I don't really ever know what sketch will strike my fancy and eventually become a painting. This particular painting started with the sketch posted in my Halloween countdown. It might still be at the bottom of the page. If not, then here is the original sketch.
I am painting this using Corel Painter 12.2. I have about 15 hours work into the painting at the moment. Painter is still my main painting program though I often jump around between different programs depending on my mood and what I am trying to accomplish.
The original image dimensions are 5400 x 4100 pixels.
I will post an update of the final image when finished.
