This has to be the most worked on painting I've ever done! hope you like it : )
this is one of my favourites from your wonderful gallery.. though he's a tough soldier, he looks like he's stopped to take a break and just dream. I simply love this -- can't believe I didn't leave a comment here before --
Your gallery is great...Can you tell me if this picture is a "sequel" to the "SHOW ME YOUR GOD" picture?Seems to have the same figure and felling.Keep it up
I like amazing feeling of all your images
...and worth it!
Very nice job Matthew.
it's gorgeous, Matthew.. This looks kinda sad and romantic too. The shadows and colours are perfect. Great great work!!
Thanks Scott, things came out quite well in this one, I was given sound advice + had a little luck to!
Beautiful painting Matt. Man, you just astound me with your landscapes, and your lighting on this is fantastic. Great work.
i love how this piece could have easily been just a landscape piece but you must have listened to that little fantasy voice and put the guard and his"mount"fantastic job honestly dont think you could have done anything else to it.
Wow! This has real power now. Great job! I'm glad you labored over it and got it in!
Cheers Simon, and thanks for the help you gave on the lighting on this one!!!
Thanks Rita, I think he might be taking him for a walk!
Cheers Pierre, The help i got was just the best!! AS for the atmosphere there was just a little bit of luck involved with that LOL! So thanks again for all the help I got!
Looks great now. I especially like the mountains, they give a good impression of size.
I had such a lot of great help with this in the wip forum which made it much less dificult to fix! I think I'm going to have to stop painting rocks though, there starting to be in all my paintings LOL!
Thankyou very much James
It is beautiful! love the little dragon
A great piece in a great gallery. Amazing how you could take into account the comments in the WIP while at the same time keeping the magic atmosphere of the initial piece!
I am glad to see this one accepted at last. Its a very good piece.
Yes Matt I saw it in the WIP forum unbelievable how fast you are able to do changes, you changed light and perspective in no time, thinking about all the details (just look at those rocks) I never will understand how you do it!!! However all the extra work you put in this was more than worth it this piece is spectacular! And your sense for realism without making the piece look to photorealistic is second to none another really great work from you!!!
Absolutely stunning, Matthew, the textures on those mountains and rocks are amazing, spectacular lighting too!
