This digital painting was inspired by traditional Hindu temples of India. The most unique aspect about the creation process was that each and every color was handpicked. There was no blending between colors involved. In addition, a single hard-edge 14-pixel brush was used for the entire image. Working within these limitations encouraged me to think much more carefully about every brushstroke I made and allowed me to fully understand every detail and pattern on the stone, the transparency of the flag, and the reflection of the metal.
