A surprise attack in the heavens. First response in all aviator's guidebooks: side spin and dive under. But I feel it won't end there... This picture took me over two months to finish, with 5 layers and a lot of updates, and is the most elaborate picture I drew to date. Painted in PSP 6, from pencil sketch. Most important stages also posted in this gallery. The original size version can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/assafs/305742369/in/set-72157594391157283/ Just click on the maginfier marked "All Sizes" for a larger view.

Woooow, this is really really good. The colours and details in the sky are amazing, and i like how the clouds seem to be moving really fast, some even look like feathers. I like the figures too, theres alot of movemnet in them, their really good, but i like the clouds best.

*first comment dance* ooh, nice work! It looks very dramatic. I love the back ground... the clouds and the sky give it life.

11 Assaf Shtilman replies: "Thanks! I rally like this one. It's certainly took me long enough, so I had the chance to put every little detail in. 1 BTW, I just printed a poster of this one for my wall. It's cooler in full-scale."

Its obvious how much work you put into this ^_^ The grass really looks like the wind is blowing and even the clouds are animated. Excellent job 2

11 Assaf Shtilman replies: "Thanks! It was really painstaking, but I ended up with a great picture. I printed a poster of it and put it up on my wall, a first ever for a digital work of mine, and even managed to sell a few copies to friends. It was a great success in my eyes."

Definitely an epic scene, and I'm sure an epic effort to produce! Very well done, I love the colours and the action. It looks to be as if the angel has been thrown back by the force of the devil's attack... Although she hasn't been hit by the fireball, it looks more like she's been hit with some sort of force rather than evading under her own power. I hope her pubes don't get singed! That would hurt! 12

1 Assaf Shtilman replies: "Thanks! Interestingly enough, the original pic didn't include any pubic hair... I had to add it in so I could publish this pic in Elfwood. That, or sensible underware. Sometimes the line between respectable art and obscene art is very slim."

Wow!! The antonomy is amazing!

1 Assaf Shtilman replies: "Thanks! I tried to do my best with no model reference. The devil came out the best, in my opinion. It's really nice to hear such compliments."
