Beware the Tides by PhillyBoyWonder Beware the Tides by PhillyBoyWonder
I uploaded a half finished piece a couple of weeks back, it wasn't going very well. So, I pretty much started from scratch.

I've been working on this for so long now that I really can't tell how I feel about it any more. It's one of those pieces that you feel you're fighting rather than constructing.

The title is from a sign I saw on the Isle of Skye as I was making my way to an old ruined castle; it sat on a rocky precipice and I guess it's easy to get stranded out there by the tide. Anyway, there was a large, flat stepping stone along the way engraved with the cationary words 'Beware the Tides!'.

it is so different from the other one, the buildings and light are a lot better in this one, i liked the girl in the red cape better but that is just a matter of personal taste :D

Nice one man. Love that totally still water reflection. Nice sense of height too.

Definetly more atmosphere in this version.

I don't think it really needs anything adding, though If you're looking for suggestions I'd maybe try throwing mr.moon in there, just peering over the lowest point of the skyline.

Some swirling mist perhaps?

I dunno, it's tops, but I'm just throwing stuff out there based on your description like!
