Faeren in a more advanced stage of his Forest transformation, which, of course, gave me an excuse to indulge my love of painting nature. ^__^ You can learn more about Faeren and "The Wars of Avenan" storyline here:…

Great work you do have a love for fantasy art. Is he an elf or a hobbit or a race you made up ? :P

He's my own creation. You can learn more about my worlds and characters on my website, if you are interested: [link] :)

Ah ok thanks did you make that website if so nice. Your characters are great i love them all i read their character Bio.

All your artwork is great i would ask you to teach me but i am not getting anywhere near your standard any time soon.

Where does the inspiration come from for you characters. Do you just make them up. Or do you get inspiration from other fantasy characters like frodo or legolas. Or do you base them on your friends or family members ?

Have you designed a map of the land just to see what it looks like.

After perusing your gallery for a while now, I've decided I can't escape the reality that I'm utterly in love with your passion for deep contrast and high saturation. It brings the areas of light into high, eye-catching relief without being stark, and, for me at least, creates a dream-like sense of surreality that I connect with on a very deep level. Your talent is without peer. Otherworldly.

Magnificent! Ugh, I have the same problem with my pencil-shaded drawings. Scanning washes out the darker areas and eliminates the subtlest of shading.

It's absolutely amazing. Fantastic work :D

I'm sure it's been said about a million and one times, but this is amazing. The detail blows my mind. I can never manage to make such great detail in my own art though I love it so very much. Did you study actual moss for this? Photos? Actual moss?

This forest transformation you mention makes me very interested in your story... I keep meaning to look up The Wars of Avenan (I have the website bookmarked) but I've yet to get around to it. I'm such a bad, lazy person...

Your art is amazing. I just can't get over how detailed and smooth everything is... Excuse me while I clean my chin of a bit of drool.
