Palace Concept Art

Hello everyone, I was designing this palace for a personal project. I did the silhouette iterations as suggested by @Josh Sunga and I landed on this design as my final design. I was really struggling with the colors of the palace and I wanted some help with it from you guys. This palace belongs to a very prosperous king. The palace is huge and below the castle live the common people. It is based in medieval (not medieval European just medieval) times and is situated in a deserty landscape (not too deserty like Alladin but with a little greenery.) It has a big river flowing beside it. I wanted help with the colors and if you have any suggestions regarding the design then please let me know as well. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day ahead. PS I have also attached the reference sheet that I used

Hey @Atharva Lotake! It's great to see you exploring more! Seriously, really happy you're sharing how you went through this whole process. I added more feedback focused (again) on the earlier steps and more exploration. Though you have lots of iterations- the design itself never veered too far from an equilateral triangle silhouette. By offsetting my shapes and focusing on distinct variations- there is actually more exploration with just five designs. Even if you stick to the original design- it's always nice to have a sheet of explorations to inform your decision! I think #2 in the color exploration was great so I focused more on trying to integrate your story context into the visuals. Having a cool visual design merged with the purposes of story are the strongest and most interesting! Again, thanks for sharing all your work! I know you asked for color help but I just have to get into shape design first! If you do try your hand at painting this though- I'll gladly delve more into color!

I like 1 and 8 best. I feel like 8 might work better if it's a hot city, or a harsh city, or home of the villain
