Brunnhold by thundercake Brunnhold by thundercake
I've never done a successful "big" environment before.. this is as close as I'm gonna get with this, I think :P

This is Brunnhold, the University from my RPG Thorns. It's made of a stone that looks like it's on fire whenever the sun hits it. The name means "red home."

Before I met `memod, I didn't understand landscapes too well... I think you should try speedpainting... in two years I went from [link] to [link] a and I feel more comfy now too :D

You have a lovely sense for people, but you can surely work on your environment work - it will help you tell your stories better, I think :glomp:

Keep it up! You've got a sweet gallery!

Hrmph.. *does not approve of the comparison* :P

It's the outlet for the aqueduct, the one escape route when the gates are shut, though right now it's got a heavy grate on it.

Wow... That is simply amazing. It's almost as if you are really standing on a hill over looking that city.
I am pretty much at a loss of words here... Man... I could just see myself sitting there every sunset and sunrise just looking at the sight there. Very, very nice.

Ahhh, your paintings are so pretty. They're very smooth, but without being overly soft and fluffy. This in particular would be an epic wallpaper. Actually, it will work as one on my laptop, the resolution on it is tiny =p

It worked on my screen. It's a bit too wide but you can see most of the college. I might upload the hi-rez later, but I'm always wary about uploading big unwatermarked versions.. =p

Yeah there is always that type of fear... that's why I always place my sig somewhere in a picture. Sometimes nice and hidden, but yet can still be seen if you look for it.

Holy shit this is awesome. I love the lighting and that super natural bush in the foreground. Is that a drainage pipe in the front or a tunnel/road? Or river being routed under the city etc Oh and that atmosphere in the bg is super great as well <3

It's the outlet for the aqueduct.. it's sort of a river, but it's brought up in the university by a well. It is the ONE escape route. :D

Exactly...well, I like to leave options open.. :D don't wanna be one of those game designers that's like "this could never happen EVER EVER no matter what!" so I fit in all these little nonsensical architectural details in case anyone wants to have any fun.
