I’ve always loved the fantasy paintings by Louis Royo. This image was inspired by one of his images.

And yep… I made that headpiece. It’s actually made from cardboard.

    Ok, I saw the thumb of this image and thougth: “Louis Royo!”
    I’m not kidding! I had only seen the thumb, not your text yet. So, I’d say, a very successful homage to this great artist.

  • Thanks Peter
