Ah! At long last, our little ring mountain painting is done!

I've been working on this for the past two weeksish (feels like forever), after having started the rough base sketch a few months ago, after being inspired by the Algen "mood paintings" concept.

The idea here was to do a "major" landscape from imagination using only Steve Ahn's Ultimate Brush (flat yet expressive), after having done a couple of "major" pieces with photo reference.

My goal was a sorta futuristic landscape with natural bridges to push the scene's fantasy. And yes, I fell into the water trap, but I love drawing water, man, it's so freeing. And the rock formations were also a lot of fun to sprinkle in there.

While I drew everything with the flat SAUB, I did want to see how it would look with a few blurs and RGB shifting, so that's why the final version has some of that, but otherwise, all flats, one layer. I did make some edits like ajusting some spikes' angles, but merged them into my main layer. The foreground ring is the only other layer, since it felt like I needed a darker value there.

Not normal,
