Sanctuary by JonasDeRo Sanctuary by JonasDeRo
I dreamt of this kind of place two days ago, and the idea sticked with me. It doesn't look exactly the same but the elements are there. Bright sunlight and bright water between four concrete mossy walls.

About four hours Photoshop. I saved steps, might upload them later if that seems interesting...

I'm guessing most of South-side Detroit looks something like this...just with, y'know...more bullet holes and burned-out cars. :worry:
Depressing sentiments aside, I really like this piece. Smaller in scope than your other work, it sets a mood just as well, and contains just as much attention to detail. A +fave for sure! =D

And I'm interesting in sawing your steps, I like steps because it gives me the impression that the work is feasible and may be a day with a little practice, I get my drawing as well.

You might not believe me if I say it but I visited an ancient temple in IRAN (Persia) which looked almost exactly like this. It was called the Temple of Apadana, I think. this is a great work. Any tips for learners??

the problem if you sit and draw there is that you will get all wet... because I'll enter the big concrete opening, where a staircase leads me up to the platform, and from there I'll jump in the cool water, get out and start over. yay
