Hi Martin,
Thanks so much!  Yeah, I always like being able to look back and see how the whole piece got started.  It helps in learning as well!

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.

Figured it was sort of literal, given the entry point of the wound :P

Man, that is sweet! The sense of movement and action along with the weight of that axe tearing through that thing is just mesmerizing. Fantastic!

(Oh yeah, your resolution is too small, shortest side needs to be 2000 pixels or more).

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!

No problem! You can edit your submission as many times as you like before the contest deadline, I've never had a problem when I edit for contests, I even made it as a semi-finalist once!

Very cool!  Thank you again for the heads up.  I would have felt pretty dumb if I had gotten the boot on a technicality!  Cheers!

I know what you mean, I saw one entry a year or so ago get picked as a semi-finalist and then get removed for being 20 or so pixels too short, so it does happen and that sucks~

Well then, double thank you for the catch!  I totally would have missed it! Now I'm wondering if I shouldn't make it even bigger! :)
