I did start this as a premade background and was really liking it, so I just kept going till it became... this.
Besides, it had been a while since I had any dragons in my artworks, even if they are small. (Edit: why did I even write that? lol, I just made one *_*)
Got one of those big ideas for the next Exodus image but it needs a lot of preparation, picture taking, and digital sculpting, hopefully it will be done before Christmas lol.
Really trying to focus on light and colors lately in the latter stages, I like how natural some matte paintings look and thought mine always look way too over the top, so trying for a more... moderate approach.
Some music to accompany, really fitting the theme, as old as it is... www.youtube.com/watch?v=m267uI…
And here are some WIP progress shots as usual:
