Fortrylle by AlectorFencer Fortrylle by AlectorFencer
Fortrylle - Enchant

Sometimes our mind allows us
to imagine a glimpse of light
and colour even in the darkest
places.


A good friend, who is an awesome photographer tried to take a best as possible picture in a very light polluted area where the picture was exhibited. He really tried the best to capture this painting behind the glass and I removed the reflection and noise as best as possible.

The reason was the time the picture was finished because it was the morning before the journey to the MMC (Mephit Mini Con - Germany) and I only had three hours of sleep that night. I seriously never ever expected that someone will buy this large painting of 50 x 60 cm for a rather good price. So I thought I will take it home and THEN take pictures/scan it. XD

Well, it found a new home now. I'm really thankful for it but also a little sad. I wish I had a proper scan or sharp photo. I won't be able to make prints of it so this is the only possibility to enjoy the eye-burning leaves. Just imagine all the details. XD

The painting was done with acrylics and acrylic inks. That was my very first proper acrylic painting because I wanted to get used to it. It's quite a lot of fun I must say! =D

Mephit Mini Con was a blast again and I really can't wait until next year!
I'm heading back to commissions now and try to enjoy the nice weather again.

Thanks a lot for looking! :blowkiss:

The colors and details are amazing. Especially the fur looks so good I would like to bury my nose in it :aww: I also like very much how the leaves fade and are less and less detailed which makes it more plastic for me and underline the almost palpable drakness of the background. Really nice :aww:

Ok..... This is when I feel like total inadequate when it comes to drawing..... I JUST LOVE IT!!
This is that kind of moment that makes people like me improve. I always wants to find out ways to touch up my art, but it can only be achieved by looking up to those artists that are better.

Briliant piece Alector and thanks for being better than me!:D

^^ its an amazing piece, gd work with the acrylics its always a sad tale to let somthing go ^^ i know ive done it, but its always pleasing to know that they enjoy it and will forever cherrish it. i love the colours you have used and gd work with the background (thats the hardest part cos it doesnt always work well with the image) ^^

Hi there!

This is amazing.
The warm colours in the leaf fit to the expression of the wolf. Reminds me of a chimney fire on an icecold winter evening. After ice skating on the frozen lake.

And I love your detailled style. How long do you need to finish one piece from scratch?
