Environment of the Week#49 Waterfall City

A city that was once thriving on ground level, with it's location cleverly situated between deep valleys later became flooded due to the movements in the earth's crust. This shifting of the earth's surface brought water from nearby oceans which at first created minor floods. The water level rose throughout the years and the land was eventually swallowed up, but with some of the old city remains are still visible at ground level.

The new city built on higher grounds, can be found hidden high up between the waterfalls. It is said that this is the only place on earth where multiple rainbows can be seen everyday of the year. Some call it the Waterfall City while others call it paradise.

The colors on this look so natural, and reminds me a lot of the color scheme for lord of the rings. Almost a dreamlike quality and very relaxing.

I also like the addition of the rainbow on the right corner. Its a nice touch. ^_-

beautiful work :)
ajha100 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2007
Amazing work on the sky and the lighting! Did you start off with a sketch or just freehand paint? I have NO idea how you can do such amazing work just using Photoshop! (how????)

Keep it up! :worship:
yanimator Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2007
Thnx. this was mainly a freehand painting. I roughed it out all on the computer and didn't really sketch it out. just kept on putting more paints and detail till I got the final results that you see here :)

Very cool Kevin. I must say the rainbows are very subtle, but suit the picture nicely. Top effort :) I don't see many landscapes, but when I do they seem to be extra good.
yanimator Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2007
Thanks! There should be more environments. I'm actually more of an environment artist myself. I definitely have more fun doing them ;)
faramir Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2007
Awesome, looking forward to more then :D
