Peace by Saimain Peace by Saimain
Peace in the Forest of Illusions. A time before the forest got its infamous reputation, a time when it had a little boy with his flute to love. Gads, this took a long while to shade, and the scanner screwed with it, as usual. At least it's finished!

Did you use any reference for the trees or did you do this all from your head?

is there any particular place where u learnt how to pencil sketch leaves, forest canopies, etc? i'm sure no artist would draw every single leaf unless he's contemplating poetic suicide.

I live in a forest :) Grew up in the mountains, have a room made up like a jungle...I love trees. I paint them a lot in my work. If there's any place I learned to draw foliage, it's the outdoors. There's no special technique I learned anywhere, I've never taken art classes.

This is so detailed, it's amazing. The trees and forest are wonderful, and I can't help but wonder how much patience you have to sit there and do that. I also wonder exactly how long it took you. Just amazing. I love how it has the tangled foreground, and then it sort of calms down around the little boy. Just beautiful.
