Scheherazade Castle of One Thousand and One Nights

Digital matte painting - concept inspired from One Thousand and One Nights, a collection of West and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights, from the first English language edition (1706), which rendered the title as The Arabian Nights' Entertainment.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

awsome ... O.O
i suppose this is a combination of drawing, and puting in different photos and textures, right?. :)

Very beautiful, but ... shouldn't the moon be lighted by the sun ? Why isn't the moonlight at the right side of the moon ?
But it is still a very beautiful picture.
what i'm wondering about is why the russian (kremlin) style onion roofs on the pallace? a persian design would have made much more sense. apart from that (i like to nag xD) absolutely beautiful (8

Beautiful. My only complaint is that I wish it was larger. It would make a divine wallpaper. :)

That's certainly nice.

Would you want me to do a critique?
