This is a FANTASTIC and amazingly detailed approach to H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamland Cycle. The amount of detail in the carving is mindblowing. To make this out of a wooden tablet is a great effort and no small feat. But you have succeeded in such a stunning way that the entire effect is seamless and seems easy, natural, and stunning.

Admittedly, when I first saw it, I thought it was something inspired by "Adventure Time" as some of the creatures look like that. But I was overjoyed when I read that it was a "Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath" piece as I am a Lovecraft fan (as you may notice from the people I watch, the things I comment and favorite on, and what is in my gallery).

All I can say is that this is one of the most stunning pieces of artwork I have ever seen.

This is my first critique so bear with me 😊

This is incredibly detailed and beautiful. I really love the flow and the animation of your little critters. I especially like the little white face creature hovering by the bonsai tree; he seems to have a lot of expression in his little face.

Anyone can see the painstaking detail you put into this.

The only somewhat negative thing I could think to say is maybe add a larger main focus item because there is so many lovely things to look at not one thing immediately draws my eye.

Impressive work,
Eliza

I don't know where to start since there's so much going on in this piece. Despite there being so much detail to it I don't feel like it's cluttered, instead it's like I'm watching a story unfold.
The different colored wood helps to create this world, giving it depth and making each character seem more unique!

I love the amount of detail in the piece, and the style is something reminiscent of Adventure Time, though not quite. Awesome, awesome work!!!
