Palace Entrance, James Paick (2D)

Title: Palace Entrance
Name: James Paick
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop

Another piece to go into my development of personal projects. This is a visual development piece to establish a couple key elements in the story. Done completely in photoshop. The painting depicts the entrance way to palaces in the mountains. Religious monks protect the passage way to the entrance.

nice piece I like idea colours and composition.

Very nice colors and athmospere! I especially enjoy the subtle tones of red in the lower right section and the bloom on the rocks.
Some critique: I think the middle tower could have a little bit more mist on the top, and I wonder if there should be some more perspective/distortion on the top of the towers as well because now they seem very straight.

oh man you so have to do a video tutorial or speedpaint of your work process. Your stuff makes me half want to cry and half wobble with admiration, in a good way of course

Amazing work, great atmosphere! IMHO, I think the perspective is a bit forced, specially the scale between the monks and the stairs in the background. Still 5 star work though.
