.: forgotten stairway :. by vinegar .: forgotten stairway :. by vinegar
took me about 48horus to finish, i think. you can see the pencil sketch for this one here: [link] and close up's here: [link]

i wanted to refine it a bit more, but i had to finish it today (the deadline day).. so it's not what i really wanted to achieve, but i'm kinda pleased with it.. it surely taught me a lot about colors. and perspective.

painted mostly in painter 7, with some touch-up's in photoshop (with custom made brushes) and opencanvas (for little details).
the main problem with this one was that the original size of it was.. too small. it was a4 size and with such an amount of details it was impossible for me to refine it like i should. so next time i'll try to convince my computer it won't choke on a bigger canavs size, lol.

many references used for the perspective (i was just browsing through my "gothic" book, sketching whatever i liked), as for the girl i used myself as a reference (not on the face, though, i don't have any eyelids problems, lol). No reference for the flowers and landscape in the background.

i hope you'll like it..

I think you did a BEAUTIFUL job on this. The colors are pleasant and the perspective is nice. Yourself and people are the best refs for doing a perspective pose. :nod: Even though you didn't get done, I really do like it. You seem to have a beautiful, and captivating imagination. :heart:
