The first in a series of five. It's not meant to look like a scene from My Little Pony, but it doesn't hurt.

EDIT: added shadows from the towers. I hope this is an improvement.

 I see you really like towers 

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 8/14/2011 14:50

Thanks. Onek first suggested that the towers should cast shadows on the clouds. I don't think I got it right though. The shadows are too straight, it makes the clouds look like a flat surface. Oh well :)

 The shadows look really nice, and create a great 3D-ish effect on the mountains and towers. I love how they look purple against the clouds too; nice touch.

@ Shiru: Thanks!

@Miumau0: I guess by "compliment, you meant criticism :) But yes, I definitely agree. I'm not happy with the way the clouds turned out here, although I was very impressed with myself at the time.

@Manupix: Thanks a lot. I've fixed the shadows now, as you and onek suggested. I agree about the airship, but forgot to fix it.

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/24/2011 12:07

Very nice colors.

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 7/22/2011 22:03

My only compliment is clouds, they are so cartoony-ish. Otherwise very nice scene and fantastic colorchoises :)

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 7/18/2011 10:09

Very nice!

The towers and mountain have different contrast, or in other words, the towers don't seem to cast shadows on the mountains. The airship looks dark too.

Thanks, guys! Always nice to be complimented by such talented artists.
