No crits, beautiful work! Do you have images showing the progression of the piece? I'd love to understand your process.

Edit: I looked back at some of your work from 2007. You've come a long way as an artist. Pretty inspiring!

thanks for that guys.
zombie....thanks for the kind words.....yep its taken quite a while to progress to a point where not everything i paint sucks. i remember the sheer frustration of not being able to get on the screen what i had in my mind :-) guess everyone goes through that.
some killer stuff on your site! - characters arent my strongest suit, so im a little jealous.

process for this one was quite experimental, started with a greyscale mockup, took a while to decide on this composition, but knew from start that i wanted someone walking up to a large statue or gate.
needed something visual to pull the eye down from the top, and had the idea for birds being released.
attachment shows an early composition study....ended up changing the top of central building and the foreground lighting, also ended up simplifying the mid ground as i originally imagined a harem type setting, but was looking too cluttered.
small amount of matte painting, mainly in the pillars, used a texture for the original pillar then drew a design out of that.
other big change from here was the mid ground wall that is light value, had to darken as it looked nice but didnt make sense with the lighting setup.
