here's my first take on a painting of the evil one himself: Satan, in all his unholy glory, or at least one side of it.
I wanted the painting to have energy and a sense of mystery to it, almost a religious feel, and some symbolism (which I won't go into.. I'll leave that to your interpretation =).
Painted in Photoshop (with a wacom) over the period of a week. I sketched some very basic studies for the poses with pencil on paper which I scanned in, just to have something to start with (I find it easier to work from something other than a digital blank canvas). Mostly round brush and the chalk brush, but also some custom brushes for the smaller textures. Final image is about 7000 pixels in height.
Hope the image is to your liking =)
C&C questions are very much welcome.
