Masters of their realm by Hagge Masters of their realm by Hagge
I think I worked too long on this. And it certainly isn't how it orginally started out.
But it was inspired by some matte paintings I saw. *sigh* I think I'd like to be a matte painter when I grow up...:)

Also a concept for an upcoming painting...

May I ask what is your working resolution? :o This is my favourite landscape of yours. Do you start at lower resolution and then change it bigger when you add more detail, or is it always the same? I mean it's quite laggy with photoshop when trying to make strokes with big brushes on (example: 3000 x 3000 pixel) canvas and my my graphic card is one of the best out there...

It varies, actually, depending on the picture. The largest I've worked at is 2500 x 1500 or so resolution with 900 ppi and then I will actually shrink it before submitting it. And most of the time, I do work in photoshop (Photoshop 7 )

Wow, just a concept? This is seriously phenomenal. :) The eagles are beautiful, and the mountains are soooo detailed! I'd never have the patience to do that! Also, I love how you did the feathers so finely so you can see each individual feather.

I'm suprised a pic as great as this hasn't gotten more attention.

Well, I guess as you know, when you're painting your favourite subjects, patience comes a LITTLE easier...it's not really one of my strong points...but I love mountains and eagles, among other subjects...
Thank you for faving it, too. :D

You do that very well - it's very much like the view is coming from someone standing on the mountains, and this has been zoomed in a bit - or the eagles have come very close. It's beautiful!

Hagge Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2008  Professional General Artist
It really varies. This one took me several hours because I didn't like the way it was turning out :( so I went over it again two or three times.
And sometimes, when I get into a painting, I can't say how many hours it took, 'cause if I'm enjoying myself, I lose track of time. :) (something I'm sure you're very aware of, yourself.)

Oh thank you...I was afraid I was beginning to lose the feeling for it, after a bit. We've got similar mountains here in Alaska, too. :)
By the way, I think Colorado is one of the more beautiful places...
Thanks for faving it. :)

You need a little bit of both, actually. If you don't have the feeling for it, it just isn't going to turn out, regardless of how much work you put into it. :) It's a balancing act. :D
