Something more matte painting-ish.
Amazing play betwen light and shadows.
Totally in love !
"Love this!" just doesn't express my adoration enough!

WOW my friend...just WOW!
Wow! A wee bit too dark for a sunrise but other than that: magnificient!
Yeah the sky is way way brighter than this during sunrise, but I liked the effect. Thanks!
wow, I would like to pick this to my desktop picture! Nice art piece!!
Amazing! Do you have a step-by-step by any chance?
It was this one that inspired me to approach you about a commission. Fabulous stuff.
Thanks! I have a very similar piece coming up next actually, I'll finish the commission first though
it looks like a photo. awesome work mate! I'm seriously impressed.
Holy Hell it's BEAUTIFUL !!!!
magical and wonderful
So, uh... how long did it take to make? It's just so unbelievably photorealistic my brain is steaming and stuttering trying to conceive the effort needed to create something like this.
6 - 8 hours of fast working.
I used a ton of photo textures for the mountains, and that combined with accurate colors and proper blending is responsible for the realistic look. And of course, Jaime Jones' legendary cloud brush!
Also, the composition can easily fool you, for example I barely did anything to the right side except pasted one texture and did some blocking in, instead I spent much more time loving the main focal point area. Also the fact that this piece is so dark allowed me to get away with much less painting and texturing, if you look at the top of the left-side cliff you can see how I just mimicked the texture of the lower areas of the cliff with quick brushwork, which was enough to give a convincing look.
Man I love this!
Any chance one could purchase as a print? Unbelievable artwork.
This is incredible! And so beautiful
This is so stunningly beautiful, I can hardly take my eyes off it!
Breathtaking piece. Very realistic and good use of the sun light. I love your style.
+1. It's both cinematic and still you can see particular strokes, which gives a very nice "tangible" feeling.
