Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

Thank you, always great to read that people like my stuff :)

What exactly would you be using my image for - as an icon, or something else? I'm interested, but I'd like to know what you're going to do with it before I say yes or no.

Fantastic deviation. You certainly have a talent right there. I love the Mabinogion, being Welsh.. I was kind of brought up on them lol You have done a fine job of capturing Blodeuwedd's essence here.

"You are never to show your face to the light of day, rather you shall fear other birds; they will be hostile to you, and it will be their nature to maul and molest you wherever they find you. You will not lose your name but always be called Blodeuwedd."
