Waterfall Castle, Frederic St-arnaud (2D)

Title: Waterfall Castle
Name: Frederic St-arnaud
Country: Canada
Software: Photoshop

It's sort of church or castle in middle of a waterfall. The image was originally a simple sketch. The idea to do a complete colour project came later. The inspiration maybe came from Lord of the Ring and everything around that. I did a sketch and painted in Photoshop over it. I used references to give me some ideas. I modelded in 3D a castle to help me with perpective and lighting.

Great painting, the perspective looks a bit odd though.

Nice work!
I dont normally take much intrest in environment images, but this one made me take notice!
Nice rendering, lighting, and a great idea. I do agree with jose about the perspective, but i dont really think its due to your perception and drawing skills, i think its just that the horizontal line of the horizon is clashing with the diagonal line of the bridge, and making you think the perspective is odd.

stunning. I wanted to do a concept like this myself, but you executed it better than I would've been able to.

I think the bridge throws some weird shadows. left part is very different from the right part. Technically they are correct but doesn't feel right.
