Painted with Photoshop CS3 with a Wacom Intous 3. I believe it took me about 36hrs over a few weekends to finish. I had a lot of fun painting this. It's the kind of thing I like to paint the most; that is people riding on creatures in an alien landscape with multiple moons/planets in the sky. FUN, FUN, FUN!
I used a little bit of photo reference of myself to make sure the poses were correct and to get the hands right. Hands are a pain to paint but will make or break a painting so I spend extra time trying to do them justice.
