My first thought was "Wow, that's so gorgeous!!" My second thought was "So the magic is to keep you from taking a header down those stairs isn't it?" Hehe. I absolutely adore all the gorgeous realism and detail to this. The woodgrain on the railings, the texture of the tiles. I want to go visit! Wonderful, beautiful work!
Beautiful details you have done all over this piece, even the reflected light off the tiles are seen on the higher walls. Even the crystal ball at the center of the tower has an upside-down image, which adds a sense of reality in it. I can imagine how the outside of the windows would look like, a grand scenery .
Really love the lighting here. One would usually expect a dark and stormy night for something like this but morning sunlight accentuates it just as well. Beautiful architecture and design, and the crystal ball adds a nice touch, too.
that reflection in the globe.... how long did it slow down your render time? it must have reflected many times the windows and then the windows reflecting it and the environment many times over, even if we do not see it... or did you cheat and set it to reflect once?
