You know, looking at it again, I'm LOVING the water at the base of the castle...
That is water right? A moat? BRILLIANT.

I love all the versions of this so far as you've been working on it. All the same picture and yet all SO different.. it would be cool to see a slideshow of them all.
You know whats cool about that... since some of them seem night time, others dusk, and then sunrise... it would almost show the passing of time as well.
Trust me -- If I thought for a moment that they would actually consider it, then I'd be all for it.
Who knows... maybe the right people will see the final version. Maybe we should start a petition...
Are you kidding? This is amazing, even if t hey didn't go with it, i can't imagine they would be VERY happy to see it. Its great!
Once I finish it up, I'll see what I can do.
Here's a WIP teaser shot of the mountains along the right side. You can see that the hires elements are starting to come together nicely.

Yeah, I'm diggin' this latest makeover! Everything you mentioned, your reasoning, makes good sense. Brilliant, as always.
Ya know, back when Masters was relatively new, and all those paintings of Grayksull were posted on toy boxes or posters... It really had a sense of being epic and overpowering. I'm doing my best to replicate that awe... We'll see how it turns out.
Just so no one thinks I've forgotten...
Been REALLY busy as of late, so it's slow in coming. But it's moving, believe me!
Wow you have taken it to a different level from the first one..Nice job!!
Thanks. I did some random "What-if?" adjustments to the composition and... it turned out really cool -- this is just a section of it, naturally, but it's definitely the focal point, so I figured it'd be something cool to show off as another WIP.
Excellent stuff man!
From my own personal poin tof view, I think you could play with the colours of the sourroundings as it's all very earth like at the moment.
Pink it is!!!
is prime still around? this piece is wonderful.
Just wondering whatever came of this piece. I remember it being awesome, but a work in progress now the images don't come up anymore. It is truely the best design of grayskull I have seen.
