Brilliant! Really amazing, although I would have seen this more like an Asian brush style. I think the signature block may lend itself to that impression as well. Love the winding trunk and fabulous textures and leaves and all that rich stuff.

Thanks! Yes D Akey you are right about the Asian look. Rowland Hilder's original did not have that look at all, I developed it from that. And yes the signature block. It seemed like a good idea at the time but now I'm not sure what I think about using it. Oh well! :p

G'day Albert and thanks!

Love this, and I also thought of Asian brush style when I saw it. Beautiful grayscale, and I like the signature block as well.
