So here's my entry to the competition now. I have pretty realistic expectations, but I tried my best and I'm happy, because this is as far as my skills will take me at the moment! I have pushed myself further than ever in this piece - I absolutely hate painting rock and always tried to avoid rocky backgrounds as much as I could, but here it was required. xD
... close-up it probably looks too rough round the edges.
Photoshop Elements 7. & Wacom tablet, countless hours and endless frustration.

Good luck to everyone participating in the contest! You guys make beautiful art and whoever wins, certainly deserves it!
