I like your use of white on black to create negative space and the grass. Great composition and line work. The brushes make a convincing cloudy sky, and the screentones look amazing!

If you don't mind me asking, how do you apply those screen tones?

they're self-adhesive. You cut them out with a razor blade and stick them directly on the board.

I clearly see each influence in your drawing: Otomo, Miyazaki, Shirow, Samura, Kirby, Mignola..but you fuse all these artists in an original style that everyone can says "Hey, this is Harren!". I said too many times how much I love your works, but let me do this one more time: great piece dude, great piece.

I'm kinda curious to see what you could do with a Warhammer 40K picture, like with the Imperial Guard or something. But damn, I wish I could draw like that.
