Cathedral Practice Paint by akirakirai Cathedral Practice Paint by akirakirai
This painting was for a school project where we choose to recreate something from history.

I chose a cathedral :iconohgodwhymemeplz: NEVER AGAIN HNNG felt like chopping my hands off.
The beautiful reference photograph is made by *Pineman, please visit his gallery and give him lots of support!

This is my first time painting a building. Scraps soon, just wanted to update you guys >__<
There were a few details I forgot to add but HEY WHO LIKES SYMMETRY??? And the greatly rushed grass cuz I honestly....with the amount of time our teacher is not giving us ....


program: openCanvas
time: 5hrs, not including breaks

What on EARTH...

The shading is so fantastic that I thought this was a 3D model of a cathedral rather than a painting. Oh my. You have major skillz, yo.
