if you're selling an artbook for all your buildings &/or city paintings I would buy the book.

O MY GOD. Your art is amazing. Have I said this particular sentence before? You certainly must have heard it too many times before.
This goes to everything you make actually, not specifically this one picture.
I've seen you switch style a little several times. I'm intrigued every time I find out there's a whole lot new ones in your gallery.
I respect and appreciate that you actually paint them, and with watercolours (mostly, I think?).
Details. Imagination. Variation.
Perfection.
You are the most interesting artist here on deviantArt for me.

Absolutely gorgeous. Once again, I adore the wonderful layering of those colors~! The monochromatic tones you use in these truly creates a successful image and mood. The detail is extravagant and I love the little character! It really sets the kind of mood of a giant underground tomb or vacant ghost town. REALLY cool. :) I also love the touch that is seems to be underwater. Keep up the amazing work!! Sorry if I flood your inbox!

Many apologies for the late reply!
And thank you so so much! 8)
It's odd but I'm very happy that it conveys the idea of a tomb. *v* I didn't really want this to be a happy piece so very glad that you view it as such! :hug:

Beautiful - like a dreamscape. Do you have a central vision in mind when you start something like this, or does it just evolve as you go along? It looks like a frame out of story book - who is this young person and how have this come to be there? And other unanswerable questions :) Good work! :trophy:

I do have a small idea of what the picture will look like. For example this one I thought it would be nice to have a child standing at the foot of a large city. But the details are added as I go. <:
