Memento of the Times Long Gone by Huussii Memento of the Times Long Gone by Huussii
Time lapse:…

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...

The contrast between lights and shadows in the abandoned castle is magnificent. It brings those feelings about majestic and ancient times with such power. The characters fit also well into the picture with your paintinglike style which I really enjoy! :)

The lighting, sweet Celestia the lighting! <3

Btw I'm going through all your art and favouriting it, hope you don't mind! :D
Badgerhead44 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015
I think you REALLY captured the atmosphere with this one.

Holy smokes!  Look at all that detail!  Those crumbling stairs!  The broken window frames!  The feathers, the scales, the tattered tapestries, and the flowing sunlight!  (DEEP BREATH).  So much!  I'm overwhelmed!

What a fine style you have!  And the persepective of the piece, how everything is viewed at an angle!  The dark doorway on the left and the bright open window on the right add a unique balance, giving both equal weight and attention.  I can even see the texture on the dragons flying overhead.

It must feel wonderful to know that, after so much work and dedication, you end up with something beautiful.  Good job!  Maybe, if I'm lucky, I might be able to draw as well as you one day.

I hope nothing but the best as you continue to create more and more beautiful artwork.

Thank you, ES Stories, for showing me this beautiful piece
SilverWing27 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
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

Gladanos Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2014
Is this from the first Assassins Creed? The stair-setup definately wakes some memories of it. ^^
steampunkpony1 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2014  Student General Artist
reminds me of dark souls for some reason
Celefin Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2014
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
WhisperingBlue Featured By Owner Edited Aug 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes Guild Wars 2 have some good art and i think that your art is good as them :)

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.

Sorry but I had to. I am a very superstitious person. so if I get a chain later I forward it, but I guess that's no excuse.
