We liked your painting so much that we put it in an italian article about Neil Gaiman (freidajoe.wordpress.com)
We obviously indicated you as author of the drawing and linked to your deviant profile as well.
Just to let you know that we've appreciated your work :) (Smile)

Now THAT's a good Shadow! HE looks don't-fuck-with-me enough that his only problem in jail is to kill time :)
Doesn't look particularly like I see him but, hey, that's the point of characters not being described.
I think you also nailed his skin colour I couldn't help but imagine him pale even when I knew he isn't, stupid brain.

I find that most of the other illustrations of Shadow make him seem too thin and frail, portraying him as a pretty bishonen instead of a guy who could be a professional wrestler. They seem to overlook the fact that in the book, he's constantly referred to as "big". You, however, captured him perfectly.

He looks so solid and I love how he's holding the coin; excellent job.

This is... the BEST depiction of Shadow I've seen so far. well done, honestly. You captured the gruff nature of his character. Good job.
