Good stuff, mate, as always. I have some crits though, if you don't mind ;-)

To the evening temple scene:
The architecture and lighting is brilliant, but I'm afraid the domes and towers lack perspective. For example the top most tower has got the same curvature of roof lines as the towers way below it, which is just not correct.

It just doesn't seem totally right and the painting is not as deep, striking and dynamic as it could be.

As to the sketch:
I like your pine trees quite a bit. That is a custom brush right there, isn't it? ;-)

---
Anyway, as I said, keep up the good work. Am totally looking forward to your Prince of Persia matte paintings. I'm gonna have to go watch the movie and try to discover your shots, hehe. :D

See you,

- Paul

Thanks guy's!
Hey Dudley - sure thing! Sounds just good! :))
Pavel - ahoj, yep, I have to agree, hehe, it is not quite right the perspective, coz I've been just lazy a bit to be honest to do a grid for that. Just fun and practice of the lighting :))
You can see some of mine even in at the beginning of the trailer (city on the green hill-for example).
More from PoP and others come up when released.. :) Thanks!

This is an inspiring image and just got an idea - thank you. ;-) Like the light on forest and the buildings.
