"The southeast of Vvardenfell" caught my eye while browsing, the round shape of the gate was standing out, surrounded by colors promising a wonderful palette. I was not deceived a second as I full viewed the whole picture, staring for a moment, simply amazed and pleased.
The colors feature mostly shades of blue contrasting with the sandy brown and orange shades of the foreground. The style is absolutely splendid and makes a great use of quality contrast to allow detailed elements such as the smoking mudcrab to stand out in the middle of barely sketched plants.

The composition is nicely balanced with a great work in the placement of elements and masses, and lighting as well. The gate and its view on the sea are really an invitation to enter the picture, sell some costly Daedric armor to the rich mudcrab and swim to the Telvanni city in total defiance of dreughs and slaughterfish.

This narrative illustration is about perfect and is a wonderful tribute to Morrowind and really the kind that keep this world living beyond the game. Feeds your nostalgia... :)
For this I do thank the artist for making it and sharing it.

This is what I will show my friends when I attempt to describe the feeling of the Morrowind culture and habitat. The beautiful skies, the creatures and the architecture. I love that pipe.

I love this picture. It is funny (he always was my favourite merchant along with the Creeper! :D ), and I love both the mood and the painting style of it!
The only thing that is probably a little off is the lighting. I am not certain if the light is coming from the moon or from the tower behind, but if it is comming from the moon, then the color of the light should have more of a colder tone, now it is too yellow. If it is coming from the tower, then the whole picture should be much darker I think, and the shadows should be sharper. There are hardly any shadows on the picture now.
But this is only my opinion, and this is a great picture otherwise! :)

Wow, that composition is stunning. You've done really well bringing the warm colours to the foreground to bring our eyes towards the crab, and the blue complements it so beautifully.

This is the usual round brush. translucent)
You must render clouds from large to small forms. The edges also have to draw a fine brush. And do not forget the lighting!)
On the Internet a lot of tutorials on this topic)
