500 Years Later: Purgatory by ErikShoemaker 500 Years Later: Purgatory by ErikShoemaker
yep, this is my first work with my new tablet.
It was easier as I expected it to be and it makes really fun, I've worked the whole day with it. :love:
Well I think it came out pretty nice for my first :lol: I'm sorry for the monotony though, I have to practice combining different colors first (please don't be too harsh with criticism).
