    Thanks, it's good to hear people like it. I did give some sweat on it

    Nearly finished, got to finish up the top right map and get some fresh mind to figure out whether I need to add something else. Still some dots here and there as well.
    Any idea welcome, of course

    This is really excellent Dain. The only thing I wondered about when I looked at it was if it might pop a little more if the border was darker. If it was me I think I would create a copy and grab my charcoal pencil and test out the idea. I wouldn't risk it on the original until I was sure I liked the outcome. As it is I think this will be a hard one to beat.

    Thanks for the advice, didn't think about it.
    Now that you're telling me, it looks obvious

    Wow...a really stunning piece of art! The hatching and inking is really masterfully done. Plus, the fact that it is from the world of Midnight earns it double bonus points. The Sarcosan imagery is all very cool.

    Just to stick my oar in the water - you've done a beautiful work. My immediate reaction seeing your latest wip is appreciation. I like it. I admit, I too am stuck on hatching marks. And, you are right to note it is inexpensive therapy :-)
    Regards, Gary

    This has turned out quite nicely, love the way you've integrated the border.

    looks fantastic Dain, great job as usual. As others have said, wonderful hatching, but also loving the whole composition, 3 levels of map
