Sky Magic by crocodiledreams Sky Magic by crocodiledreams
This is the most giant piece of digital art I have done to date: sized for printing at 48"x24" and 300 dpi. Ouch! Saving took a couple of minutes.

Done for :icondreamspirit: of two of her characters, the plan for this is for it to be printed on vinyl and mounted in a backlit frame so that it will appear to be real stained glass -- I believe she also has plans to add dimensional leading, which should further the illusion. I am quite pleased with the results here! Not only is it the largest digital piece I've worked on, it's also the most true to glass as far as types and textures.

Edit: :o DD? Thanks very much! I will respond to comments when I get off from work this evening!

Sky Magic is by *oneirosuchus. You can see the level of detail and tedious work that went into this piece; such a unique and beautiful concept! ( Suggested by sugarpoultry and Featured by KovoWolf )

Every time I start to QQ about the materials for how much this will end up costing, I come back to this image and just sit and stare at it and go "but I'll have it on my wall for the rest of my life. It is SO worth it."

Thank you, once again, for everything, and for being my friend. <3

This is wonderful. I think it looks perhaps a little kitschy, but the colours and proportion are wonderful, and the downright size of the thing just astounds me. I'm sure that your friend is super pleased with this! :D

Also, congrats on the DD. :clap:

I think she danced around in glee for days. I'd love to see her face when she gets the vinyl print of it, but she's too far away, darn it!

Thank you. :D

Your effort is obvious in the quality of this work, it would honestly make a wonderful tapestry (That term had better be correct). The diversity in color is gorgeous, making a odd sense of unity despite the contrasts in the bolder tints. The horse and the rider are beautiful, the two look great and quite different from typical works. I would mistake this from glass if hung on a wall, no doubt about that, another sign of your talent.

All in all, you have done very well oneriosuchus, looking forward to more from you and Dreamspirit.

I had not thought of "printing" it as a tapestry, but you could be right about that. This one is a little bit weird in the proportions for that, but perhaps another one, sometime. Hmmmm. Thank you very much for your kind words!

No problem, like I said it would make a good tapestry if you decided to do so, it is your choice after all. Thanks for the reply.

If I ever subject anyone to the pain of cutting and grinding this beast, it will be either myself or *Dreamspirit, since it's her characters. ;) It would be awesome to see, though! Thanks!
