This is my third 'bigger' piece.
I was in kinda "dark" mood so i wanted to paint something with strong, dark atmosphere.
No ref, inspired by John Howe. (looked up to some of his works to gain idea of how to paint textures and such)
Painted in April 2004 in Photoshop 7 with Genius Wizardpen tablet. Took me a lot of time, about 30 hours i think...
