Timelapse video:

Hey guys! Wanted to finish this even though it was a nightmare from start to finish. So many things are wrong in this image but whatever I was too far in when I realised so I powered through it.

Don't forget to check out the video to see what I mean ;)

Once you get past the heart stealing and the glowing eyes he's quite a hunk. I bet he could work something out like go murder thatgthat guy outside then come back because we're missing your soap operas.

wow, most art doesn't include such detail in both the subject and the background. Great work!

I watched the time-lapsed video on YouTube before I saw this final image.

I just wanted to say that I truly enjoyed watching you paint this, and I loved the mood and depth that you created, all while listening to Gloom from FFX. With the scenery, the light, the creature... I got a sense of overwhelming foreboding and sheer terror that made watching the creation that much more interesting. It was like watching a story unfold and I felt as if I was there. The light was beautiful, and the dark scene felt like magic.

So, even though you felt it was a nightmare from start to finish, i really enjoyed this work on a deep level. I would love to see more creation scenes like this.

Thanks for this, and great work.

I've pondered this for a while, and now that I focus less on the main character it seems to come to life. There is reality granted it by the shaft of light peering through the scene from the right. There is depth in the long winding path foreboding only in it's indication that a beast such as this might well cross your path. All this puts the beast in it's place with that relaxed lean he has that indicates that this is his territory.
