Ocean City by JonasDeRo Ocean City by JonasDeRo
I usually don't upload my commercial works, but just wanted to share one with you now.
Sorry for the low-res but I'm not allowed to share the full res files.

This is a matte painting I'm working on, it's the opening shot of a video I'm working on as assignment. The final version will have animated light rays, ocean waves, mist, birds, etc..

The structure is inspired by Mont-St-Michel (only a 6 hour drive from where i live), if you don't know it look it up, yes Lord of the Rings type environments do exist! ;)

I visited Mont St. Michel two years ago. Truly a maginficent piece of architecture. That was the basis for Minus Tirith, if I'm not mistaken.

ah c'est bien du mont saint-michel de france qu'on parle?? ah damn...pourquoi m'avoir obligé à écrire mes commentaires en anglais pendant tout ce temps...lol..si l’île était un peut plus grande ça serait une copie conforme de Poudlard ,mais c'est vrai qu'il manque quelques vagues ,la mer est trop calme pour un temps orageux.

Wow, it also reminded me of St Michaels Mount in Cornwall, but Mont-St-Michel is much more awesome. How funny they have the same names? Maybe they are twinned? *mind boggled*

Amazing work, you're detailing is outstanding.

I'd never heard of that place, thx for telling me and yes it is quite striking the resemblance. However they seem to be connected,
from wikipedia: Historically, St Michael's Mount was a Cornish counterpart of Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France, when it was given to the Benedictines, religious order of Mont Saint-Michel, by Edward the Confessor in the 11th century.

Mont St Michel is such a beautiful place. You've captured the mysterious, forbidden, unreachable energy of that little part time island. Brilliant. ^^
