It is in the heart of the night that the light of hope shines ever more triumphant. When everything that was once beautiful has crumbled and withered, turn your eyes to the light. Follow it, reach for it and you shall find the answers that you seek.

Painted using Adobe Photoshop CS5
8 hours of work

I've always wanted to do a fantasy landscape. I never had the chance until now. This is a personal study focusing on aerial perspective, contrast and axial balance. I'm still in the process of discovering the style that fits me the most and by the looks of this painting, I think I'm happy with where I'm going. :)

Your spiel at the beginning and this picture really captures what I'm hoping for as a scene at the end of a trilogy I'm writing. Great job :D

This is so beautiful!I love the fact that the colours are smudged a little.The texture is beautiful and I only wish to succeed at making a pic this beautiful that way.I can totaly see it as a scene taken from a movie :) I could stare at this for hours...god.

Thank you very much! I'm glad this scene that I've painted appeals to you. It took me a lot of trial and error to achieve this kind of look in my paintings. I made a lot of mistakes and there's much to learn but it's really worth it. :)

I honestly see no flaws in this painting :) And even if it was a practice you've done an amazing job.No matter how hard I try I can't get this look in my works,but practice makes perfect.Yes it's indeed worth it!:)

This work deserves many more comments honestly.I could praise this work for much more and I'd love to hang this kind of poster above my bed:)

The colors and textures in this are beautiful! This is the style I have always strived for in my own artwork and unfortunately have never been successful lol.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it! It took me years before I achieved this look in my paintings. For what it's worth, I would say that not being too concerned about smoothing the image(smudging or using soft brushes) helped me a lot. It's not very easy to achieve but nothing really beats constant practice! I'm sure you'll get there! :)

Thanks for the encouragement :) I always end up getting so bogged down in details. It's almost painful for me to leave anything unsmudged or overworked in some way. Speedpaints help as long as they don't frustrate me too much lol.

Lovely. I like the looseness of the treatment and all the textures you've achieved. Plus your color palette is stunning: there are so many odd colors in there, but they all work so well together.
