You are a master. What software do you use and how did you learn to use it?

Thank you! Mostly Photoshop. Started with sketchbook pro to get a feel for the tablet and afterwards moved on to photoshop. Just hand-eye coordination and afterwards its just a matter of time

Thanks! That's encouraging, I'm beginning my digital journey, and it's a slow process.

Skilfully done! May I propose a theme for a future painting considering your skill?

I can not find a single illustration whatsoever of depopulated Rome during the Middle Ages, or depopulated Constantinople after 1204, where the living city shrunk back within the walls and left a lot of crumbling ruins and giant monuments, among which agriculture and herding of cattle, swine, sheep and goats took place within the ruined area encircled by the city walls.

Not a single historical illustration of herdsmen, farmers, milkmaids or the like busy with rural activities within a landscape of urban decay. The image is such a striking one, that I'm surprised no artist through the centuries ever tackled it, if Google search is to be believed.

Be the first! Even if it has to be a fantasy image on this theme.. ;)
