Re: Dragon's Time Cover Art

That's what I thought about the roofs. I've been collecting references on Viking architecture for when I attempt some pern buildings. Many of the Viking structures have steep pitched roofs.

Re: Ian tribute bust.

Thanks Hans. I did this pretty quickly. If I had better pictures I could put more detail in it. If nobody minds, mabey I could use his likeness when I try to model a harper character.
