The background painting by AndreeWallin The background painting by AndreeWallin
quick mattepaint I did, figured it might work as a bg. I know it's pretty sloppy in places but I just had two days to spare so.. oh well. Inspired by Dusso

Have a lovely weekend everyone

***EDIT:
This is a mattepainting, which means I've used tons of photos and "stitched them together" and mixed it with regular painting. So when I say it is sloppy in places I am not trying to be arrogant, I'm just pointing out that the integration of some of these photos could be a lot better and that some of the detail work doesn't look completely realistic.

Reminds me of a castle in Syria, Krak des Chevaliers. Mostly just because of it's positioning up on the hill.

Very nice... I especially like the clouds. :)

This is amazing! Beautiful landscape paint :) so crisp and clear. Nice job here

So mattepaint you use photos with paints, I never knew that. Though I probably should have..

Is there a difference between mattepaints and photo manipulations? Is one like more painting rather than photo? Just curious, I used the term photo manip on someone's mattepainting once and they got really offended (even though it was a compliment) :paranoid:

Mattepaintings are usually large panoramic landscapes. Photo manipulation can be a lot of different stuff ofcourse, but in the case of a landscape that still looks like a landscape and realistic we refer to a matte painting. It is also widely used in cinema for backdrops.

Some of the mist and stuff isn't perfect, but it shows the vibe really well, i like it.

Yeah, but your posting this on dA dude. The majority of your audience here isn't composed of peers, just amateurs and fans. You come across as arrogant when you speak like that.

I'm sorry to hear that, it's definitely not my intention to come off as arrogant. However there are indeed alot of peers on this site, and also a lot of potential clients and when I'm putting up something that I find sloppy I will most likely let people know that.
