Iracnory - Last female dragon

Iracnory is the last female dragon in this kingdom and she is pregnant.

Chased by the (evil) king and his knights willing to put an end to the Dragon Reign, Nin-yafa has the hard task to bring Iracnory  to safer places so she can give birth to her dragonets/baby-dragons and maintain the dragon race.

Been a while I could do some personal work again

I could only paint on it every now and then in my breaks and stuff, and finaly even though I did use some custom brushes in the end for the out of focus parts, plants, textures,etc, most of it was painted by hand with a basic round brush and it took me ages.

The original picture is for about 14.000 x 10.000 pix.

A tradigital slowpainting I guess.

I'd seen this piece in the magazine, and thought it was excellent, but seeing the full-sized image from the CD left me gobsmacked. This is a phenomenal image! I had a handful of epiphanies letting my eyes wander across the surfaces and textures, then soaking up the gorgeous colors. Freakishly beautiful stuff.

wow! the sky is blue. said...

I second you Nicholas!
