This is a piece I started about two years ago. I posted the w.i.p. a while ago and kind of lost interest. I actually began this piece in Photoshop CS before I knew my way around Painter. I am so into Painter now that i spent the weekend pretty much repainting the entire piece using Painter X.
I am using a modified scratchboard tool and blender. I also used the FX glow for the color bloom in the background. Again I am pretty new to fantasy work, but I really enjoy it.
Hope you like it and please feel free to post all critiques and comments.
