© 2010 Steve Stanley ...as they pass through the cities gate, Kuttedo's dragon, Takki, looks to her for approval. In the distance, Semshi begins to glow, ablaze for atrocities against her Emperor, Chao Shin. Now, as Kuttedo and Takki concentrate on moving further east, to Moghan, to render similar judgment, Kuttedo considers the decree inscribed on her sword: "No Kingdoms Outside My Own - Emperor Shin". This work inspired by wife's passion for the Oriental culture and it's offerings. **Medium Used: variant sizes and opacities of the Detail and Soft Airbrushes. The layering process includes a special texture layer for the stone effect on the arch gate. Soft blender and a light opacity oil brushes were used throughout to get the rolling smoke effects. This was my first use of the "Surface Control" tool for the "lighting" effect. The elevation, spread, brightness and exposures were tweaked and subtly adjusted in the "cool globe" setting to get the final results. Over 120 hours were spent from concept to finish on this project over a period of 30 days.
