I didn't originally plan for this to be quite so... elaborate. I've been screwing around in photoshop lately, prodding a few approaches to digital painting. This started out as a roughed out painted version of this old drawing: [link]
, but as I kept working on it I began trying this or that thing, exploring as I went. Before I knew it I was making a full fledged painting.
This is only about half of the canvas; as you may note it doesn't include the turret. So, here's the (mostly) uncropped version
. Not quite fullsize, but it's close. In hindsight, wish I would have worked at a higher resolution.
This is a significant step forward for me, I think. We'll see if I still like the piece itself come next week.
