Winter's Keep by ReneAigner Winter's Keep by ReneAigner
Entry for the Illustration of the week activity at conceptart.org.
This is the briefing:

'Far into the mountains it lies. On a clear day you might catch a glimpse of it, near the top of the coldest peak.
Winter's keep. Its frozen spires stretching towards the pale sky. No one knows who raised it, only that they're long gone.
It's gates has been frozen shut for centuries and no smoke rises from it's chimneys.
But rumor has it, that on the coldest night of the year, when it is so cold that no one dares venture out, an eerie light can be seen patrolling it's battlements.'

I think you did a good job with the fog, it shows just enough of the castle that we can appreciate it, but hides enough of it that it is lent a mysterious air and we want to know more.  It goes very well with the text, you did a good job replicating the atmosphere.  I think it would have been cool if you had done some sort of obscured human figure on the battlements, only for the sake of the text.  However, I realize that this could potentially detract from the whole abandoned feel of it, and it looks simply amazing as it is.  Great job.

It seems so real to me, enough for me to sense the chill in the air. Beautifully done.

Not enough adjectives to convey how nice this piece is.
