hi lukas Smile - thanks my friend - i also like how it turned out, i really loved playing around with those 3d programms - i really enjoy creating pictures with the computer - the only thing i hate when i do a digital piece is that there is no original, nothing to hang on the wall....

hello marilyn, glad you like this piece, i only hope to achieve so much feeling in my paintings one day as you do, oh, this digital medium is still strange to me, but it is unbelivable fascinating - i am still experimenting, it is always exiting to go new ways --- again thank you for your comment Smile

The lightning in this one is facinating! This piece feels powerful and reaches out to the viewer. Excellent! I have yet to attempt digital.

Ok I just need to say this is an exceptional piece of work. I love the 3d look to it. I find that hard to accomplish with digital painting. This piece is amazing and my hats off to you.

thank you avi - there is no larger version posted anywhere, the original size of the file is 5196 x 7087 pixels in cmyk mode so the file size is 140,5 mb in tif format - the programs i used to do this are vue poser and painter - all models, stairs and so on are modeled by myself in vue, the wizard is poser placed in vue, than everything postworked in painter - if anyone wants to see a big version of this picture, there will be prints of it soon, just let me know if you are interested Wink

You should be very proud of your work, this is incredible. Compositionally this is wonderful, and then even the rendering holds a high value on it. Very dynamic.

thanks marley - i am also happy with the result - as i discover at the moment the possibilytis of digital painting i experiment with all i can find - just to see what can be done - the technique which i use is not as important for me as the result - so it does no matter to me if i use 2d - 3d or both or digital painting or traditional if the result is ok, thank i am happy with it Wink - for this one i used poser - vue - and sure painter - i also tried to use only 3d, but it always has a cold look , and i am not so happy with the result, so i go and paint it over - but 3d can help by composing the immage as you can do easy changes - and you cant make mistakes with the perspective and lightdirection - so it is not so bad Wink

Once again, marvelous work. It's one of the best I've ever seen. The steps are perfect, the lightning is very realistic, and the pose of the wizard is perfect. Another outstanding piece!
