"Even though it's been over 300 years since the destruction of the temple, the followers of Wor'ath are still gathering to this sacred place."

This painting was a result of studying several different paintings for inspiration. I'm still trying to keep a fairly loose style with my paintings, while concentrating on the overall picture.

This painting reminds me a lot of Lord of the Rings for some reason, though I adore the detail in it! It's so realistic too!

:new: Beautiful piece of art! It's so rich in detail, giving it a very distinct look. It stands out and it really tells a story! Makes you want to know more than what's presented in front of you! Im also reminded here of the Skyrim universe, surreal and emersive. I really enjoyed it ! Keep up the good work! I'll be keeping an eye on your gallery! :thumbsup: :highfive:

The mountains here, though distant are what caught my eye first.  Then the second thing was the smooth transition from the mountains into the trees. Overall it seems to be based from something else, at the very least it is a very nice picture. :)

This is beautiful :) I love the colors in the background, and the light on the ruins. It's so complex, and gorgeous. I really love the water, with just a faint reflection of the land.
