Based on Richard Leach 's poem Red Dome
Itself based on an image by Hanan Kazma.
Made with DeviantArt muro with the dome made in Sculptris. A background was first drawn in Muro, then imported into Sculptris as a background. The exported render from that was then brought back into Muro whereupon the edges of the dome were rubbed out to give the impression of being buried. A bit tedious, but it was a good exercise. I was going to do a more straightforward painting, and I still might, but this will do for now.
This is a special vertically oriented version of the painting, essentially a remake. It's the exact same process as before, only in a "portrait" format.
