    Nice work so far! If you're going for a cloudy background, perhaps illuminate the edges of the clouds facing towards the summoning vortex/heavens/gateway where the Seraphon are falling from?

    Hey guys! Slowly getting this done, I'm struggling to find enough hours to work on this, but it's coming together.

    Done! =P

    Thanks for the comments guys, here goes an update!!

    And another crop of the face (I gave him lips, he seemed a bit demonic without them, now it's a proper lizzie!)

    I am trying to block in everything before I start detailing (tons of stuff to do in that regard)

    Cheers!!

    The eyes are spot on now, it's so full of energy, can we get a copy of this when it's finished?

    @Crowsfoot Of course, it will be my pleasure =)

    I'll keep posting updates and when it's finished I can send a full resolution copy (which is pretty big xDD). I always have to downscale the jpg like 50% so it's less than 8mb to upload here xD

    If you are using Photoshop, Try the export to Web option to downscale pictures. I find it quite helpful. :artist:

    Makes sense to me! Phenomenal work, those glowing eyes are great! I really like the glowing lightning/magical energy cascading out of the floating slann in the background.

    Well done @Lherad :vulcan:

    Not a big update, but finally blocked in all areas with at least the colours I want. Terradons and Slann don't look half bad as they are now, but there will be more refining. The saurus in the Bg need lots of work, as does the main guy but oh well. I like it so far.

    Thank you all for your comments and compliments, it means a lot to me =)

    I like them being unfinished, it makes it look like they are moving really fast, I wish I had your talent.

    Welp, not much to show, doing some progress on the skin of the Saurus leader, also added a bit of a "glow" around him, I think it fits nicely and ties him with the falling stars and blue light behind.

    Let me know what you think!!
