Anno Domini 2537 by taenaron Anno Domini 2537 by taenaron
:bulletred: Anno Domini MMDXXXVII

As little child, I was totally in love with castles and knights. I somehow still like the topic and that is why I tried this picture. It's more some kind of training and practise. But I had fun doing it and I'm satisfied for now with it. Recommendations what could be improved in future are very welcome.

And of course I'm thankful for every kind of comments as well as favs :-)

Vision: Great job setting this piece apart from the vast others that I see. The vision is great because it shows consistency over the entire piece, from the color scheme to the fire and ashes, etc.

Originality: As I said above, this one really stands out from many other pieces. I enjoy the use of mid evil times castle and fire, as well as the loneliness of the winter pine trees.

Technique: I'd say overall this is great, but I can find a few things to work on. I think the border texture should extend all the way through and not stop at the corners. Also, the second highest piece of fire on the long high tower looks a little too artificial when compared to the other ones. I think overall the fire looks great but that little piece in particular could use a little reworking. As well as the fire, I also wonder how this would look with just the small planet up high in the sky and not the larger one, because this one is struggling a little bit for a focal point. I would like to see some reflections in the water as well.

Impact: When I look at this, I am bought and sold. I feel like I am in the dark ages where knights and ladies with long blond hair are plentiful!

Deviousness: Other than being extremely critical to just help you think about certain areas, this is a great piece and it shows you spent a ton of time working on it. Fantastic work, sir :)

Nice! Where did you get the trees and make them so silhouett-ish?

Good Lord Tae this is marvelous I love it. Although it seems a tragic piece due to the castle in flames. Still is breath taking specially the Moon next to it.

i rly like this n i shair ur passion for castles n swords n knights n stuff ^_^
the only thing i see thats kinda out of place would be the fire stick in the fourground, it just doesent look like it belongs there:P:P also id have to agree with priteeboy. the fire stick would look a lil more "homey" if there was a glow type of thing on the trees ^_^

Well, it does. Like, Early SG-1 where most of the people they came in contact with were all medieval an stuff.
You're most welcome.

I was thinking something similar - one of the last episodes of Babylon 5 had a great flashforward to a time where Earth had collapsed back into a medieval state, but was still secretly in contact with space-faring races...

I like it! The only thing that bothers me is the right foreground tree; it feels like it's in the way and blocks out so much. If you move it to where it's not overlapping the castle, then it would be easier to see and analyze. Otherwise, it feels like I can't breathe...visually lol

Very cool. The smaller moon's lighting seems a little off, like it should be rotated slightly anti-clockwise, not much but just by a few degrees. Everythng else looks sweet... hoping for a Lum piece for the next pack from you mate!! <3

Maybe it's just me but it seems that the perspective on the castle is a bit off comparing to other elements in the scene. Apart from that nice piece :)
