The Gateway by jerry8448 The Gateway by jerry8448
~o~ The Gateway ~o~

I promised another fantasy pic, so here it is... ;) I tried to achieve a kind of mystical, magical touch without using too unrealistic colors (yeah, the yellow is still pretty extreme) or magical beings like fairies, gnomes, etc.

Hope ya all like it.

As always: Full view please and feel free to comment :)
Done with aiptek 12000u and Photoshop 7, no reference or stock used.

Amazing image. Is this what the Latinos mean by the "Cite du Dieux". Amazing portal. Tibetan or Mongolian I'm thinking.

There used to be an arch just like this one at the university I'm attending. For some reason they removed it but when ever I looked at it there seemed something magical about it. Your work is beautiful and it brings me joy in the memory of that arch

Wow, great detail! I especially like the gloomy sky and the limp flagpole (is that what it is?) and the general foreboding atmosphere of the world outside the gateway. I think if there had been lighter colors used inside the gateway instead of a pale yellow the contrast would have been greater, but it's still completely awesome-looking.

As per usual, you never cease to impress. The effect of the light through the clouds and on the arch is amazing. It truly looks like you're stepping into another world.

As always, I love your work. The yellow is not extreme in the least, it fits wonderfully. I really like the differences in sky coloring, and the change from pine trees to the willow framed by the gateway is inspired.

Could be. For a while I was contemplating on having one of the gnomes sitting on top of the arch.

When I was done painting this, the first thought that came to my mind was that it really reminded me of the yellow brick road from the Wizard Of Oz - minus the bricks... ;)
