"Hidden", a small village in the middle of nowhere.

I started off with a line drawing in Photoshop 7.
This my first matte, which worked without the use of any photo references. I tried to imagine a
Lord-of-the-rings styled landscape with an asian touch of architecture.
The original is in a 4k-resolution.

Critiques and comments are very welcome!

Thanks for viewing,

This is beautiful, the colour palette is so calming and really highlights the mystery of a hidden village.

I've just seen your gallery and I've been "charmed" by your landscapes.

I'm wondering if you could explain briefly what kind of brushes do you use on Photoshop, to do similar works, such as the effects on the three ...

I hope you will understand my english, I'm italian

Thanks a lot :)

for a village it's quite small :O looks like a large house. Also perspective is a little bit off, esp where the bridge is. Where the village is, the buildings also look like it's not on flat land, which I know happens but because the buildings are close together I think the ground would be pretty much all leveled off if they were indeed real buildings.

It's painted very nice though :)

I like the fantasy style of this over the realistic style of your many other paintings.
