This is was my first painting for 2008 and I must say I love how it turned out. For this one I wanted to try painting more realistic and less outlined picture (and I am extremely happy with how the skin and face turned out). Also I wanted a chance to practice at painting wings, as I always found them fairly difficult to paint right. The axe allowed me a chance to design some crazy weapon that would never be practical in real life. Painted completely in Photoshop.
