Obviously you can see that this piece was a bit influenced by the music I was listening to...
Feel free to guess the part for the following titles:
- Dimmu Borgir - Fear and Wonder
- Dimmu Borgir - Perfection or Vanity
- Apocalyptica - Hall of Mountain King

After finally receiving a full-fledged critique, I was able to improve the image. Big thanks to `priteeboy for his helpful comments! Here's a list of changes, mostly to make the scene appear a little more realistic:

- changed the mountain color from blue to brown-ish
- darkened the castle
- "rounded" some mountain edges, they were terribly sharp
- a few, almost invisible tweaks taking up over an hour


total working time: ~7hrs.

Not bad, I'll admit that the mountain looks too "blue" for a late sunset scene. But it's still interesting, though the sky definetily is the most realistic part 8-) but the terrain ain't too bad either =p
