Secret Santa [2020] gift for Dracula9AntiChapel - wanted to depict a fantasy sunrise, set in a cold, yet tranquil environment. Hope you all like it, and long time no see PJ members! I will try and get some of my other recent work uploaded here too :)

See here for the dark & lighter version, both looked solid to me, so I had a hard time choosing which one to submit.

Wow, what an awesome scene!

The vibe here is crazy

Great piece Adam! I really like the subtle lighting in the clouds and the rock structure. I'm just not sure with the perspective on the architecture, but it gives the castle a slight surrealistic look.

Wow, Epic!

Dark Souls vibe.

I feel like there is so much someone could learn from this piece. Your use of color, light, composition and form is really awesome. I personally like the slightly darker one from your alternates a little bit more when compared side by side, but the difference is so suble I wouldn't even be able to tell which one you uploaded unless I compared them haha. Incredible attention to detail.

Why, why it is so good

How is this even... wow.
Like stated in the comments, this is a masterclass in pixel art. 
Magnificent pixelling.

Wow! The subtle haze that gives this so much depth, the faint orange that separates the mountains and sky, the balanced but asymmetrical composition... this is really gorgeous!

Nyarlathotep (Level 2 Dealer) @ 12/24/2020 11:35

Amazing scene, this is beautiful! I could stare at it for ages!

Have also been staring at this for a good while, holy smokes. Blew away any ideas or expectations of who or what I might've gotten. Feels like I'm looking at some Souls DLC or something, just wow.

Saying "thank you" feels like a pittance in the face of this piece, but seriously thank you for this masterclass of a scene.

Lik (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 12/24/2020 08:33

Perfectly !

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/24/2020 08:23

You killed it once again. I've been looking at this for half an hour now.
