Well dressed man(?) about the Pillars (of Creation)

Inspired by fine details within the Pillars of Creation in M16, one of my all-time favourite Hubble photos. Experimenting with digital oil painting (no mess!) to add more texture to the fictional bird-man and gas clouds of this majestic environment. 55cm x 55cm.
