I did start this as a premade background and was really liking it, so I just kept going till it became... this. :P
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…

Wonderful scene Roger, almost like a digital painting with the shadows of the subjects beautifully done.:aww:
And I also loved the lighting here, very realistic and nicely done.:heart:

It was easier on this one cause I used the original plate's lighting for once. Sometimes it's fun to not overcomplicate things haha. Thanks a lot! :hug: :D :heart:

Thank you so much!!! :D Yeah a lot of the times I don't really know what I'm doing lol. It's almost funny how sometimes things come together in the end hehe... they don't always look like I'd imagined them first but... oh well. xD

:D:D I wish it too, not sure I have the photos to make it though haha. And living in Spain again it's harder for me, was so much easier to get landscape photos in the US. :P
Thanks a lot!! Two more matte paintings coming soon... I have 15 days to start and finish both lol. xD
