This painting is a collab I did with Aaron Sikstrom aka :iconseethrou:

He did the lineart, I colored it

His original drawing can be seen in his gallery here [link] :)

You can see the painting process here : [link];page=1

It is the most time consuming painting I have EVER done! I spent 142 hours on it, I lost the file 3 times and I have finally found the motivation to finish it today because it was just making me nervous and feeling guilty because I had planned to finish it ages ago. Now it's done!!! Wheee!! (I'm very very sorry for the delay Aaron :( )

I hope you'll like it :) (and I know it's not realistic, the anatomy, lighting, water, skin, plants, etc... are full of "artistic freedom")

Some details : [link]

Now I'm feeling much better and I can work faster :)

As a pretty strictly traditional artist, i've made some snobbish remarks about the validity of digital artwork - you defy any negative thing i could have ever said. Such rich colours, undoubted skill and effort, not just a "fill colour" kind of thing. Everything i've seen of yours is nothing short of amazing. You're an inspiration.

142 h! même en faisant un calcule de tête j'ai un peu de mal à réaliser ;)

c'est horrible de s'engager et de perdre la motivation en cours de route, se remettre sur un boulot alors que tu as perdu le goût de le faire (surtout quand le dessin n'est pas de toi)--> GG

respect et félicitation! En tout cas, cette illustration est bien différente des autres, c'est un autre pâte!
