I really enjoy your ruins themed paintings, they are all very good at giving a sense of what once was at not only that particular place, but in the background as well!


The old structure would have been a great place to sit by the fire and watch the coming storm pass by. People would sit and listen to the chirping of the rain in the lake and watch as each raindrop swelling the stream and bathing the trees. Alas, it is no more... and now the remaining walls of old can only give the birds some shelter from the howling winds driven over the mountain and over the plains.
The place has long been a memory, lost in the same winds that forever caresses its former glory.

The transition from trees and clear sky to rather featureless plains and stormy clouds from left to right is really neat. I also like the the ruins aren't all super-epic like many ruins in paintings seem to be; everything's pretty tame, but effective; makes the scene quite believable.

Wow, I like concept art and this is very nice. One thing just annoys me there is a little white box between those trees.

Yeah its supposed to be a window in a small wall that is part of the ruins. Maybe i should cast a little light on top of the wall to make it clearer.

Subtle colors, but complex nonetheless.

I want to be able to do stuff like this but I think I'm a couple years off still. I wish I could see where you were two years ago.

[link] All these are pre-2007 work. Although they are traditional paintings in acrylic, i picked up Photoshop in February this year.

I see you were already pretty good at photo-realism back then but you've moved on to more fantastic paintings that really have a sense of atmosphere.
