Let me first off by saying that this is a great piece of art, it gives me the illusion of being behind him as he walks through this terrain, and the darkness gives me a sense that he is going to struggle. I love the blue mist coming from the deaths of the cave bellow, it gives the guy the feeling of actually being alone when he embarks on this journey through the cave. So overall I rate have to rate vision a five ( it looks spectacular). I seen a few pieces of art relating to this type of subject, but this is great I rate Originality a 4.5. I can't find really anything wrong with the technique, I rate a 5. For Impact I would have to rate this a five, even with out the guy this piece of art would be outstanding.

Whatever it is that he is walking towards reminds me of a sword for some reason. I love the fog around him and the dark aspects of this.

I love the omnious colours and composition - well done!

Wonderful stuff, reminds us that sometimes less is more. I started thinking about Beksinsky while looking at your images. These are very odd places you make.

Love the mood in this, the cold, icy and mysterious atmosphere really comes across. This is really a prime example for achieving maximum effect with rather few strokes... (although I'd be curious if you knew right from the start where you'd take this or if this painting is rather the end of a journey, so to speak, and only looks as if it was done fairly quickly)
In any case, I like it! It immediately grabbed my attention =]

My brother is a short story writer.
Could we use this artwork on a web-page, next to one of his stories?
Full credit will be given and a link back to the original artwork.

Awesome piece of art.
Just-Nick Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2010
I don’t usually comment on popular works as it feels pointless to me, my words simply getting drowned out in the flood of praise the artist has received. I also often avoid commenting if I have nothing constructive to add.

Today I am making an exception; this image is wonderful it is just so powerful. I really feel this kind of eerie mood washing over me when I look at this image. I absolutely love the colour choices along with texture of the brush strokes.

Very deserving of the favourite I’m about to give it.

I had this as my wallpaper for the longest time, and a couple o months ago i reformated my disc. Everything was gone, and of course, my -your- beautiful wall as well...

I have now spent like 2 months looking for it, and now! FINALLY i found it! And it calls for the +fav and a shout out to you!
Lovely piece of art that is now finally my paper once more!!
