'Masyaf was an isolated mountain municipality, located in the Orontes Valley in Western Syria. It once served as a base of operations for the Assassin Order during the High Middle Ages. During the early 16th century, however, it was captured by Byzantine Templars.'
Matte painted from a base photo. There might be something wrong with the perspective.. I didn't use any perspective plate/lines reference for this.. dats why. Used more than 10hours to finish this.. looks like I need to practice more on my execution speed. Feel free to leave a comment as well as CRITIQUE. Full breakdown and Case Study on this piece of work is coming soon!
