This is such a wonderful piece, especially with the symbology used. I love how you've also used a few different medians for effect. Great stuff :)

I love how you used the melted Crayon technique to make the dripping down affect. It adds a whole new depth and special quality to this. Good job. I love it!

Haha kind of; I actually used an old paintbrush to change the flow of the crayons as they melted.. so it's not really how melted crayons look normally :P

Melted crayon is pretty and simple. Lots of people have done it, but not many have been able to combine the effect with a good artistic thought. You have. Very well done.

Melting crayons are actually harder than I imagined though.. Haha
