(I'm still reading the second book, Enemy Of God... Who's this guy? Derfel? He doesn't have a Star in his shield?)

Nice work, and awesome book serie!!! It's Arthur as you never read about, kinda "storic" one, absolutely not "fantasy" as the usual novels.

Oh my god! it's you!!!!!
i had seen your cover for the ENEMY OF GOD and freaked when i realized the star was from Derfel's shield.
your Merlin is seriously one of the best i've ever seen, and i'm a huge Arthur buff.

Great work!... and i feel like a geek...

Cool! I'm amazed that this is a king Arthur cover but the backdrop is far from English - but seems to be more inspired by the landscape of Turkey (mountainous).

You've got a nice contrast going on. The only thing I'd say is the snow near the Elder's feet could be tightened up a little. Otherwise excellent.

Is it me, or does putting a heroic character into a snowy area with like snow gear on top of armor make the whole thing alot more epic and mythical?

Cus I think so.
