Regular is definitely better.

Sadly, though, a meh.

Great looking print but I am not familiar with the source material.

im loving it! after studying each print, i do think that the regular blue is better...for me, to much red on the chick's face of the variant, she looks vampire-ish...goth, even bloody to me.

if you dont know what a leafy sea dragon is, or about their close cousins, the weedy sea dragons, you should educate yourself. sadly, they are at many public aquariums, and are simply replaced (at great cost to the aquarium...ive heard a single one can fetch thousands of dollars) whenever one dies in the tank. they are also kept in many home aquariums, but this should be entirely banned until we can properly aquaculture these unique creatures.

however, youtube can provide excellent footage of them and wonderful photos of the animals abound online. not true sea horses or pipe-fish, but distant relatives, they are honestly some of the most amazingly beautiful creatures we have discovered in our seas, perfectly camouflaged for their southeastern australian habitat, they move through the water with an un-paralleled grace, often just letting the currents carry them wherever the water flows...

...are we done with game of thrones in here yet? :roll: :P

where oh where are Cooper's copies of "the art of war"??? did he sell them already? does he plan to? did he even get any copies for himself from that posters-meet-classic-books show so long ago?

Agreed. Too much focus can be drawn to this chick and all her damn hair. Still not bad. The detail looks great.

According to Facebook, "soon" but we all know what that means.

Yeah it means my focus is on making art rather than selling it ;)
In all seriousness though I haven't had a break in over 2 years from booked jobs, (a break being more than 2 days in a row, and even that is rare...) being a one man machine it isn't easy for me all the time to organize drops when doing so takes a few days out of my timeline. That being said I do have some drops coming 'soon' and Art of War is one of them, just stay tuned to the group.
Even then I'm sure people will complain.

Unbowed, unbent, unbroken.
Because it's the print we deserve, but not the one we need right now. So we'll hunt it.

Let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

Love it.

Really hope we get some info on these soon, I barely managed to get my banners when Rhys resold the remainders so I want to get in early on these. The Hound and The Red Viper were two I was very interested in :drool:
