I'm gonna say it: THIS IS FUCKING AMAZING! Man, you should have won first place. This is uber badass! The details and lighting are awe-inspiring and simply beautiful. The pose is striking and just eye-catching! Even if you didn't win, fantastic job.

Haha, indeed!

Iīm not too surprised, I never expect anything when doing art contests, itīs always a very subjective thing. But the money would have been nice though! :)

I need to know your technique. do you use textures, if only you have a video where i can see how you make this art peace.

:iconjoel-lagerwall:
Joel-Lagerwall Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014   Digital Artist
Itīs quite simple, this one is mostly done with one brush, standard soft brush in Photoshop, as for textures I rarely use them, I use textured brushes instead sometimes. Blending modes that I prefer is Color Dodge. I was going to upload some videos on Youtube, but I just havenīt had the time yet, but there will be in the future for sure.

Thanks!
