Somewhere between the last photo and this one I forgot to keep taking pictures. The bulk of the painting was done so it was all a shadow here and a highlight there. The red reflections on the left suggest some source of firelight off screen and they help define the shapes that would otherwise melt into the shadows.
One huge composition problem with this image is the big empty space in the lower right corner, but it was time to turn it in for the program cover. They made use of the empty space with their logo.
They were happy with the art, but I was not satisfied with it so I went back to work on it later.
Maricopa Con is a great little gaming convention in Phoenix every summer. It's sold out for this year, but check the website for info about next year. http://www.maricopacon.com/
