Merlin from Echoes of Camelot is finished.

I wanted to paint him in forest colors, but my tests with that all ended up a bit boring. So after browsing alot of pictures I wanted to try a backdrop to make things interesting.
It is my first time trying out a backdrop and I went in with a plan for it which I ended up not following xD I had fun painting it with very visible brushstrokes and no neat straight lines and at the turning point into refining things I really wanted to just keep it more painterly. So I did ;)

All in all a very good project, making me move out of that comfort zone and trying new things!
