Painted Spiria Pin-up

So this is a painting I did a little while back. I meant to post it earlier but I forgot about it. Although my painting skills aren't all that great, I still really like it because I feel it captures the story of Spiria pretty well.

It shows the four main characters from Spiria in the centre, with the gentle glowing moon on their right, and the harsh, noon-day sun on their left. The main villain of the story looms menacingly over them. An army spills out of the gates of a fortified city, and a delicate blossom blooms from the tangle of vines that frames the whole thing.

An art teacher of mine gave me a lot of tips and pointers while I painted this, so a big thanks goes out to him. Thanks!

Looking at this painting again makes me want to start doing another one...
Anyway, thanks for reading, I'll try and have something new up here by next week.
