Let the unwary traveler beware.  Here are wonders beyond your ken, and dangers beyond your mortal strength.

It's like an album cover to me, but who could ever make music so amazing? No music I've ever heard except maybe Wintersun (sweetly subjective I guess!) :D

why so few contrasts? This piece contains so much details, but it's great indeed.

Stunning, as always! :) It's interesting how I see pieces of art and such that relate to stuff I'm going through in my life. In this instance, the mention of a crossroads keeps coming up. Interesting indeed. :)

What's the story behind this one, Steph? It's really, really beautiful. ... Think I may have to scrape some pennies together and find some more wall space.

Well, there's a blues legend, that if you take your guitar to a crossroads at midnight, a stranger will be there. And if you let him tune it for you and give it back, you'll be magically gifted with musical skill, in a Faustian kind of deal with the devil.

Anyway, it's not that specifically, but that was the story rattling around in my head when I came up with this.

The detail shots in particular are stunning! A stare-for-hours painting. Wonderful.

Is that white gel marker on some of the figures? I love the effect.

Is there any white gel marker that'll survive its first marking on watercolour? I like them too, but not when I have to buy one gel marker per painting... they always clog up beyond repair.

If you scroll down a little on this page, about midway through the post you can see the gel pens I like. They seem to work pretty well for multiple paintings for me:

That's so beautiful! Did you have a specific story in mind when you created it, or were you simply thinking of the archetypal 'strange things happen at crossroads' idea? I really want to know who that fiddler is, and what kind of Happening he's fiddling up!
