This is not new. I actually painting this while still in school 2 months ago. I was practicing landscapes/backgrounds. I didn't post it cause... well I'm too lazy to explain it right now. You can see it now though. xD Seeing as I'm going through an artistic drought.
This thing took me forever- I remember it being a particular pain in the ass to finish. Had to work on it off and on for like a month cause of finals and boredom with it. I really like how it turned out though.
