I actually just went on tour with With Our Arms To The Sun and stared at this image for about 8 hours a night since it was on their vinyl.  Just happened to stumble upon this on Deviant art.  This is awesome!

It looks as if you used a digital medium. How did you paint this?

Layered oil paints... lots of thin transparent to semi-transparent glazes.

Looks amazingly well polished! Do you dilute with turpentine?

I don't know if I'm seeing this right but it looks like his\her staff could fit the keyhole in the tree. I noticed because of the line through depth from his\her hand through the heart and into the tree
