Our Forests by Nambroth Our Forests by Nambroth
This is a gift for my husband, :iconeldarath:

As some of my Ustream followers know, I started this back in February and finished it this week to give to my husband as a gift.

Heavily inspired by my visit to the redwoods in Miur Woods this past January.

Painted in Corel Painter.

Are the dragons playing? Like tag? Or are they just soaring? Anyway, it is very charming.

Have you read anything by Lee & Miller? This reminds me of the Tree's backstory, before its world was destroyed.

I do always recommend their Liaden Universe to SF fans (it's like if Georgette Heyer wrote space opera w/psi-powers!) but I did mention that the dragons were *backstory* because I didn't want to mislead you.

I like very much your art! That's why I proposed that dev to my new group :iconart-collection: , hoping you'll accept.
Of course you are welcome to join the group; you'll find there a collection of the best of traditional/digital drawings and paintings.

Wow, I just found you and I'm already in love with your work!

Very nice, I love balance you have with detail shown and left out, it's perfect. The lighting in this piece is wonderful. I tried to paint a forest scene like that once. Yeech, it turned out awful--muddied the whole picture up. That and I used a brush for the leaf shapes, it was awful. I think my problem is wanting to put too much in and yet still take shortcuts.

Thanks for this picture, it's inspired me to revisit the one I messed up and try again.
