I am curious to know how long you had been painting when you created Sartene ?
Also, what sort of formal training do you have, or did you teach yourself ?
Sartene is an attempt at a matte painting when I was around 16. It was created in photoshop using photos I took on a holiday. At that time, I had no training other than what I had learned from watching youtube tutorials.
Years later, I took a semester at a classical drawing academy.
