Weeeeee, it's done. a new matte painting. haha, this was a lot of fun to do, and as you have read so often from me already, it started out from an exercise piece :slow: I just wanted to do a simple extension of THIS stock photo, but then...kinda went further :giggle:

I hope I succeeded in creating a somewhat mysterious landscape and feeling....it was fun to paint in all this construction in the middle, give the sense of something going on there...here's a bunch of close-ups for you, hope you enjoy them.

A huge thanks goes out to ¢mynti who helped me a lot with her critiques and suggestions, you're quite a darling! :heart:

Anyway, print will be up soon as usual, enjoy everybody, and tell me what you think!

oh and, wish me luck, I want to submit this for exposé!
Daniel :heart:


PS: I have spotted quite a few rips and copies off my pieces on the net, lately...I almost decided not to post this so large, but I am hoping for the best...so please if you spot this posted by anyone else off and on dA....note me. Thank you!

I'm glad you like it, but I am afraid that I won't post much bigger resolutions than this. I have had my work ripped quite a few times already and with higher resolutions we're entering printable sizes, so....yeah, probably not, sorry. I hope you understand =] In any case though, thank you for the compliment =]

Your work will always be ripped no matter what. Can't you post just monitor sized resolutions? You have this in the wallpaper section

Yeah but if they were bigger, people might not just rip and claim them as their own, but they could possibly turn sell them as half-decent prints. And there have been such sites before.
And I really don't want to watermark my pictures, I think that would be a much bigger detriment. =]
