Artwork Description

This is my nephew, Marius! Looks like he just got some new friends

I haven´t been in doodly mood for a while due to several reasons, and this painting has been lingering for weeks. I hate that because I usually finish my paintings during 2-3 days. Today I decided to just wrap it up, no matter the result. It didn´t turn out as I hoped, though.

Painted from scratch using Photoshop with an Art Pad. Hard to tell how much time I´ve spent, but I would guess a total of approx. 4 evenings is quite close to reality. To see the progress of making this painting, click here:

Hello, thanks Smile I show the step-by-step process on my site how I made this painting, plus I have a tutorial about my general workflow on a different painting I've made that might as well work for this one as well Smile

Looks like it all came together well.
Should be a fantasy book for children.
