Sunset Fire by Saimain Sunset Fire by Saimain
This painting ate my life for nearly a week. I originally wanted to do a phoenix-fire theme, and Valance volunteered for the part, but it turned into a sunset along the way (which I like better). It gave me a chance to practice with water and backlighting, two things I've had endless trouble with in the past. The result came out surprisingly well, though Valance doesn't deserve the attention. *whaps him* I'm hoping this doesn't show up too dark for most monitors.
