Rooftop Ninja

Media: Pencil, Photoshop 7 and a Wacom Graphire graphics tablet

A ninja lurks in the shadows on a temple roof waiting for the right moment to strike...

The whole image was painted by hand in Photoshop on just three layers for the sky, rooftop and ninja. A friend suggested I orientate the viewpoint with the roof surface the ninja is resting on after he saw the original sketch.
