Those of you following my journals may have read that I hit a major technical snag forcing me to upgrade my workhorse PC. Well, this
would be the image that pushed my poor old computer over the edge, and prompted me to pull it out of the stone-age (2010) into the twenty-first (point one-two) century! And man does it feel good. Rolling new motherboard, overclocked, 16 GB of DDR3 RAM, and best of all, a monstrous 250 GB solid state hard drive!
Ah, if only I went ahead and did this upgrade before
doing this image. Well, lesson learned. Fortunately, learned a huge amount working on this image while pulling it together, had a lot of fun working all the jewel elements (I love doing things like jewelry, it's where my painting style can really flourish), and really digging the whole composition in its entirety.
Definitely a piece I'm proud to show off!
There's also a topless version I made rattling around somewhere, but you'll have to go bug *nathanscomicart
for how to get it seeing as I lost mine in an unexpected pizza accident...
