Really, this is layer after layer. The only danger is that I ignore the bits that look tricky and concentrate on details.
Soon I will have something on the canvas for everything except Lauren and Steve, but our two lovely heroes will just have to wait.
Right now I want to get colour layed down into which I can work depth and detail bit by bit. All the time stepping back from the canvas to make sure I like the way it is coming together. In this case I think it will do that coming together thing at the last minute when the final shadows and lighting and gratuitous bloody splatters are added.
There are things that I know I am putting off though, as I am not sure how to handle them. The winter gardens and Odin... I will probably have to stop avoiding them soon.
After this post I will only be showing sections of the painting. So that when it is done the people who will see completed item first will be Lauren and Steve. They might let me post the finished thing, but it will be their call. They might jut burn it for all I know ;D
