I really appreciate seeing how tight of a drawing you start off with before you get into the really loose painting. Seems like you know exactly what you're doing from start to finish and it shows beautifully!

This is fantastic. To dwarf my esteem even more, would you mind telling us how long you think it took you- Start to finish?

I know it's kinf of a funny thought but until I zoomed in, I really thought it was a picture of King Arthur and his court in Camelot from "The Holy Grail Movie" (Monty Python's). 
Am now smiling about that. Weird. :D (Big Grin)

I swear to god, the color accuracy had me convinced this was a legitimate photo until I zoomed in and saw the kneeling character's robes. The ambience of the colors looks so real, just like the fall of dusk in real life. Knowing you did this from imagination is is amazing.
