Ready to call this one finished.

This painting has been through some crazy stuff.

I started it back last November, right before/around when I was hired as a temp at Turbine. My new schedule had me working on it off and on for those first few months. Since then it has seen me in a full time position at Turbine, two moves... well, if you know me you'll know that the last 8 or 9 months have effectively been insane. I think I could effectively say this piece might sum up 2012 in terms of time span and events.

For a while I was lucky to sneak in 30min at lunch, an hour after work- but overall not much more than an hour or two each month, with some random spurts of time. It's kind of disgusting for me how long this took, as someone who is used to finishing a piece in a few days to two weeks (although personal pieces can drag on sometimes since they often do get put on hold, but never this long!).

It was originally started as a MtG portfolio piece, but I also wanted to give off the feeling of power, particularly that of 'man' through nature.

Needless to say, I am at the point where I can't stand looking at this piece or having it sit in the back of my mind any longer, so I am calling it done and moving on! It was a good learning experience, and I think accomplished what it needs to for me right now.

I certainly don't mind my work being shared around as long as it's not being used for profit and/or advertising, and is rather just being used to showcase the work itself. =)

In Russian segment of Internet, "power of earth" is meme originating from video. In that video, some crazy doctor advices that "pickle put in your ass cures hemorrhoid, and gives you POWER OF EARTH".
This pic is badass, but I can't take it seriously with that title.
