This is very amazing! And beautiful, I love the mithology and Thanatos is my favorite God.
The expression, the colors, and the details of the background... Very good work! (I'm seeing your works are amazing too.)

This is so beautiful like Klimt.
I love the expression in the eyes .
And that shadowy plants on top.
So subtle and mysterious.
I hope to paint like that one day.
Very touching. Thank you.

Truly love this one!! Brilliant work. Love the somnolent look on the face at the left. Reminds me a bit of the work of Maxfield Parrish, but more subdued in color.

Words just can't quite sum up how amazing this is, but I'll do my best...
This is simple and elegant but still detailed and I just love those soft, earthy tones you've used. I especially like the patterned cloak. Can I ask what materials you used? It looks like a mix of wet and dry graphite or charcoal in most parts but I'm not sure.
