Usually I don`t really like painting environments in my freetime, because I am working as an environment concept artist... Actually I just started to doodle around and I quiet liked those spike-like rocks, so I started to detail it further. Then I needed a character to add a scale... but what the hell that knight doing on this unfriendly landscape? he is chasing a dragon of course! :-)
Done in about 2,5 hours in Photoshop and - what is a bit unusual from me - I just used one (!!!) layer and only a basic square brush.
