When I first seen this piece, I already felt I wasn’t qualified to find anything at all wrong and still couldn’t. Also whenever I do provide a critique I like to study and reflect on what I get from this wonderfully created works of art, sometimes it be days when I decided to start and post my critique, because I don’t take this lightly.

Enchanted Forest; just looking at my fellow Deviant artist name Ellfi piece, I first see entrance where it’s given inviting and tranquil welcoming all who wants a peaceful sanctuary, whether to use this forest as a means of thinking, crying, releasing anger, to help one make an life changing decision

In addition I’m “Enchanted Forest” has a touch of antique mosaic. Also there’s this group call “Extreme Details” where there purpose of being is all about artwork with excessive amounts of detail within. I mean along with the scenery, you have animals taken shelter or made a lifetime homes within the trees, there’s fairies flying around, vegetation.

Also there are even horses running in the background of this entire piece and all of this in black and white, in pencil??????? Could you imagine if this was done in coloring, with the skillful shading?

Lastly this artist needs to not only know but to understand that she has a rare gift, I’m honor in having the opportunity in getting to her through her works of art. It is my hope and prayer that she doesn’t give up this skill, don’t never let folks who are negative opinions sway her and that she continue in this journey seeing it to it’s destiny.

May God Continue Blessing and Keeping You in ALL of Your Endeavors.

This is so beautiful.  I love art in black & white.  There are many hidden sketches in here & the more you browse, the more you find.  I love all of 'ellfi's' sketches.  These are some of the most wonderful illustrations I've ever seen.  Look forward to many more!

don’t know if the artist stays in touch on deviant art any longer, but this drawing is being downloaded and passed around for people to colour. i always wonder if the artist has given permission as it doesn’t say anything on the piece.

I'm intrigued that the trees in the center seem all dead :ohnoes: The picture reminds me of 17th century medallions, with a luxurious surrounding to what's really showed, which in this case seems like a dead forest

This is absolutely stunning in its beauty! What an amazing artist this is, to get thousands of tiny details in so perfectly. I'd be almost afraid of coloring it in just for concern of somehow masking those fabulous details. So, so gorgeous!
