Been on hiatus for awhile. last post was 2005!

Had some free time at work.. so i whipped up this castle concept. I started with a rough sketch which you can see here:

then I grabbed a bunch of reference images for style and texture.

Just Brilliant!! Great composition, Great color usage. It feels epic yet beautiful and serene. One of your Best pieces yet! Keep up the good work. I would love to have a large print of this, let me know if you ever sell posters or anything.

Love the colors and the mood, makes you wonder what's going on in the castle for the streets below to be deserted, great work!

Thumbs up

Great Work! Love the Composition.

From seen your Website i have to say that you have a great way of drawing Athmosphere and Mood. The additional use of subtle Blur and Grain make your drawings really nice to watch.

Wonderful work! *bookmarked*

Mmmm, beautiful. I love the composition and well used space around the whole image. I am a fan of cobblestone streets, which I always struggle with. Would have loved to see some people on the street, just because I am curious to see what they would look like. Must have taken sometime to paint all those houses on the hill... Patience is golden. Well done!
