Blizzard Art Contest 2006

After what seems like a very long time of drawing and painting traditionally, I finally decided to enter the Blizzard Art Contest with a 2d digital painting. It all happened in summer 2006 while I was working on 3d characters for Konami for an unannounced project on XBOX 360 and Playstation 3. I felt like I needed a break from all the 3d tools and technical hassles that come with this task and instead enjoy the technical simplicity of painting an image using only one tool (Photoshop) and one technique - a standard round brush. I came 4th and thought that was actually not bad, so I started to explore the possibilities of digital painting... and... will most likely continue to do so until the end of (my) time.
