Excellent color contrast. Subtle but effective.

I'm glad! I thought it was kind of blotchy. :(

Well, I like that it has that ethereal stained glass quality and that kind of effect never comes off well if the colors are too brilliant.

Huh. Never looked at it that way.

Well, in my experience, even if you are looking at a stained glass window from the inside on the sunniest of days there's still a muted quality to it. I mean, the end result is filtered natural light... In a lot of art I see that tries to replicate the stained glass effect, the artists tend to go too bright/brilliant with the color and it just doesn't capture the mood in the same way. You, on the other hand, whether intentionally or not, have and I think it's wonderful.

Wow! This is even better!
Will you do a series on runes? I'd subscribe!

Mind you tell me what type of font you used for thebottom line?

Whoops, forgot the font credits! It's "Diogenes", by Apostrophic Labs on Dafont.com, link here: [link] and it's the same font used for the upper line.

I'm not sure if I'll do a series or not, yet. I've considered it, but it's more likely I'll end up doing a host of rune-related drawings. I know I've been playing around with something that has Raidho, and Thurisaz was part of the centrepiece of "The Wheels of Hrothvitnir's Whelps".

Thank you very much! I'd never guesses it's a Greek-inspired font, but of course the capitals can not be mistaken.

I understand. Starting on a series also sets some constraint on you, it's always unsatisfying to finish half-way...

I'm sure whatever you does involving runes will be worth watching!

Thank you! I'm glad you like it! The lighting was an absolute nightmare. Not happy with some of the blotching from contrast.
