Fae Forest

EDIT: Changed the lighting a bit and made the lanterns have a pink glow instead of a soft white. Thought it would be more fantasy like that. 

First and foremost, I want to say that I was inspired by Dusk-Of-Eternal-Life by :iconjaygraphixx:. Clearly mine isn't as high of quality as his however, I always love the colors and glow in his works and I felt like this was good practice. 

Secondly, I want to mention that this piece was created for :iconthe-imaginarium: Short Challenge 46

Wow!! Looks like I am on a roll lately. Feels good because I had been participating for a while with no wins at all in any contest. I always enjoy the short challenges and you always pick the best stock for them. These short challenges are always an actual challenge for me but I know they are helping me improve and giving me the confidence my work I need to do better. Thank you! salmon heart bullet Squeeze Hug

Wow, this is a spectacular fairy scene!  The colors and lighting are stunning,
and I am envying that awesome glow effect. Wow!

Thank you so much! I struggle so much with glow effects and this piece took me a very long time. I almost did not make the contest deadline because the glow was giving me so much trouble. The glow kept coming out either too contrasted and bright or it was too dim and didn't look like it was glowing. Part of me still thinks it's a little too bright and contrasted but it's the best I could do. I will continue to practice getting the perfect glow in my work. Thank you so much for the support and I am very happy you like my work. salmon heart bullet
