Lately I've been lacking motivation more than ideas. I'm procrastinating on the story and checking out some tutorial books a little. However, nothing here is a direct result of any tutorial. Again I was very greatful to Rayvn for letting me contribute images to her story, that was great and everyone was very encouraging in support.
This was actually inspired by the opening scenes of a the movie Ironclad, that I watched over the weekend. A movie based in England at the time of the Magna Carta signing. I don't know how historically accurate it is, but the battle scenes were some of the more realistic I've seen done. Great fight choreography, no swashbuckling, and convincing blood spray and screams of agony. I'm not a blood and gore horror fan, but I like realism and this looked grimly real.
Anyway, the true inspiration came in the opening five minutes with the cinematography and landscapes. This is not anything direct from the movie, but is inspired by the 'atmosphere' presented in the images.
Tyrol Castle from C3D. Mill horse, M4s.
Thanks for looking and comments.

Impressive scene! Love the way the path, the trees and the mist draw your attention towards the castle. Wonderfully composed! (have to check out that movie, sounds intriguing.)

Impressive for sure. You're landscapes are just so amazing. Sometimes when I have produced an exceptionally good image it sucks the inspiration out of you for a while. You wonder, how can I top that, do better? You need a bit of distance and perhaps try another genre. You had an amazing run with Rayvn and it can be hard to jump right back in once a big project is done.

Wow...I love this. That ribbon of fog across the water (river?) almost looks like some kind of ethereal bridge. Very mystical and enchanting, Art! An excellent image all around. Glad you saw that movie too! Have you ever seen a movie called "The Eagle"? There are some rather inspiring scenes in that and some very interesting people - the 'Seal People'.

Keeping your muse fed is always difficult to keep satisfied..sometimes starving it is the best way to over come the hunger pains... with that said... The scene above is vast and solid work...After zooming I was impressed with the magnitude of how detailed it really was...Most Impressive Work!... be patient...I have been where your at on so many occasions myself...it all comes full circle at one point or another...(smiles)...

This is very beautiful. How did you get those clouds so low in the valley?

As always an astounding Vue render, Art! I've not seen the movie, but I can get a feel for the atmosphere through your work here. This is magnificent! I think most movies tend to tone down the reality of the battles in those days - I'm not sure most folks could stomach how gruesome they must have actually been. I'm sure they were horrid, bloody affairs. The lack of motivation period will pass. Been there, myself. I'm kinda in one now, actually.. It's more an issue of so many other things taking up most of my time - most frustrating..

What a great render.. one of wonderful adventure and a terrific scope. I loved Ironclad, but it was so intense. I know your motivation will return. Sometimes it seems very elusive, but then is when I know I need to feed the muse a little. :)
