I like the poignancy and darkness of the quote and how you used the orange glow of the fire to highlight the main character of the story. Great work!

He looks alot like an american actor. The guy who plays Chandler's new roomate for an episode of Friends (the psycho). Great painting BTW.

EPIC. Love that, kinda makes you think about what happened around you in history on the spot where you go camping.

Like, in Tennessee, I will never go into the woods or on the old battlefields at night... too many angry spirits.

eh, was probably painted too roughly and too quickly.
It's a rather sketchy meaningless assignment piece.

The colouring and the amount of detail in this is amazing! I love the one live fella's grin, it makes the picture so surreal. Was the guy on the bottom's head taken off or something? It kind of looks like it.

Heh, do a sequel with the part where he's playing ninepins with his new 'friends'. I loved it when he took the lower jawbone off to make the 'ball' more round, heh, heh.

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.

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.
