The Dark Tower by HitokiriSakura2012 The Dark Tower by HitokiriSakura2012
So this is Roland from Stephen King's The Dark Tower. It isn't really a style I am used to doing. I did this as a present for my husband, who is obsessed with those novels. I had a lot of fun with this one :)

Good morning! 

I found your picture and used it for podcast cover art. You can see what I'm using it for over at discordia19.com/main/the-beam-….
I thought it was just fantastic and fit so very well with what we had in mind, but if there are issues with our use of it, please let me know and we'll do something else. 

Thanks!

Hahaha! that is super cool! You musta swelled with pride! I love it when someone asks what I copied my drawing from and I can reply that I made it up. I used to not be able to do that so its quite exciting for me! Does your husband draw at all?

^_____^ I know, it's a cool feeling! Actually, he does :) but for some reason, he doesnt have a deviant art account...he hasn't focused on his skills in a long time, even though i keep encouraging him to do so! He always looks at my art and says, i can't do that, and I'm like, YES YOU CAN!! :P Maybe one day I'll convince him...

Hey thanks! I'm glad it turned out acceptable- I'm not one to 'free paint' and that's pretty much what I did here :) Still have a long way to go but I'm pretty happy with the results :)

And yes I too freaking love the Dark Tower, though the last three books weren't all that good in my humble opinion =<
