@JJorgie Thanks for looking.
@Demonfyre It actually is a photograph of mountains. Sorry to disappoint if you thought I made that up. In case you don't know... a matte painting is just where you try to paint something into a photograph. It's commonly used in movies.
@Corastaur Sorry but it actually is a photograph of mountains. I was just trying to paint the castle on top of the photo.
As I mentioned before, I decided that I wanted to make it a little more painterly (although I don't think I succeeded quite as I hoped). I kind of lost my way and my patience with the piece as well. So here's what I have right now. I may or may not come back to it.
