Sky palace by IRCSS Sky palace by IRCSS
Another quick painting ^^ :aww:

I changed my PS performance setting recently, so to test it out I decided to do two painting in one PSD and see if it works without slowing down, apparently it does :D so this was just a test each took around 15 minutes; again, sorry about the quality :aww: I haven't refined it.

Some places are not meant to be conquered by man, I guess I had that in mind when I was painting this. For the first time ever since I started to paint, I wish I could be in this painting, at the top of the white tower and watch the sun set!

I hope you like it :hug:

By the way constructive comments are very welcome ^^

This is it. This is very close to what I saw.

Years ago I had a dream that was fantastical and wondrous. There were horse riders clothed with full ceremonial garb each clad in a color of the spectrum riding at full speed atop the stretch of a massive bridge extending from a majestic palace. They charged with confidence towards the edge and one by one they leaped with their horses over the end. They fell all the way down and just as when you thought they would crash into the dirt their decent was slowed and the feet of their horses thudded upon the ground as if it was a mere skip over a fence. Then they all rode off into the distance going out to meet some kind of adventure. 

The painting on the top was that palace I saw.

Again, I could never do anything so quickly. Though I am trying to get faster.

The first drawing at the top is phenomenal. The usage of colors, the proportions... Only thing I could wish it had more of were hard lines and more flushed out sections (more detail) and some strong directional shadows! :]

Thanks ^^ I might detail it further later on, but my hands are closed in terms of shadows since I can not use dark values a lot (to create sense of depth and atmosphere). Thank you for your constructive comment, appreciate it ^.^

How come you can't do that with dark values?

No problemo! Anytime :]

IRCSS Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Further the objects are, the lighter the values are. If I use a saturated dark value color to shade, it looks close to the camera on the canvas. Shading is not impossible however, it just means you have to use other tricks and illusions to define the shape and details of the castle, which requires more skills than I currently possess ^^

Aye, but the moon isn't bright enough to keep the sun from casting some sort of shadows from the bridge/ castle unto the mountain. Granted, not all objects are brighter the further they are from the camera. It just feels too light right now, especially with the sun setting and all. It makes me think that you have multiple suns in the picture.

You should just experiment! :D

^^ Good luck! I'm sure you can do it! Don't get too frustrated or worked up over it, ok? It's just an experiment, so keep it in mind. Sometimes it's easy to get worked up over something difficult.

Great colors! It looks a bit like the ivory tower in the neverending story ^^ (although here it's more a castle of course...)

That brings back memory ^^ I can see the resembles since they are both white, but I did have mount Olympus in mind when I was painting the first one though

Glad you liked it ^^ believe it or not each took 15 minutes only, I usually leave the paintings at this point (which is exactly after painting basic values). However after basic values, I can spend from one however to 10 hours on it. doing texturing, refining the edges, add details and hardcore highlights here and there and ... the more time I spend on it the better the picture will be, but I never do that since the fun part ends when you figure out what you want to paint, the rest is just painting lines here and there.
