Interesting, is there deeper meaning in the painting? The Indian is holding a snake globe in one hand and mountains in the other. And yet he has the shadows of three conquistadors behind him.

I really like it looks like you put a lot of thought into it. Nice!

I have a little bit of the blood of that tribe running in me...... but I'm mostly European. But I feel proud with what Native American side I have :3

Very nice! I love the shading and the detail. I wonder what the things inside the crystal balls mean. :? I would definitely pick this up!

I'm honestly not sure - I just followed the brief. I'll post if they tell me when it's going on sale, though!

You sure are getting use out of those pictures. :)

Love the color contrast here, and the composition moves nicely with the smoke. The time you spent on the flames was worth it -- they really help focus attention on the shaman lady.

Interesting to see Spanish Conquistadors with a Comanche, didn't think they ever came into contact. Is the book of the same title? Who's the author? I'd be interested in reading it.

Beautiful work, as ever. The Conquistadors are solid enough to be a presence, but ethereal enough to have come from the smoke.

I assume it's Blake Driskill's, but I'm honestly not sure. I'll let you know if he tells me when/where it's on sale.
