This is the cover for an upcoming RPG book for Green Ronin Publishing.  I had a lot of fun drawing the city, Aldis.  I got to draw so much detail- my favorite part :D 
This will be for sale in June.

So, playing my Blue Rose game last night, I googled a picture I could paste the URL into the game. I saw this and thought, "this is really nice." Imagine my surprise when I followed the link and found it was an official picture for an upcoming book! So, thanks twice. Once for being awesome, and once for letting me know about a book I want!

Fantastic work! what i love about it are the details. When you did the smaller buildings, did you plan the angle of each one? How did you organize the composition of these buildings? Whenever i try it it feels forced and fake whereas yours looks organic, unstructured, yet believable. 

Can't see any repeated buildings...

Anyway great work. look forward to seeing more of your work!

Holy, exquisitely wondrous! This Ethereal City of Aldis is stunning and The Ocean Scape looks incredible. The designs, sailors, boats, castles, mansions, marketplace, docking bay, villages, houses, bridges, stairwells, domes, mural, walls, roofs, windows, decor, architecture, water, waves, reflection, ripples, poses, expressions, valley, mountains, ledges, cliffs, crevices, sloping hill, pathway, terrain, sky, clouds, mist, sunlight, rays, trees, flowers, brush, flock of birds, flow, movement, effects, realisticness, perspective, atmosphere, hues, textures, composition, concept,uniqueness, colors, lighting, style, and other details are also sensational. Amazingly Beautiful work! :iconfantasticplz:

I'm still in awe every time I look at it. I've come back to stare at the city at least twenty times now. Stunning.

Great Scene! Reminds me of Gondor :3
Maybe increase contrast and colors in the focus while pushing the details back in non-focal areas?
Love it anyway <3

Wow, this is beautiful! And it gives me a great idea of how to design a city in one of my own stories.
