City of Pillars by drachenmagier City of Pillars by drachenmagier
More Acrylics. Trying out a few other things, though I still tend to struggle with this media. It still feels clumsy in comparison to other media I used so far. Got a few plans with this one still, though. :) Next steps will be done... as soon as I stop playing Theatrhythm... (yay, got Sephiroth. >:3 )

Have been listening to a lot of the Guild Wars 2 OST. Fantastic music, I really recommend it as background while drawing. :D

A3, Canson Paper with Linen Canvas Texture. Works better for me than the boards, it seems. Plus, I can scan it. Which is a huge plus! Acrylics and a blue fineliner.

I really loved this piece because it sets a really nice mood the first time you look at it; mysterious and enchanting, yet foreboding all at once. The different emotions clash, but still are able to work together beautifully.
I thought that your technique was amazing because you were able to capture minute details even with the difficult media and this having been your first time, so 4.5 stars for that!
You also made the colours work really well together, and the different styles of art you mixed into the piece really made it pop and pleasing to the eye.

Great work!
What do you think?

Gorgeous work, I so love the details and magnificent imagery, those stylized clouds just make me sequel with delight!

I perched the print just now, so hope they ship it (stupid quality check... *grumble* just send it already! XD) It will look amazing on my wall, I'll get to see if first thing when I wake up every morning.

Thank you! :D I do hope the quality is ok. So far I did not get the chance to ask anybody who purchased it via dA. Drop me a note, yes? :D That would be really fantastic! (I should have ordered some myself, I know. ^^' But so far I didn't get to it... ^^' )

I did get the print, it looks stunning! Great color :D

 I do wonder does DA let you know who buys your art or just that it sold?

Nope, I just get a "you sold x!" and that's it. :D Otherwise I would already have been able to ask people. ^^ Thanks for telling me, btw! And happy you like it!

Again, glad to hear that. X3
And yeah, it's a bit of a pity that I can't see who is happy about the prints. Oh, well. ^^
