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) Christine Martino

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" Christine Martino

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.
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.

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!!!

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 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! "

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.
