Looks ominous, like they are about to go into the dark lair of the bad guy. The calm before the storm.

I love this. Dark pictures are always a favorite of mine, and it honestly looks exactly like a scene in the book I'm writing.

This is great :) Sorta reminds me of a realistic fairy tale- it's not cliche or anything- and in all good tales there must still be moments when the characters trudge through the night to get to the magical castle, right? ;)

We can count Shadow of the Colossus as a fairy tale. This is really pretty. It's interesting how they're so much higher than the castle. You so rarely see that in fantasy illustrations!

hakubaikou Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2008
Oh good. :)

I admit I do cliche themes a lot, but I try not to go overboard. You know how some fantasy pictures have just been done to death? Like The Old Wizard Coming Down a Path from a Hilltop Castle Behind Him pic. Or the Warrior Standing with a Brandished Sword and Warrior Chick Hanging On His Knee pic. Or... man, I could go on and on....

It's lovely. It may not be a specific fairy tale, but it definitely seems like something out of a fantasy.

I think you may have gotten me dragged into these 100 themes.
