Для конкурса "Волшебный лес"
For the contest Magical Woods CONTEST BEGINS!!! (Important Update)Hello everyone of Magicalwoods!
Finally our contest will start! Both MilicaClk and me collected some prizes and we're happy to announce the theme.
But first I want to thank my now co-founder for all the help in managing the group! Thank you so much! :love:
:bulletblack: Now for the contest theme: MAGICAL WOODS - The spirit of nature.
Since it's our first contest we thought it should be something about our groups' name. So create a creature that you think stands for nature. A spirit that's either a guardian of nature or maybe represents nature itself. You can be quite free in the design. It can be a dragon, an elf, a pegasus or unicorn, well in fact any creature you think fits best as a spirit of nature.
:bulletblack: Here some basic rules for the contest:
- You have to be a member of MagicalWoods.
- Your entry must have a background, not just some splashes of color.
- Please no mature content or too much violence.
- You can submit up to two entries, though you cannot win two prizes. S

Первоначальная идея была такая: расширить границы моей зоны комфорта и нарисовать что-то нетипичное или неожиданное для меня,  что-то более сказочное, нежели просто корявые деревья, которые бывают в лесу.
Возможно, эта идея будет воплощена в жизнь, но чутка позже. С:

The idea is this: the magic in the inhabitants of the forest, ie inhabitant of the forest and makes this place magical.
And in my painting, the story of magic wood  can think out the viewer.
Man in a red cloak - a magician guardian of the forest. Or the spirit of the forest... or something else. What the viewer sees.

Red cloak perfect contrast with the green foliage surrounding :D that's why it's red. But you can come up with something in this vein: in trouble people know that salvation is near, seeing flickering through the branches silhouette red shades.
Thus Magician-guardian (or spirit) becomes a good character in my small and primitive stories.

And of course, I can add that this character more often children see . Because Magic exists only when  we believes. C:

I wish you all
the magic of winter and the holidays :hug:

В данном случае волшебство леса передается не через его внешний облик, а посредством "загадочной" фигуры в красном плаще, которая медленно шагает по зеленой траве.  И в данном случае, сюжет  волшебства может додумать сам зритель. Допустим, фигура- это чародей-хранитель леса, которых обходит место своего обитания проверяя все ли хорошо вокруг. Или же это дух леса.
Красный цвет плаща отлично контрастирует с зеленью окружающей листвы :D именно поэтому он красный. Но можно придумать что-то в таком ключе: попавшие в беду люди знают, что спасение близко, увидев мелькающий сквозь ветви силуэт красных оттенков. Таким образом Чародей-хранитель (или дух) становится добрым персонажем в этой небольшой и примитивной истории.

Ну и конечно, можно добавить, что этого персонажа чаще видят дети, нежели взрослые. Ибо волшебство существует только тогда, когда в него верят. С:

Желаю всем волшебных зимних и новогодних праздников :3

"I remember a meadow one morning in May.
With a sky full of dreams that sailed in that day.
I was dancing through green waves of grass like the sea
For a moment in time I could feel I was free."

P.S. Что-то как то криво перевела... кому не трудно, помогите мне.

Your choice of themes and unique blend of colors are magical, soothing and unique. The first thing that came to my mind was red riding hood; never has a dash of red conveyed so much. I haven't read all the posts but is it only me ?...
