Simply beautiful, the strokes look beautiful. I think the LOTR influence has just enough effect to look elven and still have it stand alone as a work of art. I reiterate: Beautiful.

STUNNING!! Simply STUNNING! I thought the Caldera was just as good, but this looks like it was taken straight out of the movie! (LOTR) You've DONE it again! I'm half tempted to download copies of your work for Background options. :XD:

I love the details in the city. i can actually see what it looks like and it's still off in the distance. Some artists leave it blurry and you can't get a feel for what the city actually looks like. Beautiful job :) I would love to live here... :)

Quick question: This image (if used as an example of a commission) would be more along the $70 or the $150 range in price? Very curious, because I would love to commission a few landscape drawings from you if it is more along the $70 mark. :]

Absolutely stunning work! I particularly liked the colour and the composition :). It also seems to me that you're exceptionally good with them judging from the rest of your wonderful pieces as well.

It was very well deserved! I just thought it was cool how you were able to achieve great lighting without painting with values first.

I may ask for you to illustrate a few things for my book. Not finished yet but getting there.
I'm trying myself to design a city built over, around, and all the above, a waterfall and I just can't get it. And yes, it is a alien city but...think of it more "human-like" than the cartoons have it.
In the center of the city is a palace with a huge courtyard, it's a peaceful city.
Would you be interested?

Thanks if you are. BTY: I love this painting.

Since you are so good, you should probably try. Even if you are not going to be a full time illustrator, you can make some money with your skills!

I don't play card games, but my guy friends do, and there's this one called Magic the Gathering. I look through their decks all the time to look at the art, I think your paintings are definitely qualified for those. :D

Thank you very much! I have had a couple commissions, but nothing really serious. I'm going back to school next week though, so I won't have much free time for that. But art is definitely something I want to be an important part of my life later on. Thanks again for your comment :)

Well I am just saying this because I think your art is marketable. You know not every kind of art is. You've got really good skills and I wish you good luck in your future, whether you choose art as a profession or not. :D
