yet, because of deadline pressure. Assuming next week, even though it's my birthday then and not only mine.. :D Anyways, will try to work on off in between. :)
