Just went through your thread and my jaw dropped at every new image! You have some serious talent! +rep
thanks, it's mostly not talent though, it's mostly practise.

Also, out of curiosity - is this a digital piece, or is it hand painted? Or a mixture of the two? +rep
Yes, I always leaned towards the classical painters, ranging throughout the times (from Zurbaran to Flemish Primitives to Carravaggio. The difference nowadays is that I'm beeginning to "get it" so to speak, so I can actually paint the way I want more and more.
This is pure digital.
