Spirits of a Town by JoshuaNel Spirits of a Town by JoshuaNel
Finally finished this one! :dummy: It's been sitting in my WIP folder for far too long..
18 hours in total, photohshop.

This painting I struggled with for a loooong time, I think I managed to pull it off in the end..
It was a load of fun working on this though.

I'd appreciate any feedback, crits and so on! :la:

I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I like to just stare at a work (Art class penalized me for using the term "piece" for technical reasons...) and examine all the tiny little nuances that some might overlook and I love how you added the little circular holes in the buildings and the little lanterns ^_^

I almost forgot the artwork was actually about those dragon-like spirits for a moment, due to the skillfully crafted architecture XD

Those clouds are really well done and give a nice atmosphere to the environment, while highlighting the dragon spirits.

The whole work has a very oriental or chinese-esque quality to it, especially the dragons.

I wish I could invest the time to improve my painting skills (digital or traditional)

"Great work" sounds kinda cheesy, but it's what best sums up my thoughts, so:

Great work ^_^

Thanks :) Ah well piece or work, it's all the same to me.

It's always great as an artist, to know that people spend time to really take a good look at my work :)

Just 30 minutes to an hour every day, spent wel,l will get you far ;)

It can sometimes drag on a little PAST an hour if ya know what I mean ;)

Getting in that "Zone" sometimes causes long hours and lack of sleep XD

Well at least I've got some more time now :3
