Warriors - Mothermouth by ClimbToTheStars Warriors - Mothermouth by ClimbToTheStars

watch the speedpaint here : www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeT2o0…
"As they approached the foot of Highstones, the grass gave way to bare, rocky soil, dotted with patches of heather. The land sloped up now, toward the sky. Craggy rocks topped the slope, blazing orange in the sun.

Bluestar stopped once more. She chose a sun-warmed rock to sit upon, flat and wide enough for all five cats to rest side by side.
"Look," she meowed, tilting her nose toward the dark slope before them. "Mothermouth."

Firepaw peered upward. The glare of the setting sun blinded him, and the slope was engulfed in shadow. The cats waited in silence. Gradually, as the sun dropped behind Highstones, Firepaw began to make out the cave entrance, a square black hole that yawned darkly beneath a stone archway."
Into the Wild p166

This is stunning - very Lord of the Rings in scale - gorgeous! :) I was wondering if I could please have permission to use this image in a youtube project? I'm a professional pianist/composer and I write music to accompany book series (I'm mostly known for Wings of Fire - I'm Music Mommy on youtube). I'm starting the Warriors series and am building a fanart portfolio to accompany my music, and I would love to use this piece! I always fully credit and link back to the artist's DA page. I'll wait to hear from you - thanks! :) www.gretchenratke.com

Your technique is interesting... I never thought of using parts of pictures in drawings and blending them in!

yep! it's called "matte painting" - it's used in all the video game/movie industries to create fast speed paints with a realistic look for concept art :)
