what kind of brush did you use for the pine trees?
Self-made brush - at the top it's more transparent, and a similar erasure, and I use multiple strokes on each tree branch.
Epic Nice work with a colors: they look great, especially on sun ♥

Tämän armeijan kanssa Ash (Bruce Campbell) olisi pulassa.
Cool I like the Undead troops and the sun with the dark clouds makes it really atmospheric.

So beautiful, from characters to the scene behind

I can hear Heavy Metal with this image.

Outstanding work Tero
Fin: Kummallista, ettei tällaista nimenomaista näkyä näe juurikaan sen enempää näkyä fantasiapeleissä kuin elokuvissakaan.
En: How strange that this particular sight is very rarely seen. Neither in fantasy games than in films.
This feels like it should be an album cover.
Reminds me of the Great Smith, Andre of Astora in Dark Souls...
