Hi. I recently saw this piece while I was combing through dA looking for examples of artistic styles that would be appropriate for illustrations in a children's book I'm doing. Well, the publisher LOVES the examples I showed and I landed the deal!
Now we're hoping to find our illustrator here on dA, so we've created a competition to find him or her. I thought it was only fair to let you know about the competition, in case you're interested, since yours was one of the images I collected to show them. I didn't end up showing this one, because the content was a bit too dark to represent what I was pitching, but the style ROCKS and I'd love to see how it would apply to my project.
If you ARE interested, then please check out the competition details in the journal entry on my page, and if not, I would really appreciate it if you could help to spread the word to others. I'd love to be able to tell the world that I found my collaborator here on dA.
