I started by working on the areas where the light interacted with the armor, using the Scale brush to add further detail to the armor. For the cloak I tried to capture the momentum rather than consider the folds carefully, and I adjusted the color gradually as the cape became more affected by the background color. My favorite brushes are marked in red in Fig.05.

I then added a yellow color to parts of the armor highlight, which enhanced the image and contrasted with the red of the cape (Fig.06).

I also added some color to the light reflecting from parts of the main character, as this implies that it is part of a larger scene and that there is more around him to reflect color. Then it was time to start to think about finishing off the image. I continued to adjust the image and refined the areas where the light reflected off the armor. I also cleaned up the structure of the armor on the horse's neck. In order to enhance the mysterious feeling of the image, I added some spikes and skeletons to the foreground (Fig.07).

To finish everything off I continued to refine some of the details. I enriched the detail on the armor to show more of the design and when that was done I went on to make sure the light and shadow on it was accurate. I used a variety of random brushwork to make the image look relaxed and full of passion. This process continued until I felt that the image was completed (Fig.08 - 09).

The entire process of creating this image was fast. It was important for me to use expressive brush strokes to enhance the free flowing effect. I sincerely hope all of you liked my Making Of and learnt something from it.

Thank you.
