Cool, Steve, inspired by Pederneira Mine? ;-)
Size? Material?

Hi Tobi. Sorry, I should have said. It is reminiscent of Pederneira tourmalines. But it is strictly hand-drawn from my imagination!

A4 size black paper (140gsm). I used Posca pens (black, white, blue and green) and a couple of Derwent Graphik waterbased pigment painter pens.

I would buy it, it looks great. With no scale and background it gets your imagination going, almost other wordly... "Twilight of the Tourmaline Forest".
