Hello,
I think that's the most detailed and time-consuming painting I've done so far. Everything is painted from scratch, bit by bit; the character, the sword, the dragon's scales, the rock. I've used some ref. for the base figure pose.

Painted in Photoshop.

I hope you like it.
Thanks for viewing!

Better then Boris.
I was surprised to see this was painted in Photoshop, though I know nothing about digital art so I guess I shouldn't have been. Everything about this is amazing. Even the rock underneath her is fun to study. Definitely one of my all-time favorite pics on DA. *Bows*

Actually I don't use a mouse, but a Wacom tablet, so it's much like a pencil.

What an amazing amount of skill. I would have a mind explosion by the end of this one. The textures are so well done and the lighting is great. Very few times a painting reminds me of Boris Vallejo, but by god this one does. Great Job!

The skin tone is gorgeous. To add to the beauty, you throw in a supersharp-blood soaked sword and highly textured dragon. There's no competition to it's beauty, m8. You never let us down.

On another note, it's a really nice touch adding the additional spikes at the wing joints of the dragon.
