I've chosen a chinese/tibetan monastery in the mountains as topic for our internal concept art training at Meduzarts (

Entirely painted in Photoshop, I've started from a rough line drawing. I've spent approx. 16 hours, while recording the first 6 hours with Camtasia.

The original measures 3400x1692.
I'll post a higher res version on my website: [link]

Very powerful. Is this based on a real place? I once had a dream about this very image a long time ago - I assure you, long before you created ot. In my dream, the name of this place (in my dream, a city rather than a monastery) was 'Jeng'.

It's definitely from the Hyperborean Age.

I love the atmospheric scene, related to some of those old associates of mine whom I did not care about too much of their lives, yet hoping to discover more about "how they carried out mundane yet not so stupid looking" businesses around some temples.
