From the Suggester: "I love the concept, the lighting and details in Broken Dawn by `arcipello. It's just all simply beautiful. The softness of the curtains stand out to me, and also the splashed and dripping water.

Broken Dawn

(---------- FULL VIEW OR YOU WILL BE MISSING OUT!!!!!!!!!!!----------)

hey guys, its that rare time again when i actually finish something off!!!

this is a piece of contract work, the client wanted it to be stongly related to my silent silhouette piece, so thats why the colour scheme is somewhat similar.
ive spent atleast 80 hours on the very least!

this image was painted using both photoshop 7 and Painter 9 along with the help from my A6 wacom graphire 2, with that said please dont keep asking what software or wacom i use.

ive really enjoyed painting this and have learnt a great deal more about painting water from scratch, same can be siad of the sky.

apart from some of the brick work and a couple of buildings near the waters edge, the rest is 100% painted from scratch.

my fingers are tired now so ill let the image do the talking:D

A Spectacular Work Of Art
Hey arcipello, amazing art you've got here..:D
Well, we are a band and looking for a cover art image and this pic suits so much to our song. Can we use this as a cover-art in our EP? with full credits given to you plus no commercial gain for us(i.e. free downloadable song).

it reminds me of this scene in doraemon where they had some floating room that has a placement that looks very similar lol
Love the ruins and the nature of the light.
gorgeous! so glad you didn't say you did this in 8 hours...
