    ... I can't choose which background to use. It's a digital painting and I have sold a few copies of previous ones before. That is of course awesome, but now the thought of what people will think is messing with my head.

    The first one is bright and cheerful. I like it, but it's also a bit cotton-candy-land-ish compared to my usual work. This is the background I have worked with for 90% of the actual painting process, however.

    The second one has some more late afternoon vibe to it. The sky is less bright and that makes the painting a bit more balanced; the background steals less attention from the water and foliage up front.

    The third one is where it's almost nighttime. I find this one the most balanced in terms of contrast between foreground and background. The darkness adds a little mystery (something I'm definitely into) in trade of the cheerfulness.

    Maybe you guys can help me choose?

    PS: Feel like I'm kinda showing a weak spot as the artist here, but asking for help is never wrong right?

    I know you said it's a skycastle piece, but all I can think of is the castle in The Last Unicorn (even though it's supposed to be on the sea). I love it, Pete! You're really so talented.

    Are you doing an expo in Rotterdam? Definitely swinging by then
    This twenty-year-old boy was distinguished from childhood by strange qualities, a dreamer and an eccentric. A girl fell in love with him, and he went and sold her to a brothel...

    Hah! It's in Rotterdam indeed, care to catch a plane?

    New digital painting in progress, 8 hours in. It's still got some rough edges and the left part of the swamp needs finishing, but I'm pretty satisfied with the sunlight and the treehouse. Thinking of making it a mushroom castle.

    Oh man, I'm loving this one Pete. Really digging it hard. The scale is...something...inspiring, magnificent. Great work as usually, but extra great here.
