    [ Are the aesthetics of the one in stark contrast to those of the other, or are they in harmony? ]

    [ Is it a meeting of two differently advanced civilizations? ]

    [ Is the mood one of astonishment, or confidence, or foreboding, or excitement? ]

    [ Is the spacecraft come from the skilled technological artisans of this very kingdom? ]

    [ Invader, defender, or passer-by? ]

    [ Some very different ways this topic could be interpreted, as usual... ]

    This was tougher then I thought... and still did not turn out how I'd have liked it.

    40 mins.

    [Edit]: I enhanced the edges, added a sunset, and overall cleaned up the image somewhat. Hopefully this reaches standards...
    The day my image doesn't get turned into a link is a day I'll be a very happy person ...

    GIMP-2-3 hours....

    Want criticism, please =) (concerning shadows, blending, colors, e.t.c..). I think the water is purple, which was "sort of" what I was looking for, but not quite (it's dark out, so I wanted the water to have a darker blue to it...)


    Goran-Such a unique direction, I love very "alien" craft.
    tobbA-This is my favorite perspective so far. I hope you're going to take it further!
    Vanvalen-The creepiest so far, the perspective is nice: it sort of shows the power of the castle and then you notice the power of the craft flying above it, which dwarfs the castle.
    ScribbleCath- A sweet perspective, I can picture going from there to circling around the castle, lower and lower. An epic perspective, very nice.

    @Vanvalen: nice and impressive view.
    @goran: till now my favorite. love the industrial castle.
    @Lennybird: Maybe the atmosphere is more dramatic with an sky which is colored more black-red. Like sunset.

    Lennybird-thank you
    GRETCHEN-Thank you
    Vanvalen-Nice upshot ,you must take more care of your vanishing points ,
    even if they are not in frame,it is some kind of mental discipline you develop with practice.I took the liberty to do small paint over ,hope you don't mind.Hope it will be helpful for the rest of you guys.Boxes are your friend.

    @Goran.. I don't mind paint overs at all ... perspective is a weak point of mine and of course I'm lazy so I usually just guess at vanishing points hehe.

    @Lennybird... Nice use of perspective for the wall..Purple aint my colour

    @Racasdorph ... It's a great Idea but I think you could have made the ship stand out more...maybe blur the background a bit more so it has a depth of field effect.

    @Gretchen... I like this concept... it makes me imagine the castle is designed and/or built to be some form of docking station for the ship above..they fit together seamlessly kinda thing. Have no idea if that was you're intent but that's the vibe I get. Might have been better with a bit more ship showing.

    @Tsujni... Interesting design indeed...

    Done with water colors and marker (my poor little sketchbook...).

    Edit: Dabbled a bit with the color levels and contrast to add the levels of yellow to the scan, that the light in my room added to the original.

    Vanvalen: I really enjoy the perspective! great idea!

    ScribbleCath: Same with you! The perspective gives your piece just that something extra heh

    tsujni: Im alittle confused Is the space craft at the center or is that the castle?
    Keep drawing... And keep painting!
