    Amazing work Lane! A nice study of Frazetta's work you def did it justice! Gonna be stalking this thread for a while!

    This latest illustration has kept me very busy. I had no idea from the start it would require 40ish+ hours. Though mostly that's due to my redrawing elements over and over, never fully satisfied. (Not to mention a corrupted PSD file which erased 8 hours of work >.<)

    This was a private commission. I was given a description of a city in a fantasy story. To sum it up: "Aqueos is a port city surrounded and entangled by an overgrowing forest. Though once pristine, it has now become a refuge for pirates, smugglers, and invasive tree growth. "

    I first provided the client with 4 rough sketches. The focus of an entire city is very broad, so I needed to find out which perspective the client preferred. I could try to capture the entire city, sacrificing the smaller details, or I could focus more intimately on a street-level view. The later option would leave the full scope of the city to the imagination, but potentially capture more life and energy.

    She chose option #3, indicating that the building could become an inn which is prominent in the story.

    I struggled with this one, but I suppose that's a sign of learning and, hopefully, improving.

    Fun fact: For this single image, I have 9 progressive (backup) PSD files. adding up to 1.4GB of hard drive space. Time to reduce that..

    I adore the first painting you posted. The gesture gives me Princess Mononoke vibes. (:

    Aqueos looks excellent! I just noticed the two cloaked fellows by the inn on my fourth view.. well played. Your palette is really successful too. I rarely see secondary colors working so well together. (It's the green and orange that don't get along in my mind - I think the boats do a great job of creating a transition between those colors here). If anything can be added I think it's a bit of atmospheric perspective. You have a ton of depth set up already through overlaps, value, and lost detail, but the edges of the castle and the mountain texture are pretty similar to the foreground. Apply that blueberry study..!

    Damn good work all around. Everybody loves your color but your values are real solid too. And I see you putting a lot of light/warm areas in the middle ground with shadow forms in the foreground of your environments. N C Wyeth did that a lot. Conscious decision?
