Another older render. This has always been one of my favorites, as it depicts my story character, Arden, and is also a redo of an older render I've remade a few times over the years. I've included the older versions for comparison. The portal is retextured by using some shaders (the original textures were a bit too pixelated for me) and the particle effects I believe were mostly done in Photoshop. The lighting on this gave it more of a painted look. I still use this as a wallpaper on my laptop hehe.
