Cool, I like that the inspiration shows. I was worried at first that it would come out too similar to Imalous picture, but I think I added enough to make it "inspired by" rather than a copy. I didn't save any progress pictures for it, but it was a very simple process. Just a bunch of more or less random textured brush strokes to get something to work with, and then a simple pass refining the shapes I could pick out in the mess.
This looks amazing! I love the legs and the trees especially. The whole atmosphere is brilliant; the kind of place you'd almost expect a boss battle in a video game-- a mini-boss at least, like Dark Link in Ocarina of Time.
