Sorcerer's Hill by Kaioshen Sorcerer's Hill by Kaioshen
This was a recent commission done for 3Dtotal that will appear in one of their upcoming books. I had an absolute blast making it and is probably the most fun thing I've ever done.

As always, feel free to connect with me on Facebook. I almost always post stuff on there before anywhere else.

sweet, i'd love to know how you went about making it, especially how the mountains fade in the background, absolutely adore how that looks. all the smokey haziness and fog makes it look very lush and intoxicating

Thanks! It actually wasn't the Hobbit that inspired me during this, but I realized about more then halfway in that it was starting to reflect it a little.

Absolutely beautiful. With our technology, why can't we build places something like this, instead of dull, gray blocks?

Wow... I don't even know how you did this... But the bridge seems a bit unnecessary, and a bit excessive. The fact that its see through makes it weirder.

The arch in the middleground/background was part of the commission, so I needed to have it in there somewhere. It might be a little excessive, but I think it helps bring balance to the composition.

Sorcerer has such an ugly undertone. I prefer 'freelance practitioner.'

wow.. nice composion :) .. but i think the bridge behind is somehow a litle bit a fantasy overkill.. a Rainbow would do it instead to :)
but the rest of the pic just awsome.. and looks pretty realistic ^^

Thanks! The arch was part of the commission, so couldn't really avoid that. I think it helps bring balance to the composition since without it the right side would weigh heavily.
