The old, dark, Haunted Castle by JJcanvas The old, dark, Haunted Castle by JJcanvas
Hey!!
Another scenery ! Tried to give it a painterly look !
Really had a blast painting this one, I like painting rocks for some reason :P. 100% airbrush in PSCS3
I hope you like it!
And sorry about the title, I just didn't know how to call it -.-

Take good care.

Dear Jorge:

I'm hoping you will kindly consider granting me permission to use your marvelous image, 'The old, dark, Haunted Castle', as the cover for one of my next novels.

I've published five books to date and am embarking on a dark heroic fantasy series entitled The Book of Heroes. Your piece would be four projected book 4, Queen of the Mountain. I can't be sure, but the figure in your piece looks to be female, with a bow (?) or longsword (?) on her back. Perfect for my story.

If this would be acceptable, I would need for you to provide me with a high resolution image (at least 300 dpi). And, of course, I would credit you as artist.

Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes, and respectfully,

August Hunt

It gives me a "Really dangerous task must be acomplished, at all costs" kinda feeling.

I'm making sense...right?

Anyway, great job, as usual.

It seems like the image gives you a sense of backstory about a journey, which is the feeling I tried to give it, so I'm happy you got that impression as well :D
Thank you :)
Take care
