Okay, I think I am done now lol
Posted the final painting in the first post
Please check out today's character.
Great progression in your painting incorporating alot of the suggestions that were made, LillyCat. I agree that the background arch could probably have been pushed a little more in terms of perspective but the richness of your rendering is super!
I've never heard of the story behind the painting's concept but I'm inclined to go wikipedia it now. I'm a big fan of ancient myths and settings based on ancient historical context.
Thank you so much and yes the suggestions help so much. I am so happy with the way it came out. It would have not be so much without the help of others I am still learning how to CG paint but can be a little hard with my broken out of date Wacom tablet...but it does the job ^^
I was not sure of the story until I was reading something else and found it. I was able to do fur, feathers, scales and blood to help learn more all in one painting.
