The Arrival by alyn The Arrival by alyn
READ ME!!!

I don't think many are expecting this. It's something i was making for a client who lost interest somewhere along the line, but i liked where it was headed, so naturally i continued with the creation process.

I have to admit, i think this is my finest work to date, i don't know if many will agree, but i think it is from my personal standing. It contains a lot more detail and intricacy than my other pieces, more realism yet more fantasy. Bigger, and it's finally something i'm satisfied with.

Some stats....

Time taken - 80hours (spread over 1 week, this is now my most time consuming piece to date)
.PSD layers - 147
.PSD size - 632mb at 3200*7200
Inspiration - ~shirosynth ^tigaer
Music - Hypocrisy - The Departure, Hypocrisy - War Within
Tools - Terragen, photoshop, wacom tablet

REGARDING IMAGE SIZE
- if this image is too big in filesize or dimensions for you to enjoy, please go HERE for a reduced size image (same quality, but only 500k and half the size).
- why is the image this size? so you can appreciate the detail here, if i reduce it, it's less easy for you to appreciate the effort i put into it.

Prints and wallpapers to come soon, your input, whether it be comment or favourite is always appreciated. I sincerely hope you enjoy this as much as i do, it would be great to get some recognition for this :)

Thank you's to my inspiration and those who i pestered about the image during creation, and to all my dedicated watchers.
