Here is my take on Super Dungeon's Vampiric boss fight.
I painted him as a practice for doing really harsh top down lighting- but I realized a little too late that I had basically decided to blend all of his areas from black to white.
I worked on him for quite some time, before giving up and calling him finished with the blending as is. He got a base and got put on the shelf with the blending on his back at a definitely not working stage.
I then went on to paint my entries for Gencon and a few other things before coming back to him and deciding that I really wanted to fix the flaws in my Nocturne. So I pulled him out and started touching up the blending (and it went much better this time).
So, here he is in his actually finished state.
