Legendary Tree
With this design I created a harmony between the varied and strong contrasting colors, which is located a Legendary Tree in the center of the scene, which includes the surrounding environment.

Please comment my work, i love when you stop some time to look at it and you give me a feedback, i think it´s very important for me.

I hope you like it, and I am also grateful for those who give any :+fav: and / or :+devwatch:

Greetings and have good days.

I almost overlooked this work initially, thinking it more simple than it actually was. Then I looked through the stock you used to create it. I am very impressed by the work you have put into this manipulation, the stock is almost unrecognizable and you have blended images seamlessly. The use of the grey clouded sky instead of a solid blue also adds a sense of realism in contrast to the unrealistically proportioned tree.

I love the colours you have used for this piece, it creates a sense of tranquility and majesty that is amplified by the subject material.

The only criticism I have of this piece is the shape of the tree's foliage. To my eyes, it is a little too even and almost mushroom shaped. I would have loved the foliage to have had a more natural spread, similar to the original stock.

Thank you very much for the crithique and the kindly words!!
I put unfair because i think that this image has a high impact reaching good colours, contrast and quality.

I totally understand that, the only reason I gave you low impact was because as I said, I had overlooked this piece. The only reason I considered it more closely was because I had to vote on it for elite artists. That's when I realized how much work you had put into it :D

Well, the shape of the tree is very evocative, is what catch my attention, but I don't have any idea about how exactly is this done anyway, it's 3D, Photoshop over a photo?
belez's avatar
only photoshop... the tree its a collage from 1 tree and some mountains to create the trunk. A lot of effort and patience.

"A lot of effort and patience."

Yep, it absolutely looks like that, even being and ignorant about the techniques to do this ;)

Fantastic looking image. Even though the colors are numerous and widely varied, they all seem to belong which is a neat accomplishment.

This looks so seamlessly put together. I love the colors and the contrast of the dark tree against the colorful sky.
