That has to be one of the most beautiful backgrounds I have ever seen. THe strong shape and texture of the mountains, the soft cloud, the texture of the earth and grass.... amazing!

The background in this is utterly incredible, you've created such a real looking world, full of life and air and textures that are so believable it almost feels like I'm there. Fantastic!

I love the colours and the composition.
The picture reminds me somehow of Watership Down.

By first view I guessed the text is Gaelic and I was right: Scottish Gaelic (the Anthem of Scottland). *sigh*
I really have to pay Ireland and Britannia an other visit.

"2 more days, my brother, and the ring'll be ours !"

Maaan... if now even rabbits are looking for it... Where is Rayman ?! He's got to do something (I bet that latter is already using a half-ring, which explains why part of his body's missing).

Beautiful drawing, by the way (=
