While working on this I had to move from my Macbook over to my Win7 desktop. This 1280x1024 300 DPI was causing the Mac some (make that lots) of heartburn (like freezing up).

The Mac is apx 4 yrs old (the first of Intel Macs) 1.83 Ghz Core Duo with 2 GB RAM and the on board Intel 950 video. The Win 7 system is 3Ghz Core 2 w/ 4GB and a Nvida 9800 1GB video card. So it has lots more power. ArtRage installed and runs great, and got the Wacom Bamboo Pen setup on it.

Sketch:




Setup two layers one for Walls and other for lighting.


Then enter the dragon..


Next layers(s) will be the warrior, with two glowing swords, then I expect shadows / highlights and debris to be added.
