Description

Hey all,

this is my latest matte painting made for the "Kings and Queens" contest: wesley-souza.deviantart.com/jo…
I went with the most classic categories, 'Medieval King' and 'Landscape of the kingdom'. The scene is supposed to be all about the castle and the environment, but there also lies a little story hidden in the details if you just look close enough. [:

The castle is based on this excellent stock image (Plaza España in Seville, Andalusia):

Other stock photos I used are:
King: fav.me/d1dv99o | crown: fav.me/d6iiqjq | Slaves: fav.me/d68nh4f and fav.me/d1mry8c | Guard: fav.me/d53731h | Torches: fav.me/d1e3av3 | Fire: www.cgtextures.com/textures.ph… | Tower: www.everystockphoto.com/photo.… | cliffs: fav.me/d5r8o6g and fav.me/d16luwr | clouds: environment-textures.com/photo… | texture: fav.me/dxuvpd

The background landscape, birds and hand are from my own collection.


I hope you like it! :)
