Ming Dynasty by goldfishkang Ming Dynasty by goldfishkang
-- You may reblog this at my tumblr here --

We were supposed to do a surreal matte painting of the Ming Dynasty, but I think I didn't do the surreal thing very well... so I added in some jellyfish. Jellyfish make everything look surreal lol.

This painting made me realize how much more I love drawing natural environments, rather than cityscapes and buildings. For some reason all those straight lines really put me off. ;_;

I love the way that you've thought of setting this landscape out, with the water and the land, and then the tall mountains - it is really beautiful!
