i chose this picture due to the meaning it conveys, to me it shows two opposites trying to connect with each other. In my story one hand would represent the lifeless and the other would represent the living.

I have been inspired by different artists that draw magical worlds, etc, like Tolkien, Brian Froud, and others. I had been at home with the flu, when I started this picture, and it took me two weeks to finish it, all in pen & Ink. I'm very proud of this piece. I call it Atlantis, because its how I imagined it to be rising out of the sea, also the rock it sits on, was a large stone I found on a beach, pity I don't still have it. The picture however, sits in my old art file.
