Fortress fire by Tapwing Fortress fire by Tapwing
I just resently discovered  :iconrossdraws:'s paint videos and boy are they motivating.
For me anyway, he's definitely got the most energetic process videos I've ever seen.

What's that have to do with this though? Well one trick he uses now-and-then is dropping a photo under the sketch to kickstart his palette. I decided to give it a go with this picture and found it worked quite well. (I started with cake photo, which got me playing with oranges and blues)

There's not a single pixel left of the photo in the final painting but, it helped me shave off a couple of hours experimenting with colours trying to find something that worked.

Sometimes all you need is a little boost to kickstart your painting.

I'm definitely looking this guy up, this doesn't look like a simple experimenting piece of artwork! Love 
This makes me think of the Ninetailed Fox from Naruto, and that fire around it is blended so well!

Heheh, that's pretty much his high point nowadays. 
Unleashing the fiery hell hounds and hunting down those invisible son-of-a-guns!

That's so epic looking! I always enjoy your Fortress paintings the most. I wish I could draw this good. I draw only when I get inspired and that's rare. And this is definitely inspiring. Now I wanna play with colors. 😁

I don't think so. Pretty sure fortress is just a monster wolf. (But then again I haven't read the lore yet)
