After a few frustrating hours I'm still struggling with this guy. I'm pretty happy with how the fissure turned out but getting the background elements to look good has been hellish. Things that still need work: The fire and surrounding glow, maybe more on the clouds, the motherfucking grass. Its also a lot harder to do atmospheric perspective (similar to the landscape featured in post #1) when you're doing a night scene... with a fire in the background.
Very soon I will embark on a journey into the world of Okami. I may not be able to do anything else for while.
