    This is such a glorious piece I had to bump it. The feathers are amazing. It is such a great thing to see the professionals posting for the dreamers in all of us, and cause our cups of inspiration to be refilled. Wonderful sense of sobriety in this piece.

    Have you thought about changing your handle to Pill Head though Brian

    Thanks again to all who wrote comments... Though this thread is a little long in the tooth more questions answered:

    ceeda- "Did you use layers here at all or is it all on one layer?"

    I primarily (like about 99 percent of the time) paint on one layer. Back in my Photoshop days I used layers to paint the different elements but ultimately gave it up as it gave me very VERY clean edges which belied it's digital heritage. In an attempt to make my images seem more "painted" I adopted the "single layer" approach. The only time I ever use layers these days is when I need to make color corrections or size changes to a particular element at which time I'll pop the image back into photoshop do a rough selection of the element, copy it onto it's own layer, change the color and/or size and then flatten the images back to one layer before going in and fixing any anomolies the change may have made.

    killing.people- "is the robot count up to 12?"

    As much as I would like to say, "yes", I can only answer no. The robot count is up to a stunning 4 robots. Due to my full time gig, (Kept artist at a game company) and the fact that these take so long to do, the whole thing is taking quite some time. The numbers in each robot piece are just arbitrary numbers that I've picked because they "feel" right rather than the order of which I painted them.

    Nirox- "I've always wanted to see a fat version of that robot

    Would you believe that I've got a bunch of these guys already sketched out and there is in fact a fat one amongst the crowd? Perhaps I'll paint up that one next.

    Irate Customer- "Have you thought about changing your handle to Pill Head though Brian"

    No, but I'm sure my wife has! Woooo I'm here all week.

    Thanks for the bump by the by.

    Okay kiddies, it's back to the Wacom tablet for me.

    Man I LOVE the detail in this work! Not just the artistic, but the image~mythos motifs: the angel wings, the "halo" antennae and the fish all bring to mind a fallen (Judeo-christian) Angel motif.

    My god. This art piece simply blows my mind away-- Your head goes wild with all sorts of possibilities that can be read into the scene and it's so visually appealing to boot.

    I have sooooo much catching up to do.
