Hello, This was painted in photoshop. It was done just like one might do a traditional painting except for the wait time and being able to manipulate individual parts of the image. It was built up in layers over time just as a traditional painting would be. Over time, more and more detail went into it.
Hey thanks, man! Both for the compliment and letting me know that it was too small. I change the dimensions of the piece so that the shortest side was 2000 pixels. Hopefully updating it won't mess up the entry itself!
