Title: Veranda Majestic (Revised Version)
Name: Jerome Moo Wen Han
Some time ago I painted the first version of this concept. But it still lacked something and that has been bothering me ever since until I decided to give it a big makeover.
I hope this second version is better than the last.

I don't recall ever seeing the first version, but this one is brilliant, most notably the perspective and the colors, but there isn't anything not to like. 5 stars!

Hi Leonardoart, harachte, colt51, Vas-Q, and chrom, thank you for the kind comments!
Leonardoart: I only paintover this old work once hence the second version. I don't think I will paintover this one anymore because its time to move on to new pieces. My friends are tired of my Chinese themes found in most of my works, so I am gonna try something new! Hmmmm....

Not here, my friend.

Haha, Joana! I guess that makes you (and my dad) the only person (s) to encourage me to stick to the Chinese theme. But don't worry, I will still come up with some every once in a while! Nice to have some variety! :)

Great work, nice update.
Rich detailed, story telling piece of art.

I like this piece. I dont know what you learn at Lucas, but to think wisely this need more then just a simple artistic skills to convey the self-explanatory story.

Hi Zoltan (Piktor), thanks for commenting! :)
Hi Shahrul, I do not understand what you mean. Would you care to explain further? This piece is mean to be interpreted however one would like. The idea here is to create a new kind of architecture as well as creating a scene for it. The story is up to the viewer. My story is that the girl is begging for something on behalf of the warrior prince kneeling behind her because only the purest of heart can ask for something from the benevolent Veranda Majestic (the name of the Dragon). In this case, she is asking to borrow the Golden Liondog called Runaway Sanctuary for the Prince.
BTW, this has nothing to do with what I learned from Lucas. Its a personal painting.

I get your point on the story Jeromoo. Thanks. The story is there but it merge well with the art itself, though I would remove the shadow dragon at the right top corner as it is distracting probaby with moon or some flying creatures. I like how you subdue the roofing to be more motion like as if the Veranda Majestic did come alive for the sake of the warrior prince redemption. Forgive me but when I'm referring what you learn at lucas are more of theories and methods how to convey art emotionally, restructuring them within optimal values of composition. Cheers

Thanks for your explanation, Shahrul :). I do agree that the scene is too busy with so many point of interests. Actually I intended that. I played alot of adventure games (games with many gorgeous details all over the screen like Monkey Island, Myst series, Syberia, and the like) last time so I wanted to recreate that kind of feel. I wanted the viewer to examine every inches of the painting and discover some interesting details as if they are playing the game itself. So you can say that in this case, I paint as a gamer. :D
What I learn at lucas is not about Theory in Art. We learn to use technical stuff like Shake, Maya and the like. :)
Granted, I still have alot to learn about Art. In fact, I still pester my former lecturer to give me feedbacks. I'm a student for life.
