Sunrise ruin by JakobHansson Sunrise ruin by JakobHansson
A fantasy landscape bathed in the first morning light of the day.

Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos 4M
Original Size: 14000 x 8000 pixels.

This painting took around 15 hours. I started out with a quick freestyle sketch, and then build up on the detail as I went along. My idea was to create a feeling of some old oil landscape painting, with a bit of fantasy twist.

I love this picture! It looks really dark and foreboding, as if there were trolls lurking under the bridge. If you wouldn't mind, could I use this for a youtube video I'm doing? Thanks, either way! :)

Hi, Thank you very much. As long as it is a non-commercial video you are making, I have no problem with it. Please write a credit (name and link to my deviant Art page) for me in the text as illustrator.

Thanks, Jakob! My video is not monetized, meaning no advertisements and such and I don't make any money off of it, though the video does have links to how people can purchase my music. I hope this is alright with you. If not, I won't use it. Thanks!

Sure, then I have no problem, as long as you remember to credit me as the artist of the image.

Nice work.

I would have increased the contrast at the foreground, making the darker shadows darker still, because the same level of contrast throughout makes the picture look a bit flat.

Yes, I can see the bits in the background where you've reduced the contrast fairly significantly to signify distant mountains...so I know you understand what I'm talking about...I just would have increased the foreground contrast to make the stuff in front really pop.

Thanks for the constructive comment! I agree - its especially easier to see for me now that the image is a couple of months old. (Eyes are not tired anymore) I will keep your good point in mind :0)

I only say it because I've found the same problem in a lot of my own works, especially when looking back at them a couple of months (or a couple of years) later.

But still, it's a nice work. There's some good atmospheric potential in the piece.

Many thanks - I am considering going back and fix a few things - but as you know its always a bit of a chore to go back to something you thought was finished ;0) Take care!
