Noway, that is a fantastic painting you have outdone yourself. Seriously that is the greatest painting ever done. The color and lighting is unbelievable.

Dillon Thompson said...

I have to agree with Dave. This is one of the most fantastic illustrations I have seen. The story, composition, colors, design. It is all there.

Steven Keele said...

I'd always thought that lanterns were used when digging graves at night. Now I know how it's really accomplished. What a total blast of a painting. I love the character design and the lighting. Excellent work.

Kevin, I must have been stunned the first time I saw this. Proof: I didn't leave a comment.

Everything about this painting makes it my favorite painting of yours of all time. Absolutely your best work. The lighting is stunning, composition- outstanding, character design- hilarious! You've outdone yourself. I hope you make a new favorite of mine soon.

Ken Chandler said...

Oh, and the fact that he's digging it for me... shiver. The composition practically invites the on-looker to "come in". Incredible piece!
