This is Gnarlwood. Home of Gnomes, Dwarves, Fairies and hyper-intelligent blue shadows ;)

Had the luckiest painting session ever!! I'm really proud of this piece, because I had enough patience and bollocks to get over that frustrating zero-point where your painting is becomes a big blob of undefined shapes and has yet no depth or perspective. But I went on and now I feel so relieved, I can't tell you. At least I made a picture I would hang on my own wall. :w00t:

Working time: 'bout 12 hours
Tools: Wacom Intous A3, PS CS3, Aspirin

Please don't steal. It feels much better to practise and have your own success. Believe me!

EDIT: THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THE DD !!!
Referring to my last sentence above, now I really can tell you how cool it is to get rewarded for your own work! This is very encouraging. MERCI BEAUCOUP!

Since I had to dig through my old deviantart account to find this image again I thought I'd let you know that I've kept this as my background for probably 5+ years now. Thank you so much for making a piece of art I hold very dear to me that makes me feel at home <3

UWAAAAAH!! :'O

I love this so dearly! Your attention to detail is captivating in this, and your clever use of objects and things we are familiar with being used in an unfamiliar, new way, is just awesome. I especially like the heart-shaped porch lamps ;P

:blush: Thank you so much for that nice comment (and the :+fav:s)
I still makes me happy to see that my picture has an effect on the viewer.
If I just could draw people as good as you, I could populate my magic woods.
