Lets Go Get Em by Thesis-D Lets Go Get Em by Thesis-D
Closer up version of the characters can be seen here --->

At last! My first artwork for 2013 is finished! It started off as a simple concept and sketch of a barbarian woman, then a small background and dragon, then I just kept drawing and drawing.....and drawing, then painting and painting...and painting and painting until I ended up with a 4737x3517 canvas... without even realizing it was that huge, so you can imagine why it took so long to finish this! Overall, I challenged myself for the new year by drawing things I either haven't drawn before, or have very little experience drawing (armor, weapons, and creatures). Coupled with a landscape that was never intended to be this huge, it made for a big undertaking, but I accomplished what I set out to do! I'm tired as heck, but it was worth it! :faint:

In consideration of you, the viewer, the original has been re-sized into what you are viewing now. I may make the hi-res version available as premium content at a later date for those interested in all the up-close, hi-res details. :)

Anyway, this is Hilda and her pet dragon Narse getting ready for some adventure or other in looting, plundering, or some various other mercenary work or mission. This duo is for hire, if the price is right! :XD:

90% done in Paint Tool SAI, and 10% finished in Painter X, with my wacom intuos3 tablet.

Nice job with the detail in the rocks here, they are nicely detailed and add a lot to the overall flow of this piece.
I also like the water that you painted in especailly the waterfalls at the bottom.

Thank you. I have challenged myself since this picture. My latest painting is an underwater theme with a mermaid; both are things I've never tried before. You can see it here if you like: [link]

Great work! Soo many rocks! I have a nasty habit of getting bored with details after a while. :paranoid:
