Beautiful Artwork.
Reminds me a bit of Faramir (LotR) as he's described in the book. ^^

Corwin! If this is not inspired by a scene from the Amber stories, its an amazing coïncidence.

Corwin? Amber stories? I'm sorry but I don't know what you're referring to. Please do tell :)

Really? what a strange coincidence.
The Amber Chronicles are a series of books by Roger Zelanzy. The key figure of the books is Corwin, a sort of demigod which looks very much like the character you drew. Corwin can create worlds by thinking about them and these worlds are called shadows. During a very important scene in the books, Corwin goes up to a city of shadows at night which looks very much like the city you drew.
He goes there to wait for something, so you can understand why a picture like this named 'To walk in shadows' reminded me of that scene. The person, the background and the name of the drawing all fit that scene perfectly.

Sounds like a series I should hunt up! I was going for a mood rather than basing the painting on any particular 'character', but I'm happy for people to see parallels in my paintings :)

It is worth looking up, its a god series.
Paintings tell stories beyond the authors control. ;) And your very good at painting.
