I am so very amazed and enthralled by this work of yours! Everything about this piece is done so very well! So many gratifying textures, so much captivating detail; so much expressions and moods, the postures, the perspectives! My word, I am left silenced by such and obscure yet poetic masterpiece~!
There is something about the lighting on this that just is really calming. The person in the middle seems to be in this vast world, then you look again and he's almost trapped in a tiny room with a vivid backdrop.
