Woah, now this is something special. I just love how the style creates this otherworldly dream aspect -  like this is a fragmented memory, the trees and grass shifting in an out of time. 

Seriously clever stuff.  Any chance of you making this into a print or up for sale on the store? I'd defo get this canvased and put on my wall. I rarely say that these days.

Again, well done!

Thank you!

I can put it for a sale as a print here on DA, or on Artstation if you had like

If you put it up on DA, I would be more than happy to buy it. Just make sure it's also available as a canvas print. I have another friend who is willing to buy it and support you. ;)

Hello, I uploaded it here on DA and made sure it fits into all frames. It should be ready to go. Sorry for a late response, I was gone over the weekend up until now.

And thank you :)

Thanks, Quintus, I'm just waiting on a few competitions to resolve before getting it. :)

Sure, there is no pressure :)

I am looking to alternate options, to find cheaper one.

Its fine. I want to go for the more expensive one by choice. I think it will look great on canvas

You've got a terrific style. This is wonderful work on the shape and light. Great take on the events!

Thank you!
I would like to paint more historical events sometimes, about Rome.
And I like your history artworks too!

I'd really look forward to see that.

I think your style is just right to fill in the mood and setting with light and shapes, yet leaves enough space for imagination.
I always love pictures that are both loose and yet precise. Love doing history, too. Just as well I can do it in 3D 'cause I can't paint ;)

Sorry I didnt reply for such a long time . I was gone over the holidays.
Your 3d is superb, it shows that you have ideas and can put them together. So I'd really like to see more too

Don't worry, I always struggle to reply within the same century ;) 

I come from writing, and even though I did some drawing ages ago, my level of skill never kept up with my imagination. But I got a bit of theoretical background of visual arts on an amateuer level, and it helps with 3D, too. 

3D has it's drawbacks, though. A painter can (given the skill, which is both talent and hard work) create a picture to resemble the way a person perceives the scene in his/her head. Maybe you could say the expressionistic and impressionistic component. Your picture is a good example on both parts.
3D is more like photography and bound to certain rules. Some things can be done very easily, like more or less correct anatomy or perspective or details. But creating light as a human perceives it as opposed a mechanical implement like a camera quickly teaches you a thing or two... In your picture you create focus by the levels of detail, tones and saturation, which is part of the skill of course, but goes well with the medium, whereas 3D tends to spread those evenly and you have to work against the medium to some degree. Oh well - that's the fun part, at least when it works out :)

Writing? Do you write short stories or a book? Do you have anything posted online?

You are right about the artistis expression. But I think you can achieve the same in a 3D.
I saw one of your latests uploads, Witchwinter: Helluland. for example and it's great.
It's pretty atmospheric. (If that is a right word for that).

Would it be hard to create an animation from it?


Photography is bound by rules, true.
Problem is, that I bound myself with unnecessary rules too and I am sometimes too afraid to step away and try something new.
It's an ongoing battle in any art form I guess.

I think I'll put up some stuff up here after translation and illustration. It's long stuff, but since part of it takes place in rome and some provinces from 70-50 BC, you might as well have a peek ;)

Actually the software I use can animate it, just the rendering times are prohibitive on most rigs.

Translation? I see you are from Germany! So we are neighbours.
And I will gladly take a peek. Rome is great

Hey me too! I love Roman empire, even had a few pieces of equipment and armor for a reenactment.
I love the late Republic and the early Empire era the most. And I don't think that Nero was as crazy as people like to think he was..

XD we all love Nero, but Caesar... my favorite!
i love the early Early era too, especially the evolution of the legions and everything related to battles.
