I love this piece of work!!!!! The angle of the view is a bit angled which is great! Cause lots of this kind of paintings are just boring horizontal view... And also because of the block of wall we have a sense that we are standing inside this building and look out, which feels good cause you feel like you are involved in this!

The idea of lava flooding in the desolated island surrounded by mountains, very fantasy, kind of bleak but beautiful! Especially the lava is the most red hot thing in this whole painting! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

But I think if you look at this picture for too long, the really strong impact kind of wear off... I think it might be because the left part of background gets a little bit empty... Cause theres a really tall tower standing right up through the mist, so I was kind of expecting a really tall high view of the ground, of a city full of old fantasy buildings, so the tower looks a bit lonely somehow ... to me <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="395" title=":P (Lick)"/>

I think that's the only bit that I felt could work on...! ((Just for me, different people feel differently so I can't say I'm fair or anything haha <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> )

Details are great! Althoughthe spacecrafts are not the main focus, but still give a very realistic metallic feeling! The crackings and uneven stones of the middle island are presented in great details too!!

Great work!!! Love it!!! I can't draw this so I feel like this is unbelievable!!! Above is just a little thought that flashed through my brain... Don't take them seriously haha <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="395" title=":P (Lick)"/>
