Castle Walls - Matte Painting

This started as a digital matte painting demo I gave to some co-workers. The demo only lasted an hour, but I liked the direction the painting was headed, so I dumped another 3 days into it. It's rare, but sometimes I do enjoy dealing with lots of detail and layers.
(For those who are unaware, digital matte painting is a combination of painting/photo manipulation/photoshop trickery. It's like a street fight - anything goes!)
