Before the War - Final by bm Before the War - Final by bm
Finally this is the fifth and final version of my Before the War painting. Many improvements, a remake of the sky, color variations, unicorns eye and neck, shading and some other details are fixed.

This took 40+ hours in Adobe Photoshop using a Wacom Intuos A4. Its original size is about 5000 pixel high in 300dpi. A3+ print ready. Original concept.


Hope you like.

Sincerely
- Nicklas Forsberg a.k.a bM

awesome gallery, I couldn't help but favorite a few of your works. About this painting though, when you selected the title were you referencing the book "The Last Battle" or was it just a random title? Anyways you did a wonderful job!! ^_^

This is lovely. Especially the background and the plants in the foreground. The Unicorn looks a bit flat and the hind legs anatomy bothers me a bit....I love those mushrooms, and great colour scheme.
