I can only image how much of it is unseen in the mists.
Maybe most people would think of a dwarven citadel being hidden away in the bowels of the earth.
Well, who says one can't climb high into the fog?
I imagine the closest buildings are barracks and gatehouses for a whole company of guards. No one could cross that narrow and slippery ridge, to breach the gates beyond, with a phalanx of shieldwardens blocking the path.

I don't know why, but the moment I saw this I just imagined some huge dragon crawling out from behind the highest parts of the structure, slowly coming out of the mist with that big rumbling noise you hear in the movie theater that make your seats vibrate and it kinda leans forward slowly out of the mist and puts down one paw and looks STRAIGHT AT YOU and commercial break..:meow:.

As the traveller wearily dragged himself along the path he saw the city for the first time. Enshrouded in mist the citadel was large and impressive, its old stone walls defying the ages that had wared against it, its form and structure a testimony to human and dwarf craftsmanship both past and present.

The traveller’s heart filled with gladness, despite his weariness, to think that he had made it here to witness this great sight. Soon he would enter this place of legend and, in his excitement, he hurried onwards towards his goal. As he drew nearer the mists began to lift and more could be seen. His heart thudded in his chest as he suddenly realised his mistake. What he had seen wasn't the citadel, it was only part of the citadel! He stumbled to a halt, feeling small and insignificant in the shadow of this immense cluster of structures. Words failed him. It was beyond his ability to describe.


I am sorry. I'm not sure if this was appropriate or not. You see I can't create with colours like you can, only with words. Your picture set me off and I hope you like it. It is a small tribute to your piece. A thank you for creating something so neat.

Perhaps the green going into plain-air blue is a bit too abrupt but other than that...   ^

do you know what's funny?... I was browsing through deviantart when I came across a thumbnail of this painting, and without having seen that you were the one that painted this I already knew it was yours... I think it's the colours you use lol... you're beginning to develop a distinct style.... your paintings are fantastic... keep it up! =)

I really like the transition from lush green earth to dark, barren land. And then, of course, I’m starting to become a huge fan of things faded in the background. :)
