Great drawing, the crop is a bit unfortunate though since it confines the creature. I hope you'll change the layout when/if you do continue to work on it. I'd love to see work like this put to use in a storybook or something similar more often.

I am always horrible at determining the proper space for these sort of things, I do intend on expanding the it a lot more horizontally, Thanks a bunch for the crit. Hopefully there will be more things like this in the near future! Thanks again.

I guess it depends on the story you want to tell. You have this beautiful creature that even though it's on the ground and not flying, takes a "dignified" posture. It also looks almost as if it's focusing on a light source above it's head. So for me at least the crop of the image right above its head comes as a suprise. Caging the beast, confining it to it's position on the ground, taking away the air and space it would need to get off the ground - but the posture doesn't support that interpretation. Hope that makes any sense to you.
Again, it's a great drawing. I'm really looking forward to seeing more like this! I treasure the Conan-Book with Mark Schultz's interior drawings because there are too few books (in germany at least) that make use of enriching illustrations like Schultz's or yours.

Yes it does thanks a bunch for the feedback. Inspiring me to get back on this piece and work it!

And jeez to be put in a category even close to the bliss of Mark leaves me in a state of glee so thanks for that! :dance:

Germany?! That is amazing, is it awesome living there?

That depends on your definition of "awesome". Right now it's depressing, it's supposedly summer but the temperature rarely rises above 20C and it rains a lot. What do you need for an "awesome" place?

Jesus, well, I guess nature and pubs ;). You move there from somewhere else? You English is impeccable. I am trapped in Southern California, and slowly growing mad from blue skies and constant temperatures constantly. I am used to the volatile and unstable weather of the north east part of the USA, and miss trees and the like.

I mostly have to thank the fellas at HBO for my education. After watching all seasons of "The Wire" i even copied the mannerisms of Idris Elbas character "Stringer Bell" for a while. Just a week or so, but even the shortest period of time wouldn't have prevented me of feeling like an idiot when i noticed it myself.
Well we got trees in germany and pubs of course. But if you compare it to the US you have to downscale everything quite a bit. If you're looking for anything that qualifies as a mountain you have to go to the southern end, in the alps. The south in general has more cool stuff. They got summers with temp. up to 40C on some days (but its still all green) and winters with lots of snow and hailstones sometimes as big as golf balls. They also got more money, less unemployment and a little bit higher educational standards. But no "big citys" (downscale!) besides Munich.
Up in the north are the oceans, the little beaches, flat land and lots of wind. I learned here that wind can be a much crueler enemy of a cyclist than a mountain ever can. The north has Hamburg and Berlin of course.
I was born and raised in southern places, moved up north a few years ago and now i'm looking into possibilities to move again, out of the country maybe, but hopefully to a place less grey than Hamburg (in regards to the weather again). I miss the sun and hills. I guess if you would consider moving, you would probably prefer the south for the nature, but the north for the hints of urban life.
But why "trapped"?

Interesting sounds like the my old home, though we are fortunate up there to have plenty of mountains and trees. Its amazing to have the two extremes. haha, I can imagine the wind tossing folks about! Sounds nice though, all things considered.

Trapped in the regard I have a great job, but hate the area, and the types of people that reside in it. All things considered as well I am fortunate and happy!

Stoked to see more of your work! Thanks for the info about the area ;)
