YES!!! Finally there's someone other than me that likes Dinotopia! The lighting effects on the city is(are?) just beautiful. It really makes the piece have a sunset-like (or sunrise-like?) effect. Kudos to you!.
This is just pure awesomness. Tones you've chosen are perfect, they are all warm, and it's feels through, it's been a while since I was staring at one piece with that kind of glare...ligtning is amazing, and as I see it, there is no single mistake about it. Maybe it's just my imagination, but as someone taking intrest in digital painting, I can see the steps of progression on this one. I don't care I can see the lines on waterfall(s), rocks, or else, because DAMN IT FITS, and you knew it. And in so short time?...amazing. Sadly, I know nothing about Dinotopia.
I was thinking of Good old Mr Gurney before you mentioned it. I think I prefer this one to the mess of construction work of the other. Although to improve the lifestyle, sacrifices must be made. Ohhh the good old days before they decided to upgrade the city! I love your simple yet strangely captivating brush strokes that weave this atmospheric tapestry, you, like so many others, make this look easy. Id love to see a WIP!! ^^
