Ravnica Blue by Fyreant Ravnica Blue by Fyreant
I'll admit it, I think Blue and Red are my least effective Land cards for Ravnica. Thing is, as an artist, you don't get to decide which of your pieces is the one people dig most. There will always be creations of yours that are close to your heart and very few others will "get" them. Other pieces that you might consider throwaways end up being fan favorites.

Remember this when you put your work out there, and if someone comes up to you and tells you how much they love one of those pieces of yours you hate, bite your tongue and smile. You succeeded in kindling something wonderful and it caught fire. Let that make you happy.

After all, it's not the last painting you'll ever do. Even if you hate it, you'll gain nothing by saying so, except to tarnish the compliment you're being served.

Ha ha you don't have to lake a painting for it to be good, this one is amazing (and I even have some magic cards of this island).

I really like the general feel/style of the buildings. Reminds me a great deal of MYST: URU.

The roughness of the buildings and the texture really give it this rusted/ water worn feel.
I'd much rather have someone love something I hate than hate something I love.
Beautiful view... How much do I dream about walking on the streets of this ecumonopolis...

Sage advice my friend. And admittedly, I do enjoy the color composition that you've put into this one. The reason why being that it has a variance that makes it stand out moreso than the somewhat monochromatic look of other land arts.
Great! wonderful colours, fantasy, compo, light contrasts..

Funny how you're saying people hate this, but the comments contradict you. This is a wonderful piece and you should not be ashamed of it.

I just love how the colors go along together so well. And the architecture style is really inspiring!:clap:

You may not like this scene but I think it is wonderful and inspiring. It reminds me a lot of Waterfall City from Dinotopia. I can just hear the thunderous waterfalls and feel the mist soaking my clothes.

Wonderful job! Thanks for sharing your talent with us.
