I have been working on this thing on and off for about 2 months now, and I finally feel as if there isn't too much more I can do to it (yet... heheh). This was meant to be a bit of a digital painting boot-camp, and I definitely learned a lot while doing it... at this point I am just glad to be done with it.
Image concept is from a piece of background history for a science fiction rpg I have been running for some friends, and shows the opening moments of a battle that ends up spanning several weeks and decides the fate of the Insectoid race's homeworld. As to what exactly that is... I'll let you try to figure it out.
Background is all on one layer, with figures and effects on their own layers respectively. About 30+ hrs (longer than it should have taken..) in PS CS5 with a Bamboo Fun Tablet.
If there are any glaring (or not so much) errors, tell me! It is very possible that I missed some, and I want this thing to look solid.
