Awsome pic! I really love the imagery here. That being said you've given a generally celtic, male deity the face of an asian woman. LoL

Fantastic color work. The characters of the dog/wolves look great. All the detail in each of the elements comes out really well. The torso of the man and his exposed arm seems to flat compared to the rest of the piece. There seems to be little definition on the mid section of the body, while the rest (of the entire image) is defined and detailed. It just throws it off a little but still a great work.

I love Herne! This picture is really beautiful...the mystical, eerie mood without any hint of evil; the runes in the halo; the alsatian-ish cwn annwn (hellhounds) and Herne/Cernunnos's bright black eyes. Oddly enough, that's about my only problem with this; Herne, the Welsh god, was supposed to be very pale, perhaps even albino, while Cernunnos, the cornish (or scottish? I don't have my celtic mythology book with me) was suppose to be brown, like the forest. It was Herne's father, Arawn, who was black-haired and bright-eyed. Anyway...that's a nitpick. Gorgeous! Such a pretty god.

The dogs look like real beasts, I love that. Must admit, I'd been missing the haunting atmosphere in your later work. Now that it's back, I'm happy :)

yea, the face is rather feminine, I though it was a woman at first but soon noticed the lack of boobies...
But very nice pic, I really like the dog/wolf/creature's spirit thing, the effect looks pretty cool

Mmm...
Gorgeous.

The name caught my attention at first. I found 'Cernunnos' while doing research on different types of mythology last year and I've liked the name since.
:3 The picture is far more attention-snatching than the name, though.
Excellent job!
