Wow, I finally scanned in that giant monster of a painting. It took well over 30 separate scans, I pieced it all together in photoshop. DAMN that took a long time. About 4 hours and 15 minutes, to be exact. Lol, that's why I mostly do 16"x20" and smaller.....

Anyway - here it is - in all it's glory - Click below to see it...

Please note: this is a custom commissioned piece and it is copyrighted. Don't re-use or copy this painting for any reason without express permission! (sorry, I gotta say that).

Here it is - as of yet untitled. 36"x48"

Detail of Dragon

Detail of the Faerie

Now, I may or may not get those sketches done tonight. If not tonight, then tomorrow (don't worry Mark, if you're reading this - they're in the works!).

Re: wow!

Thank you so much =) Lol, I want to keep it for myself!

I'd say I spent somewhere around 70 - 100 hours on it (including numerous sketches and brainstorming with the client prior to painting). Maybe even more. I have a terrible sense of time when I'm painting!

Jasmine It's Wonderful!!!

It's beautiful! I know you must be very proud! It looked so huge when you were working on it with the webcam on.
By the way this is Carrie "Tigerpixie". I wanted to ask you a favor. I'd like to sign up for a Live Journal account. Just the free one to see if I like it. It says I need an account creation code from an existing member. Do you think you could help me out? Pretty Please!
Don't worry about replying to that long e-mail I sent you. I know how busy you are!
