Final Fantasy IX – Bahamut VS Alexander WIP

Bahamut VS Alexander -  Final Fantasy IX WIP
I have been thinking of making a painting out of this scene for the last… 9 years? I guess so.
I didn’t pay much attention to fine details, since everything will be covered with opaque oil painting soon, but still, I tried to be as precise as possible on the main shapes of both summons, as well as  the town. I did modify a couple of things compared to the original, as I felt it was a bit too bulky on the rooftops and chimneys.

Here is the original rendering, as a comparison

It’s worth watching the whole scene, if you don’t know it. Epic.
