Amazing concept with the soft lines on the hound to make it seem more spectral (provided that was your goal, well done!) and the hard crisp lines on the character.. a perfect match up to make a great piece. Personally I prefer simply works like this, plain background. ADD makes it hard to concentrate on what I'm lookin at, but this is really something to be proud of! Great job!
this is my fav of your series. i love how dark you made the character, but i'm still able to see the detail. it's very cool that the creature looks like he might vanish into the air. very cool and creepy. the rider makes me think he's a messenger from death or something...fantastic!
