for the idea (she drew a scene much like this
for my contest last winter; not sure if this will happen like this in the actual story, but be warned, it will be close), and to Mr Helmut Höldl, who was kind enough to send me a high-res version of a picture
I used as a reference for the lighting in this piece. (Reference only, this is not a photomanip or anything, some people had asked...)
Pencil lineart, Photoshop.
