What a beautiful work of art, truly you have a great talent. When stumbling upon this piece I knew I'd like it especially since I had just returned from vacation at Walt Disney World and I've always been obsessed with everything that has to do with castles, royalty, etc.
Anyway, my high points from this piece would be:
1. The way you did the shadowing throughout the who piece not just the castle and town, it provides for amazing contrasts and it was the first thing that had sucked me into wanting to write a critique.
2. You added elements that makes this piece stand outside of the box such as the air balloon ships and the waterfalls.
3. You made the castle very intricate and the detail is superb.

I did have one low point which didn't really affect the way I thought about your piece of art which was the overall outcome and the theme you were trying to convey. By the title I pictured the landscape would look abandoned and "dull yet mysterious" as many ruins would appear.
Other than that I loved this piece so much and hopefully one day I'd be able to buy a print.

Beautiful colors and imaginative landscape. The top of the castle looks a bit two dimensional though and it spoils the rest of the fantasy, distracting from the rest of the piece. Great job on the lighting and clouds on the right. It seems a little like the clouds on the left have been shadowed by the castle, but that shouldn't be because it is sky. The brighter colors on one side and the darker colors on the other is an interesting comparison. The flying contraptions and vehicles are whimsical and interesting. I noticed the birds flying. I wonder if there are any people in this environment. An enthralling piece.

The most beautiful thing ever saw in my hole entire life ...
As the sun hits the castle just right , creating the atmosfere of a dreamland .And the color so life likw , but let's not forget about the gougeaus detailes like the marvelous waterfall or the little house on the cliffs , such a fairytale.
It gave the strange feeling of satisfaction , like I was able to look at it for a hole day non-stop .
In one word , I can describe it : perfection!<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/><img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
And the most hardest thing to make is to m\combine the land with the sky ,but you found the perfect way to do it, so good...

Your drawing is perfectly detailed and this peter pan like airships underline the fairytail character of the work. u used the light just perfectly so everything looks even more plastic. with the airships, the clouds and this stunning waterfalls the whole city looks like its flying.
you can look one hour on it and will still find some details you havent recognized before
i would like to tell you what to do better but its just stunning
i really love your drawing and would like to now what materials u used. computer? pencil? what size is it in the original?

all the best

Oh. My. Gosh. Where do I begin?

The details on this is just absolutely breathtaking! From the waterfalls to the houses to the air balloons- to everything!

This really brings out a fairy tale/fantasy like aura. The lighting gives me a nice and warm feeling, as well it makes me infer that this kingdom is full of good and everyone who lives in it is elated <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

You really did an outstanding job on this and I believe this deserves a lot more views. I honestly have nothing else to say other than that this is just such a beautiful piece.
