Beautiful lighting, the horses are as carefully rendered as the men,  outstanding little details that make an army camp under the shadow of a castle.  Love the night sky, too.

Thank you! The horses heads are actually some photos copy and pasted with some careful painting over the top to match the rest of the scene. I didn't want to paint them from scratch :) Same goes with many other details here. I'm glad you like it though!

Yay! I finally get to see some more of your wonderful work on DA. THIS one is especially lovely. Everything, from the figures in the shadows to the drape of fabric on the saw-horses on the left is gorgeous. I can't quite make out what is happening on the lower right, but perhaps something is mis-registered on my computer. Anyway. This is wonderful work.

Thank you :) I actually uploaded the wrong version.. I fixed up some stuff in the bottom right for the final version. I'm glad you liked it enough to look so deeply :p
