Forsaken zanzibar, to the light by lordoffog Forsaken zanzibar, to the light by lordoffog
This a colored version of my last big work: [link]
i guess this is a big change to colour it^^
i highly recommand you to see it in FULL VIEW, because they are a lot of details with this high resolution. This picture is made to be visited in every corners! I'm on it for a great week i think, but it really needed to take time. :nuu: I don't know if i continue coloring it or just let it like it is. aaww, i'm kind of tired now >o< try to find the cat!!! it will take some time i think!!!!!
have a nice day!
also, comments and constructive critiques are welcome :happybounce:

I love this. The detail work is exquisite! I love the way the light from the windows hits the raised parts of the pillars on the left. I love the way the sun bathes the buildings in the background. I love the mysterious and magical blue light in the lower left. I love all of this. Thank you for sharing it!

It's a beautiful colour composition! Your use of colour for the highlights are amazing. In my opinion the shadows could use a little more darkness, for a bit more drama. But I love it. Wish it was way bigger so I could see the details more :D
Love it!Heart Heart Heart

Hi there! I must say this is an amazingly detailed piece and it's definitely worth the DD! :heart:

If I could say anything.. then it would probably be the fact that the transition between the dark blue and light green might seem very sudden on some places..
The pipes have a good transition already and still have enough contrast to stand out from the background.
If the light is coming from the left somewhat there should probably be a light spot on the "bride" in the right as well..
The saturation of your colors is also very high for the mid ground.. I would've kept those for stuff that's in the foreground because now it's really giving me this impression that the right side is close to me but in fact it is actually not even half as close as the left side is.. I guess you could solve this by lowering the saturation a little bit here and there ^^ just what aerial perspective does.

Hope this was useful in any way ^^ keep up the amazing works ;D

If you don't forget to credit me for my work and add a link to this one, i guess you can use my work for your blog, but if it is possible, can you use the low resolution image? because i'd like the full resolution stay here for the downloading ^^
Thanks for asking me the permission.
Is there a lock on this blog to block the download of images?

Wow, I am super impressed. This is probably one of my favourite works I've seen on deviantart to be honest. I looked at a larger version and the linework is wonderful, as are the colours and subject matter. Nice job :)
