Not 100% happy with this one....the castle is kind of boring. Didn't want to use so much time on this piece though.
And sorry for the stupid title lol...guess im not so inspired right now.

Anyway, here is the process: [link]

The castle has a perspective issue, compare it to the cascade or the island fort: it's leaning back. It also feels like the back cascade is somehow "not flat enough", but my eyes might trick me.
Anyway, great pice!

The Landscape is stunning, i really like it, and i noticed it looks more cynical(sp?) when the land is in the shadows, so im guessing if this ended up being a night-time picture it would look evil and then good during the day, but thats just my imagination getting the better of me. I like the area where the waterfall is, mostly that little island in the river seperated from the main land where the castle is. It has a mysterious look to it in my opinion.

I really like it! The castle being 'boring' is actually a good thing because it doesn't take away from the landscape, which is absolutely stunning!!

The picture is stunning! :D

Well, maybe the king/queen/whatever that lives there didn't care much about decorations? ^^

The details in the picture is amazing, and I love that tiny little bridge near the waterfall (that by the way is gorgeous!).

I write a story, and in there, there's a queen, and I always picture her living in a castle like this! Can I describe this background, so that she kind of lives in this castle?

nice atmosphere! maybe it's just me, but I feel like it's difficult sometimes to get yellow and blue to play well together, but you did it :)

random: this keeps making me think of the abhorsen's house/island from garth nix's series :F
