Talon by Saimain Talon by Saimain
An older commission from 2008 for The Astor Chronicles series by Australian author Amanda Greenslade. One of the largest commissions I've ever painted, in terms of size. I'm not used to working at such a large resolution, so it took several weeks longer than I had planned on. I had to constantly merge layers down so my poor comp wouldn't explode. ^__^;

In answer to print requests for this image, high-quality glossy prints and giftcards are available HERE: [link]

0.5 Mechanical Pencil and Photoshop 5.5
Characters Amanda Greenslade
