Forgotten Glory by JonasDeRo Forgotten Glory by JonasDeRo
Don't ask me how long I worked on this... way too long, on and off (started a few months back) I got sick of working on it so here it is...

I got inspired by a sketch of the Udaipur fortress in India which I visited two years ago.

I saved the steps for this piece. See them here

Can you save the steps for more of your pieces? Part of me didn't believe this was drawn, and needed the work in progress to tell that part of me to shut up.

I swear, this is photograph levels of detail, and am absolutely astounded that something like this can be drawn!

JonasDeRo How did you achieve the lighting balance in this picture. Is it from a photo reference?

This reminds me of the mansion from Uncharted 3. (With a little nostalgia from Uncharted 2 - Chapter 7.)

Well, however long it took you, this picture was worth it. I can't even imagine how maddening it must have been to add all that greenery draped across everything. The whole thing has a very peaceful quality to it, but a bit sad too. Excellent work!

Makes me think of a lot of things.   One of them is from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina OF Time -   The forest temple.  But was also supposed to be sanctuary in the future for the Kokiri..~  But also where they fled to when they got away from the invasion that found its way into the village... But the hidden forest.. I think it's called, is a utter protection for kokiri and basically kills all none kokiri.   There is a reallly cool bit on what happened really when link went inside for the first time. 

I realllly love this picture!!!
