Hmm... This one was unintentional.

Started out as the background for a very different idea I had. But the more I worked on it, the more screwed up it got, to the point where it didn't even closely resemble the picture I had in my head.

Figured that within this pic, the original concept was unsalvageable, so I didn't bother trying to go back to it. Just kept going with this as it was. I figure the end result isn't too bad, even though it's not at all what I originally had in mind. :p

So I'm posting this, and I'll hopefully be able to do the original idea I had some other day after a fresh new start. It just wasn't meant to be this time around.

Anyway, I know I've recently done a pic with foreground bushes and vines, and I don't usually like being so repetitive. But they seemed right here, so I'm leaving them in.

Start to finish in Photoshop, no refs. This took several hours, partly because I was trying to force it to be something it wasn't. ^^;

Edit: Moved this out from scraps to my regular gallery due to a print request. :p
