Castle Of Juno by Narandel Castle Of Juno by Narandel
Hello everyone. A new painting which i have been working on for the past week on and off. Concept for the painting was pretty much a medieval fantasy themed environment with mountains, castles and birds :) Really enjoyed setting the lighting and atmosphere for this piece. I feel that there are certain things that i could have done better, but im going to call this piece done and move on. Hope you guys like it!

Wow, truly love the whole look of the picture, almost looks so realistic. You know I do these kinds of pics myself but I can only draw them because I lack the skills for digital painting. You wouldn't by a chance do something like request or commissions?

Awesome piece of work and way beyond what i probably ever will be able to paint like. A small point of constructive critism is that it confuses me a bit that you have put the sun between the mountains shining through misty clouds. Yet there is a couple of clear points that seems to be lighted from opposite side of the sun. Since it might be fantasy there could be more than 1 sun, however even that fact seems unlikely. I understand that it becomes problematic getting all the details highlighed here and there, but just something you could take into consideration for future pieces. Again, good overall job. :)

Thank you very much for the critique. What you have highlighted is not wrong at all. But coming from a design perspective, most artist including myself practice something called artificial lighting which esentially is placing light at certain points of interest in our paintings to attract the viewer's attention to them. Yes it could seem as a mistake, but it could also work towards an aesthethic direction as well. Definitely something i could look to work on in future paintings!

Oh, I see. I get the point but if that is the case, I think I would try to camouflage it a bit so it is less obvious. Make the "unnatural" lighting be some soft light reflections or whatever that still highlights what should catch the viewers eye. Anyway I am far below your skill level so I'm not saying it is easy to create the proper balance. Anyway I'm happy that you reflect on my oppinion.

While the image as a whole is very nice, the castle is more of a photomanipulation than anything else. That's clearly Schloss Neuschwanstein with some minor changes...
