The ogre, colorized. This is the first computer painting I've ever finished (I recently got myself a wacom tablet, I love it), and I discovered that it was surprisingly easy and quite a bit of fun... I just went over to my parents house, sat down in front of their big screen tv, and watched ZDTV (yeah, you read me), with my laptop and lime graphire tablet in front of me, finished it in about three days worth of that. It was great. I suggest that all serious artists should get one of these things (and a decent computer, of course). Anyway, I'll work on a background for it later. This was done in Painter3D for the most part (I can't get ahold of Painter 5 or 6 right now), the wood grain on the staff I did in Photoshop using the dodge and burn tools. Gotta love dodge and burn. Oh, I'm rambling now, sorry.
