The View From Her Balcony by jjnaas The View From Her Balcony by jjnaas
I wanted to capture the feeling of those late afternoon hours, when the sun is low but still warm, and all the surfaces radiate heat after the sun has been scorching them for the whole day. The lazy hours when even reading a book takes effort.

Technically this is a fantasy pic, because it's some place from my own "Desert Rocks" -world. However, my interpretation of "fantasy" is very loose mix of modern elements and classic fantasy stuff.

Somehow I imagine this girl as the same one sitting on the bed in your space cruiser cabin pic before she left.

To me, this picture had everything to do with the background. She looks like she's been transported to the place in her book - Ancient Babylon.

Peeking.. yeah, I know what you mean. It was unintentional, but works, I guess. Thanks for the :+fav: :D

It took a couple of nights. Of course there's no limit to the amount of details I could still have added.

I didn't see any other plants except the ones on the balcony. Were there some I didn't see or was that building wealthy enough to have them in a desert climate?

Wow, that's really superb. You protrayed the background nicely as well. It reminds me of those old forgotten civilization themes they use in fictional stories. Way to go! :#1:
