Memento of the Times Long Gone by Huussii Memento of the Times Long Gone by Huussii
Time lapse: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GySdVl…

Finally caught up with episodes last weekend, watched 3, 4, 5 and 6 all in a row. I absolutely loved everything about episode three, so I decided to do something about the castle. I don't know how I haven't done anything about it this far, it's such a nice thing to paint simply due to all the story behind it. I just haven't done indoor or architecture stuff that much in general.

Yeeeaaah.. All I can say is sorry. Even though Christmas holiday is rolling and I finally have some time to chill out and release steams, I still haven't got myself really active. I didn't even get an idea for any holiday picture and such. Should'a thought one out beforehand 'cause I wasn't home a lot during the actual Christmas days. I can't help feeling bad about it.

In any case, merry (late) Christmas everypony! Hope you had a good one.

Ohmygod this is the first time I've drawn Twilicorn...

Beautiful. :D This looks beautiful as it is, but I believe if you listen to some songs from Lord of the Rings while  seeing this is gonna add emotion and beauty. ^.^ Just saying, since this does look like it can go with Lord of the Rings. :) Especially with its beautiful violin music. :D

Is this from the first Assassins Creed? The stair-setup definately wakes some memories of it. ^^

The palette, dramatic lighting, depth and washed-out-ness give this picture a somewhat Tomb Raider-ish feel (mind you, I didn't for a second think of Daring Do but of Tomb Raider 2013).
The sense of foreboding in those obviously ancient ruins contrasts nicely with the expressions of joy on the protagonists' faces.
Very well done.

I'm slightly inspired by Guild Wars 2 art too, among dozens of other games with great art. Might show through in some areas. =p

Yeah okay way to post spam on a wonderful piece of art. Also, that's a lie anyways, I've seen too many of these things to know they are just lies.

Ahh a fellow Homestuck fan! But the castle he was exploring was on the Battle Field not on Prospit. But I like your idea of the flags being of Prospit and Derse.
