I've done this for the debut album of technical Death Metal project Anatomy Of Violence from Canada.
It's basically a photomanip but with many painted and overpainted areas.
Stock (most of the plants and textures in the foreground) is from CG Textures and my own photos (sky and skulls) put together and filtered in Photoshop, rest is painted in Corel Painter.
This was quite different to what I usually do - I thought I would safe time when usinig photos instead of painting everything or almost everything, but I think in the end it took as much hours as it would have taken to paint it...
My fifth DD!
Thanks a lot to all of you for your kind comments and especially to mintyy and Aeirmid for suggesting and featuring my image!
