Looking at this painting, I think of Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman series Dragon Lance Chronicles...makes me wonder what the story is about behind these Guardians...? Nice work. Enjoy the softness of the clouds (although there is a storm brewing) against the texture of the stone!
Thanks! Well, as a matter of fact, I did the cover for Dragon Lance, The annotated Legends, that was published a few years ago. The story behind "The Guardians" would be too long to tell, but let's just say it is part of a personal project that I might eventually do some day.
