Excellent work, really love your palette here! It is also really inspiring and though I often paint in bold colors like used in this one I think such a color scheme would be a good counterpart. I have a concept of a castle waiting in my folders to be finished and I should give it a try... if you don't mind of course, I don't won't to steal your idea!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

This place looks so fantastic I'd like to visit there.
So, I was feeling nostalgic about Dragon Effect after seeing Zevran's sci-fi makeover and decided to peruse your gallery.

I decided I should inform you that I believe this would make a kickass fortress for the Dragon Effect team.

It is now and forever in my Headcanon the Pinnacle, where the team trains and Shepard settles after saving Thedas.
