Outstanding artwork! I love the pointy tower. For me the surrounding has that specific scandinavian/germanic type of forest vibe! :D

Excellent work :thumbsup:

This also makes me quite nostalgic. It could easily be an animation background, or even a background inside one of those old adventure games which I liked to play as a kid.

Aw, this is such an idyllic sight to behold. It's basically my dream house. :aww:

I can feel the sensation of harmony and peace in the painting just by observing it further. :-)

Wonderful work, and congratulations on the Daily Deviation! :clap:

A masterpiece without a question totally :+fav:'d! :thumbsup::D

Beautiful work! You know someone is a very talented artist, when they can create a building/architecture that has a personality and almost functions as a "character" in the story that's being told. You achieved that, in this piece. The dark shadows in the foreground really frame the picture nicely and bring out the focal point that much more. I also really love the various shades of greens and blues that blend seamlessly into one another; it really creates a vibe/tone for the environment. This is a wonderful composition. You are an excellent artist!

Very nice looking house. Great style and colors.

The only thing that doesnt look right is house sitting basically in river bed... Maibe its not fair critique in this case, but its from person who saw a some floods.

Beautiful! Reminds me of the house my elven magic user had in an old D&D game. But hers was built into the side of an old oak tree.

The house was built to human dimensions as she entertained a bit. The tree was more for her smaller stature, as well as she smoked and didn't want to upset her human guests.
