Half life 2, Episode 2

I painted this for my Secret Santee, but couldn't post it, in case he saw - it was for someone in Edmonton, and I wasn't sure if he checked here. At first, I thought I'd just post the finished image, but have decided to do a step-by-step, and unveil the finished image on Christmas Eve.

This is the source image.

Here's my pencil outline - the whole thing, then left and right sides of the canvas. I managed to buy a canvas the right dimensions - often, that's really difficult, and I end up having to either crop the source image (which I hate to do) or extend it and imagine extra bits at either the top and bottom, or on the sides.

Check in tomorrow for the start of the sky.
