Taggerung by KaiserFlames Taggerung by KaiserFlames
Another piece for Fantasy Painting. It seems like that's the only class I'm doing work I actually enjoy in. Oh weeellll.

This project was to paint a new cover for a fantasy book of our choice, so I chose Brian Jacques' "Taggerung" because I am a huge Redwall fan and the otters are my absolute favorite of the critters in those books. Naturally, Taggerung is one of my favorite books in the series.

Enjoy!
Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos3, approx. 20 hours.

Edit (11.14.2012): Some small adjustments/additions to the lighting and shadows of the piece as per instructor critique!

EDIT (11.25.2012): Aww geez! A DD! Thanks everyone! ;3;
