My last personal work. I've done it to illustrate a AD&D story I'm writing. Hope you'll like it !

Hi Peyop, I like it. The ambiance is very nicely achieved.

The only thing that bothers me is the sun light at the top left focal point, while the sword is at the bottom right focal point. Both are in competition with one another and that is not good because the viewers will not know where to look at. I recommend you to try reducing the sun strength and put a sun beam from the top left into the sword position and put a shine on the sword pommel. That way the viewer would enter the image top left and be driven across into the lower right.

But this is just a technicality. I really like it! Great work.

Ricardo.

Thanks Ricardo. You're perfectly right. But the two informations are important for me in this scene. However you're rignt, the scene would be more balanced.

Thanks again
