This is an excellent piece of art, it appeals greatly to my darker sensibilities. I love the gloomy, decayed atmosphere, and I shudder as I feel the damp chill seeping into and through my bones. I've never been able to resist gargoyles, and you did a fine job here of integrating them with the imposing structure of the castle. I think what appeals to me most about this piece is the way the edifice seems alive, or unalive at any rate; it seems to stare back at me, causing me to recoil in horror. I find the effect mesmerizing, and it's hard to look away...
kewl im glad you like my creation. i love castles and gothic looking architecture, and i was looking for a straight front shot of a castle, and absolutely no stock account i have ever seen has one, they are either covered by too much foliage, crooked or profile shots. so i just loved this one. the only recommendation i would make is upload bigger pictures
keep up the awesome work.
ps, you're the only stock artist that has ever commented about the work i used.
i was pleasantly surprised
I do have a note on the front page that if any one does want larger pics just to note me and I will up load, I have done it in a few cases when people have asked, but I generally post in a size that is useful for 80% of people out there (we all don't have 21" monitors, eg I don't usually comment on large work from the laptop as I can't see it all, I usually wait till i'm back home and can see the picture b4 giving comments)
As for commenting .... I love what people do with my stock, spesh the ones who use the pictures I really like so if you spend 4 or 5 hours working on a dev using my stock the least I can do is give 2 mins of my time to congratulate you on your work .... some times it can get a bit daunting commenting on 20 devs or so and if I ever get popular in the future and I get 100's sitting there I may re-consider my policy .... Oh and looking around at a lot of the stock artists on DA I aint your usuall kind
