Good stuff, but I think riding a flying lizard without underwear would be a bit uncomfortable.

I think it is too Final Fantasish, nonetheless it is very good. For a power metal album it could fit pretty well.

i think it's nice and that it would fit a cheesy power metal album...

I think it would make an even better fantasy book over

thanks for the comments. The last images I've been doing in the past 6 months I've done in vertical orientation (portrait) cause I was sick of doing horizontal ones. If you go to my manga/anime site http://www.saiyan.ch, you'll see that I have TONS of wallpapers... which is why I always worked on landscape images in the past (Time's Up is one of these wallpapers)... vertical opened new avenues and another sense of depth of field too... so that's why I started making poster like images... but I will agree that most of them would fit books just as well, if not better than metal covers... what about DVDs ? after all its the right format ?

Thanks again for your comments, I'll post some more images shortly.
Chris

PS : If you go on saiyan.ch with Mozilla, excuse the menu bug ;). Lazy me, 6 months I noticed and didn't even try to fix it yet.

Yeah, this just SCREAMS Rhapsody!! :D

But I think the problem in all your work is the too artificial/computer looking human figures, and to a lesser extent the often cartoon like art.
I mean the art is great in it self of course and all :) , but for Metal Artwork (as the title suggests) I don't think it's too fitting. For book/game/anime/etc yes, for which your talent is the best suited.

That being said, this is some of your best work :)

It's absolutely gorgeous, but I get more of an impression of a cheesy sword and sorcery novel than a cheesy power metal album.
I'm absolutely in awe of the dragon, and the woman looks much less "plastic" than many of your other human figures. The lighting on her is much more natural, though that could be an effect of the softness of the moonlight. The moon itself is amazing, very epic and ethereal-looking.
Also, doing that without underwear would, indeed, be very uncomfortable.
