Oh man this is a beautiful picture, showing a so deceitful act also with the one smiling, took me a while to figure out whats happening! Awesome storytelling picture! *-*

I didn't realize what was really happening in this until I looked a little closer. The nymph's face is just so nonchalantly happy that you would never expect to see the true meaning behind it. I immediately clicked the watch button after seeing this. Love it.

Amazing work, I really like the range of colours you have used and the "bird eye" angle to the whole scene is really cool :)

wow very nice color scheme. the contrast between the playful and joyful moods of the woman and the horrible act they're committing is great. love how the work draws from the two women down to the foot of the drowned person. awesome

Amazing narrative piece. First you see the nymphs then you see the guy's arms and legs and then you see the sword and you get what's going on. Brilliant, effective and just works.

I have one of his books on my reference shelf, did some googling reminds me of this one. You really got the feel down for what these creatures would have been like. Warm, mysterious with a dark twist.
