Wardman Sicklepatch - Snail rider.
The idea of this piece was to create sort of a fun fantasy picture of a house built on top of a snail. I also wanted to try a different type of sky then I've done. Sort of a "big weather" day where the there's light rays pouring through gaps in the clouds. It was a little cumbersome for me, and there're some flaws. I felt I had a lot of success with some new texture brushes I made for the snail skin.
