Congratulations, the scene looks very classic. 
I was just wondering what had become of this magazine and found your cover on their web site.

Bummer! I love that it draws on the classic character Taarna... and the pose is perfect.  I really like the direction Morrison is taking the magazine and your illustration is a perfect example.  Bravo!

Holy crap. You've really captured a classic Frazetta sort of feel that TOTALLY fits with some of the old Heavy Metal covers. This is AWESOME!

YES!! So glad to see her back, and this is a fantastic piece to boot. I love the unusual shot from behind, yet she's so recognizable for all that. Great creature too.
