From The Black Cauldron, second in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain...

When the party is attacked by the Huntsmen of Annuvin, Adaon is mortally wounded. His last act is to entrust Taran with his precious brooch, a magic talisman destined to force Taran to a crucial choice.

Wow... it looks so real! Especially Adeon's face. I can almost see it moving. And the expressions are wonderful too; believable, and beautiful. What a great piece!

You portrayed Adaon really well, but in my opinion Taran looks a bit like a girl. Otherwise great pic!!

The point of view is great in this. Taran looks like he’s really grieving (though there’s something just a big funny with his expression... not sure what tho... maybe it’s just me.) Adaon is great2

Lovely job!

You are one amazingly good artist.You might want to read The Green Angel Tower books by Tad Williams for inspiration.

Perfect expression. I teared up, and I haven’t even read the books!

Wow, this is amazing. I almost think that I can see them breathing, no joke.

It’s a pity they didn’t do a live action film adaptation of the Chronicles in the nineties, when Jason Carter (Marcus Cole on Babylon 5) would have been the right age to play Adaon.
