The Sanctuary by MyNameIsSwann The Sanctuary by MyNameIsSwann
I wanted to try out something new as I've never painted any scenery or buildings/structures before. In other words I didn't know much about what I was doing when I painted this, but I enjoyed it :D . Hope you like. Comments and critique are most welcome.

oh man this is fantastic. it looks so lonely and abandoned, but at the same time it seems like a silver lining, a haven in neverending nothingness. this really touches and comforts me in a way i didn't expect and makes me wonder what the crow might stand for in this world. this really made my day man, very inspiring, so thank you for this great piece of art.

I like it,but I would prefer the same scene set at dusk.
In my opinion would be epic.

I can say I like this one.
In all itīs grayness effective and not too bright nor too dark. I like the idea of some building standing in solitude and you can see thereīs nothing around it. I would really encourage you to continue paint scenery cause in my opinnion in this pic the scenery works really good.
This also reminds me of album cover (and actually whole art) of In Flamesī Sounds of a playground fading ([link]) which isnīt bad thing at all.
I would really like to see similar pictures: some road and/or telephone poles that lead to nothing or adandoned house in same kind of scenery.

Thanks a lot for the insightful comment. I'm very fond of abandoned structures and images that generally express desolation as well :) .

It was my pleasure.
And you happen to express desolation and abandoned strucktures really really well. Or least I get that kind of feeling when looking the deviation.
