Alikened to the Forest by AlectorFencer Alikened to the Forest by AlectorFencer
:::FULLVIEW PLEASE:::


As most of my recent pictures, this one started as a playing around with colours and brushes because I wanted to get used to digital drawing and painting again yet I had the Plant Spirit in my head all the time.
This one was done really quickley.

I don't have so much to say what explains the picture because it is a random "happening" again. I didn't plan it.
It is roughly another concept painting for my story line. If you can remember one sketch of my sketch dump about the plant spirit, there is a very similar to this one.
There are more pictures in my head about it and those will be planned and better described.

For now, I just can say that I love mos so much hence I put as much as possible into the picture.
And yeah, I was depressed earlier today and moaning how well concept designers can paint backgrounds and foliage and now I did this picture without reference. Funny, isn't it? XD

I think the banana shake I made today helped me a lot to push up my fantasy. lol

this is beautiful. How long did it take you to draw this and do you take art classes?

Hello!
Wonderful picture, one can perhaps get permission for it to a page called Stallet.se? It would be so nice = D

I'm really enjoying how you've used this wolf being tied to the forest in several pieces. "I was depressed earlier today and moaning how well concept designers can paint backgrounds and foliage"
That's how I am feeling right now. I'm working on painting a forest scene in gray scale, then I'm going to try and use blending modes to get color in to it. I'm really worried about how it's going to go. I'm going to try and find some guides that can help me out a bit.

This looks so peacefull, so acient, like all the living things have found it's place and coexist with each other. And yet, I still can't help but thinking about new life...
No doubt, this picture touched my heart roots. I feel so calm, so content.
Beautifull composition!

I think my heart stop beating for a minute there O_O'
When I did see this my first thought was: I want to be there in this image rest of my life, live there to that day I die so I can be a pretty bush with nice flowers so I can be a part of this wonderful forest

I wish that place was real :]
I'm in love with all the contrasts and green colors, the composition is very good as well :clap:

Wow. That's amazing, I could hear little birds chirping. Very, very impressive. But by this point it seems all you have to do is glare at a piece of paper and it will automatically create art, now won't it? :)
