This is not my thoughts, but I decided to share them to here.
I wanted to portray how I see 1499 world. Before my eyes are distorted, twisted panel houses and random flying things. I believe that 1499 dimension should be a strange world first of all, not an unwelcoming-and-majestic one. Gothic style is okay too, but that's not something certainly right about it.
Below is his abstract portraying.
So if the real-life location of 1499 dimension is in Moscow, then why the structures in concept art dominated by so much of gothic elements?
