An amazing piece of artwork ! Love the atmosphere and use of light. The castle in the background indicates this is certainly the stronghold of a kingdom, yet the relaxed body language of the city guard at the gate, combined with the chickens quietly feeding, gives an overall impression of peaceful sleepy contentment. Great work.

Hello, JonathanDufresne.

I would like to feature your incredible painting in my YouTube prediction series on Zelda Wii U: Zelda Unknown (Castle town). I will off course credit your artwork in the description (with Deviantart name and link to paitning), have a bar line on the video itself with your artist name and give a spoken shoutout at the end of the video.

The episode is due to be uploaded on June 11th

Sincerely greetings

I love this city. I get the vibe of a sleepy, but strongly confident empire.
