Dust and ashes by JJcanvas Dust and ashes by JJcanvas
A new piece I did today.
A dangerous and bleak environment, with 2 explorers spotting a city in the middle of the mountains.

Hope you like it!

edit: please full view it, as the compressed reduced version of deviantart looks terrible :o

I like the sense of mood, movement, and line contrast. It's also always nice to see that the textures look more painted rather than a photo texture overlay.

Superb piece, my friend! I really want to know how you get that eye with colours for depth and atmospheric haze, etc. You amaze me every time! I guess a good start is to draw on reference pictures, like landscape photos.

Great!

hi!
A picture like this takes me around 5 hours. It depends if I have a clear idea of what I'm going for :)

Oh my goodness! Great piece. The weird thing is I have been writing about a city in the mountains and it's been hard to figure out the mountain terrain in my head. This gives me inspiration!!!! THANK YOU!

Man, I am having real trouble deciding on which of your pieces to use as my desktop wallpaper...

Seriously, this is difficult, great job!

this looks really cool :D kinda reminds me of Dune... I like the horizontal rays of light from the windows, it makes it look like the atmosphere is really... musty

thanks! I was actually aiming for that kind of sci fi Dune feeling, so I'm glad you noticed it :)

I love each and every piece you do, but in the last few paintings you have stopped at a stage that still looks kind of sketchy, which is not bad, but please don't forget to do every now and then one of your beautiful, fully rendered images :)

Thank you very much :) I understand and I will be making "full" pieces soon. I just needed to do some quick ones in order to get back into the painting mood after a sort of long break :)
cheers
