This is the most giant piece of digital art I have done to date: sized for printing at 48"x24" and 300 dpi. Ouch! Saving took a couple of minutes.

Done for :icondreamspirit: of two of her characters, the plan for this is for it to be printed on vinyl and mounted in a backlit frame so that it will appear to be real stained glass -- I believe she also has plans to add dimensional leading, which should further the illusion. I am quite pleased with the results here! Not only is it the largest digital piece I've worked on, it's also the most true to glass as far as types and textures.

Edit: :o DD? Thanks very much! I will respond to comments when I get off from work this evening!

Every time I start to QQ about the materials for how much this will end up costing, I come back to this image and just sit and stare at it and go "but I'll have it on my wall for the rest of my life. It is SO worth it."

Thank you, once again, for everything, and for being my friend. <3

And I still say you are delirious to think so, but I suppose it's okay for you be more than a little silly. ;) <3

This is wonderful. I think it looks perhaps a little kitschy, but the colours and proportion are wonderful, and the downright size of the thing just astounds me. I'm sure that your friend is super pleased with this! :D

Also, congrats on the DD. :clap:

I think she danced around in glee for days. I'd love to see her face when she gets the vinyl print of it, but she's too far away, darn it!

Thank you. :D

She is a werewolf with a very long story that maybe someday *Dreamspirit will share with everyone. :) Thanks!
