Recently I saw this
beautiful photo by *newcastlemale
which I really liked and which immediately made me want to paint a similar scene. Hey I don't know how close it is in the end, but at least the fortress looks alike
Big thanks to Graeme for being cool with me using his work as a reference and for making awesome photos! Go check him out =]
I tried creating the whole image by using the lasso technique here, which is a bit of a first for me. Was good fun though and I'll definitely use it again.
Anyways, hope you guys enjoy it! As always, I am keen to hear what you think.
