    This is stunning and inspiring. Very Piranesi-esque. How long did it take you?

    Awesome work! Quite breath-taking indeed !

    Just curious: What was the original canvas size you painted this in?

    And as asked before (but yet to be answered): How long did it take you ?

    All made by pencil and hand? Or just pre-maded brushes?

    Im really practicing perspective at the moment. Is this correct that is is a 2 points perspective? I dont see a 3rd point.

    Furthermore really cool......

    Hello everybody and thanks for your comments.

    Chane: it's basically a 2 points perspective, one in front of the camera and the other one on top, got rid of the third one because of the circle angle of the city . I started working on Painter, once all the basic shapes where done jumped to Photoshop for color correction and detailing. All the standar brushes (spray one, the "chalk" one and the hard edge).

    LightCastsShadows: at the end was somewhere around 4000 wide by 3600, I scaled down for the forum!

    Kristina: Thanks for your comments Piranesi is the father of environments concept art in my opinion!

    LightCastsShadows: Kind of hard to tell, I would say it was a bit less that one week working at home after work.

    Everybody, thanks for your comments! highly appreciated!

    Absolutely wonderful, I just wish the house on the left had a little more roof texture.

    Sweet stuff. Good work, man.

    The only thing I might suggest if you want to push it further is to sharpen up and detail some more of the ornamentation in the foreground. It doesn't matter too much if the background stuff is a little wonky, but a little more emphasis on getting that extreme foreground to be completely solid could really help.

    Oh, and the mountains seem to have some sort of grid pattern on top of them. Intentional? It looks a little odd.

    But still: great work.

    I agree with the comment above, tightening up the foreground would make it look better. Other than that, good job, reminds me of the fort in the lord of the rings, with the big stage thing coming out of the rock at the top of the painting
