Sleeping Beauty is an incredibly inspiring tale I think, and I hope some of that made it into the painting.
Done over 8 or 9 days, all in Photoshop, and as usual without references. But boy, I'm glad I got a new computer. The final file is 800MB, with I don't know how many layers, certainly more than a hundred, at 6400*2700 px.
Here's the steps!
I saw this pic awhile back and came across it again today.
I should have said it earlier but this is a fantastic piece of work and was part of my inspiration for a fanfic I started writing last year.
Most realistic painting I have seen!
Thanks for sharing the steps too.
