Another advantage of computer programs to create illustrations, is the ability to make a huge sketch into a smaller integrated part of a larger work. This little image is a part of another much larger piece, but the ability to create it in large sweeping motions and then reduce it to any size needed is one of the gifts that computer painting programs offer.
The original image is almost 14 inches wide, but it can be reduced to two or three without losing any definition. As for painting the elements, my painting program allows me to enlarge areas that would be too small to paint traditionally, and get just the effects I am looking for.
