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!
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.
WOW!! I love this one even more!!! The boy kind of reminds me of Naruto on the tree on te first opening but the trees, How to sketch like that?!!?! It's extraordinary!!! The tree kind of resemble Magic: The Gathering type of sketches for forests...
