where could I find info/ preview of it?

I can't find anything about it on Ebay, Amazon, Wikipedia, Google, Yahoo, Altavista, Dogpile.

If It's not on any of them, I've lost all other information sources.

Very creepy. But this piece is very well composed. I especially love all the detail in the branches and the colors.

creepy and a very good representation of the quote from The Brothers Grimm.
Beautiful use of colours, and the expression on the boy who knew no fear's face is absolutely perfect.
Another job well done i say.

I love all of your work dude but I can see that your anatomy skills are kind of lacking. I am not saying that I am the best or anything I am far from it but I have taken enough classes that I can kind of tell that you could really benefit from some life drawing classes. I don't want to to be offended or anything I just want to get better and improve. ^^

I've read the story...was it made into a novel? I'd like to read that. Good job, though. You really caught up the character...but what is the dead person on the far left wearing? A screened sweatshirt???
