wow, thats really amazing detailed work! I love the how you set the shadows. The mountains in the background looking very real! It reminds me a bit of the movie "Spirited Away" from Ghibi. The picture radiates calmness and peace
This is very nice, I could go on and on about the detail, but in the end what can I say to a piece like this? Looking over it carefully I only have minor criticisms. One is merely my realism brain exploding at the lack of support on the 'bridge' between the two buildings. But I am no architect. That is about it for major complaints.
On the complimentary side, you understand well that shading is not linear *Cough*Unlikeme*cough*. In other words, that you don't just shade sides of things and stop there. The work put into determining the angles of shadows and the lighting on each section of a building is great~
Also, may seem like a small deal to most, but I like your foliage and grass, looks real and in my eyes, alive.
This is fantastic! Do you mind if I use this as a reference for a project I'm working on? I'm trying to build a community lot for Sims 2 and it's supposed to have the feel of being in Feudal Japan. And this is DEFINATELY the look I'm trying to go for. In any case, great job on this absolutely gorgeous piece. ♥
