Hm. Somehow it looks like the "Eagles flying rescue mission to Mount Doom" theme from the Lord of the Rings movies. Only that the mountain is much prettier and the birds are white. I hope the comparison doesn't offend you someway. ^^

Awesome work, truly.

It sure is- and guess what the book has been green lite in the format I've been fighting for- it will be almost 17 by 10 inches/landscape format. There should be at least 10 illustrations never before seen by the public! Stay tuned

This seems almost dark and creepy, but the one point of light illuminates it enough that some would still go there. Kindof like fear and the overcoming it - there's always hope to overcome a fear, but it might be hard to see at first. Brilliant

I like the insertion of symbols of fear such as the moon that symbolizes night.

The atmosphere of this image is astoundingly magical and so very ideal for an illustrated story-book, or a cover. I particularly love the color tones and the lighting effects, besides the excellent compositional makeup of it.
