Sleeping Sun by Deligaris Sleeping Sun by Deligaris
Hello, this is a landscape painting that I was making in my free time recently, between many, many intervals; just playing around with colors and textures. It started as a speedpaint, and then I decided to add more details. I wanted to make something relaxing and calm, so I came up with this one.

Unfortunately I'm incredibly busy lately, working seven days a week, and no spare time is left for more personal projects... But I always try to steal some of my sleep for these, hehe...

Made in Photoshop.
Enjoy!

Your gallery is really stunning.

Is this inspired by the Nightwish song?

I had read a book called Moreta: Dragonlady Of Pern, was very good book. The reason I say this, is because the cover I have for it has similar scene, yet this is much better. This is awe-inspiring and beautifully done. :heart:

I love your works, they're ALL amazing. By the way, did I already say I love your art? I really love it. So much love for it I wanna tear my eyes out and stick them to the screen just to stare 100% at them XD;;

Whyyyy, why are you made of so much win and awsome? It's people like you who make me feel like the little child I am when I look at my own art. You really feel the peaceful setting in this picture with the soft, warm light. And the life! I'm expecting to see the sun creeping down the cliffs and the dragons to soar around. It really is beautiful.

What would be really brilliant was if you made a in depth tutorial describing your painting technique. I believe less talented artists could learn a lot from it. It's not like very many people could copy your amazing style either way.

No problem. I love your art, even though all of it isn't quite my style, but your dragons and landscapes are fantastic. I don't think there is a picture I love more than "Encounter" here on dA. I'd love to see an in-depth tutorial from you. I'll hope you find time :3
