The old and wise Wizard by Shockbolt The old and wise Wizard by Shockbolt
Off to a nice beginning of 2009.
This is yet another personal piece that I spent a day painting, and I would like to dedicate it to a few masters of digital art out there. I'm not going to put out any specific names as that always makes things ugly with endless discussions etc :XD:

But You are priceless to me, without You guys I would not have anyone to look up to, and strive to become as good as You. :-)

A day spent, no reference used, several layers, sizereduced alot.
Photoshop and wacom tablet.

I admire the details in the old and wise wizard's face, as much as I admire the dragon, sitting upon his head, chewing his hat feather. :nod:
