It's odd looking at this because it looks similar to a picture of a Cathedral that I've seen, it was surrounded by sand and ravens.

The other odd thing, I've seen things like this in my dreams. It's so crazy sounding but ugh! This is absolutely beautiful and yet, so horrifying to me all at the same time. This was beautifully done, I would like to ask you more about it but maybe not right this second.

Nice job.

first step to worship, you started fine *-* :worship: I'm feeling a the oblige to visit your profile and check out your gallery. This work, with its story, deserves forever praise! every detail I could catch at fullview amazes me so hard, the game you played with daylight and the cathedral's shades... the towers, the doors, the bridge, the lake the trees, the gates... the loner one coming in. God, you deserves SO much more than praises, faves and I don't know what else can you gain from Deviantart but... I'm faving, with all my heart =) I actually have a little passion for cathedrals XD

hope is all right with you now (after reading your story about so much you lose).

cogratulations, hard work here shows an artist's love, strenght, will. after all your troubles, you could finish The Soullsess Cathedral.

Damn! This is by far the best 3D art I've seen on DeviantArt. I love the dangerous look, and the sad undertone in the picture. Soulless is an extremly good word. Fits perfect! What kind of material did you use? The bricks look way realistic! Great work, just great.

Sometime the most powerful feelings can create wonderful things. :)

Your skill surpasses even the great Da Vinci, by far. A Masterpiece worthy of the ages. It captured my interest the moment I saw it. Incredible. Thank you, great Artist, for you are one of the few who can claim that title rightfully.

This is the epitome of "realistic" 3-D. I honestly would have thought it was a photograph, even after close scrutiny, if you hadn't said otherwise. I can only say that this is one of the best pieces of 3-D art I have ever seen.

I'm sorry about the story behind it... I pray it works out for the better.

It looks so real, like a photograph. It looks familiar to me, is it based of a real place?
