The 5th painting I have done for maiagame. This image is not available for use by anyone else.[link]
All my usual techniques, painted from scratch in Photoshop, using the vanishing point filter to set up perspective guides.
A very clean required look, so I only used the default hard round and soft round brushes to avoid unwanted textures.
To prevent all that horrid 'color banding' with gradients and subtle tone changes I changed my usual Photoshop bit mode from 8bit to 16bit, which is LOADS better with the 1000's of extra color tones.
