Very nice. Aside from the colors and other things people have mentioned, I especially like how the piece is at a slight angle. Makes it feel slightly off, makes the viewer uncomfortable with it, which lends itself to the eeriness. Actually, this piece reminds me a lot of how I imagined the House of Usher from Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher." Instantly reminded me of how Poe describes the atmosphere around the mansion as having "no affinity with air or heaven, but which had reeked up from the decaying trees, and the gray wall, and the silent tarn -- a pestilent and mystic vapor, dull, sluggish, faintly discernible, and leaden-hued." The quote describes the picture perfectly, doesn't it? Also, the angle of it reminds me of the House of Usher crumbling into the watery tarn at the end. Anyway, once again, very nice work. Should be the cover to some Poe anthology or something.
Hey thanks for the kind words! I kinda like the bit tilted angle a lot. Adds a bit of dynamic to every shot or image. And yes - it fits perfectly Seems I have to read it again soon. That would be a great honor for me… maybe one day…
Hey Jonas, Thanks a lot. Yeah - the image is really a great source of inspiration. And its absolutely interesting what different artist seeing in it. You have some really impressive works up in your gallery.
Yup - hab ich Zwar nicht gerade für dieses und in dem selben stil, aber es sind einige tutorials von mir auf meinem Blog ( [link] ). was ich auf jeden fall mache ist ne art mischung aus concept art/ illustration und Matte painting. Ich nehm also zum Teil phots und bau diese ein. Danach fleißig drüber pinseln - so bekommt das ganze einen realistischen touch und hat trotzdem noch einen illutrativen look.
Tanks again. Maybe talent will help - but its still hard work. I believe that talents makes things just a tad easier. But as said before - most is hard work and the understaniding for the tool you work with. Cheers
