"Between snow capped mountains, and through the frozen shadows, over fields of snow and ice, they staggered on tirelessly till they reached their reward. The first glimpses of the Pinnacle cities, stabbing at the belly of the clouds, illuminated in gold by the frozen dawning sun."
This was a whole lot of fun to work on and play with! I've taken a lot of the techniques I've learnt recently and applied them to an original piece (some areas of ir work better than others.) Overall I'm pretty pleased with this. I have the desired scale and atmosphere and the image tells a story in it's own right... my little written piece is just a bit more creativity lol.
I honestly don't really know how long this took me, I started it some time last week, then came back to it a couple of days ago.. Maybe 6 hours?
All done on PS CS5
