The Colours Fade by ReneCampbellArt The Colours Fade by ReneCampbellArt
Oh wow, I am finally done! I was going to call this 'Faded Iridescence' but it turned out to not look that iridescent so I left it. I'm so glad I finished this; there's a lot that needs changing. The background changed half way through which messed up my light source, so we'll just pretend there's two light sources ;) I also got carried away with unnecessary shiny highlights. Oh well :( It was good to do a half assed background for once; grass is shit.

This style is really hard to colour. Also, the bird is a Superb Starling for those interested.

Photoshop CS5 | Wacom Intuos 4 + Wacom Cintiq 24 HD | App. 25-30 hours.

This is amazing, as is the rest of your gallery.  I'm glad you posted it to r/art otherwise I wouldn't have seen it (oddly enough, despite the amount of time I spend on this site). ^^;

I'm curious though, you said you used an Intuos as well as a Cintiq.  Was there a technical reason for using both or did you buy an upgrade halfway through the painting?
