Saint Gia and the Dragon

Digital painting loosely based on the Christian tale of Saint George. I wanted to recreate a Neoclassical painting in Photoshop. My idea was to show a dramatized scene, so less cinematic but more staged maybe. Started with a monotoned underpainting and added color layers (glazes and opaque paint). Overall it was a really fun project and a good challenge!
