Hehe. It was a pretty cool dream--scary at the time, but in retrospect kind of awesome. (The angel in the dream looked almost exactly like that.) And wow, it's amazing that you created that texture with paint!
As usual, your design sense is impeccable. The composition is very impressive too: each of these forgotten spirits seems to have a unique personality. They make me think of Sam Kieth's "Isz" creatures. [link]
the wood is alright. i really like the texture, and with wet media you can get some really cool effects. but on this one i covered up the wood texture with multiple background layers that didn't work out. (the texture you see is actually vertical brush strokes) i do not like the texture of canvass at all, so wood is a great alternative.
i love the maxx! i have only seen the cartoon, i really should read the comic! thank you!
