Here you go!
So once again unfortunately I didn't really save any steps in the 'painting' stage so much, but hopefully you get the gist of it anyway.

While I think the first sketch I did was more effective as an image itself, the focus of the card needed to be on the blue drake with the red drake being almost incidental, rather than actually showcasing the battle between the two as much.
Probably about 12 hours, all in photoshop CS 4.
Final document ended up with 10 layers (I think that seems about average for these images) and working res is 6000x4600 px.

Final is up here -

My I ask: When you "paint in" over the basic composition, do you do it on separate layers over the composition and if so, how many layers? ^ ^

Do you just erase the rough colours that are outside dragon sketches once you've painted the actual dragons in?
