Btw if your looking for another good fantasy series, read the Sara Douglass's Wayfarer's Redemption series. (also I'd love to see any artwork from that series drawn by you)

2 love your taste in both books and characters. Achmed is awesome, lol, and I love your depictions of him.

Let's just leave it at "your art is jaw dropping as is your taste" 2

THE ASSASSIN KING COMES OUT DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY. About time too! *humphs* I'm re reading the series for the umpteenth time again and I still get little warm fuzzies inside. ^^ heehee! I love these books and your pictures are wonderful! They give me more fuzzies! Good job!

I just have to finally post a comment since I've been looking at these amazing images of Achmed without saying a word (mainly because my jaw is on the floor along with a puddle of drool). Achmed is my all-time favorite character, I have even used him in a college essay, and I get all happy when I see your representation of him. It's pretty much dead one with what I have in my mind of him. Total awesomeness on your part for being able to put him on paper!!! Keep up the outstanding work 'cause I know I'll keep checking in to gaze at Achmed. ^.^

I love all of your work! You do a good job at capturing Achmed, and I don't think that is easy to do seeing as his character is so complex. I get the feeling that Ms. Haydon has a lot about him that we don't know yet. 2 Achmed and Rhapsody are meant to be. Ashe may be in her life now, but Achmed will always be there, waiting for Rhaps to turn to him. 2

Hi Christine - I just put a few comments on your work "plans of power" before i saw all of your other lovely work - i really do appreciate your treatment of Achmed, just not so much in that piece, but you do seem to adore him as much as i do. Thanks for giving Elfwood your view of Haydon's world, as so few people do...you're wonderful!

Your artwork is amazing you captured the characters so perfectly each time i saw your art my jaw literally dropped! Achmed is one of my favorite characters in the books and i love how you have captured every essence of him and put it in your art! Keep up the good work!!!1

nice art, I can’t believe no one has ever drawn anything from the symphony of ages before those are good books. I liked the coin one best.

everytime I view your art i want to read the books again 2

:-) Christine Martino replies: "You know something? I think that’s the best compliment I’ve gotten for my Symphony of Ages artwork. Not that I don’t enjoy compliments on my technique or skill, but to hear that my artwork (albeit, very, very OLD art!) triggered a sense of nostalgia and memory for the books gives me a nice little warm feeling inside, hahaha. I’m glad my work reminds you of good times reading the series! 2"

I love your art, I truly do...however, I’ve noticed you never do pictures of Jo. I think that’s rather sad because even though she’s dead, she was a big part of the story, and far too often forgotten.
