This piece of art is my dedication to the nature itself because I love forest and mystical creatures.

Techniques I’ve been used is a matte painting inside Adobe Photoshop. Lots of chops from the source image as well as textures to cover the Ancient Protector’s body. External images are my own (snapshots of my buddy) to pose the human characters. Brushing and airbrushing are required to grow vines and summon the Ancient Protector with the rules of third and golden mean composition (I almost forgot to apply those rules since I’m working as a character and creature artist rather than environment or cinematic), after that; I made touch ups in Adobe After Effects as a post-production stage and finally end up in Adobe Lightroom to enhance details and sharpens the final artwork.

Hope you like my creation; I had a lot of fun to complete this artworks. Thanks for viewing and have a great time!

Oh yeah... Will that wandering boy find this formidable creature as a friend or foe?

Kid says:

Would be better if you made monster a little brighter so it pops out a little more. Looks like a scene from a movie too

author says:

Thanks for the comments, Keiley22 and Kid. Appreciated so much!

Kid, if I made the monster a little brighter, yes it can pops up but in my humbly opinion; I tried so hard to make it merged into the environment so it doesn't look so fake. Because it's a painting inside a photo real. = )

But once again, thanks for your considerations to look after my creation and I suggest to check the WIP section too. I tried to explain everything there. Have a great time all.
