I'm so happy that I found this. I can now take a closer look at those pillars and see which guilds are on them :)

Awesome work as usual. One thing I'm a bit worried about is the reflections of the pillars on the ground. Shouldn't they be tilted mirrored to what they are painted now? It actually confused me, was like the ground was transparent, and not reflecting. Thoughts?

Hey Noah, I realise you may have more important things to attend to, but I was hoping you could take a moment to answer a question I have about this painting in particular. It may be silly, but there's no harm in asking.

I've learnt a bit about focal points and the art of using less and less detail moving away from the 'centre' to further push the point, but thus far I'm stumped as to how far one can - and should - push it.

In this piece you've rendered the arches closest to the viewer the most, and tapered off heading toward the vanishing point. Similarly, while the left side's well rendered, the right side of the arches are almost entirely silhouetted.

I understand why you chose to do this in regards to the focal point, but how did you know how far to go with it? How did you know it was a safe bet to provide almost no rendering to that specific part? Certainly your wealth of experience comes into play, but do you know of any tips as to knowing the boundaries?

Non-artists only look at a picture for 2-3 seconds max, but even the average person will notice blatant mistakes whether they're able to articulate it or not. I'd much prefer to avoid that if possible. :P

Anyway, keep up the great work!

Cheers. :)

Focus on the squint test first. If you can squint your eyes and have everything look good, then you're probably good to go.

After that, spend most of your time on the important things that people will look at. Don't skimp on the other parts, however. Put enough implied detail there so that they won't look there but just assume in their brain that there's plenty of beautiful detail.

A lot of it does come down to experience. And personal preference. Some prefer to detail everything. Some prefer to leave a lot to the imagination. I try to lean more towards the latter.

Absolutely love the lighting, but it find it bothersome that the pillars are o sharp and clean, yet the brick and crack lines are messy.
