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

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!!!
