Yggdrasil II by JJcanvas Yggdrasil II by JJcanvas
Aloha !

So I decided to make a refined version of a previous speed painting I did some months ago!
Also tried a bit of a different style then usual!

I hope you like it! :)

EDIT: There seems to be some confusion, this is NOT a speed paint, this is a detailed version of a speed paint I did some time ago. :)

Would you mind if I used this painting in my article on

This is probably one of, if not THE best picture of Yggdrasil I've ever seen. I love it! By the way, is it ok if I use this as a profile or cover pic on my facebook page? (Will obviously give credit to you.)

What would you charge for the cover of a novel?

So beautiful! I absolutely love this!
angelwerks Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013   Digital Artist
This is just amazing - I have a fondness for majestic trees, and Yggdrasil absolutely fits the bill. This tree looks truly massive, and the washed out colors as it gets father away show that size, as do the waterfalls and tiny figure in the foreground. This is lovely.

Ah! Yggdrasil! Reminds me so much of one of my fave games Dragon Quest 9! Ah! beautiful work! Your work is so inspiring!
SAGANOGEMINI Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Amazing. I didn't need to even look up at the title to know that's Yggdrasil. =D

Muito bom. (quem seria a mulher pra vc?)

I have featured your beautiful work here [link] :D

The way you add details in the tree doesn't make it for me, honestly... Even I feel like the concept/speedy one better than this refined edition... Not to say I can do any of it, just IMO. The speedy one already own a place in my :+fav: folder :thumbsup:

Great creation.

Oie Blinck :P eu a chatear de nove, .. o brush que utilizas para fazer as folhas da árvore, eu já vi a utilizares várias vezes, mas eu n encontro no teu pack D: , de brushes podes dizer-me qual é plz? os teus trabalhos tiram-me do sério juro, por mais que eu tente fazer uma imagem complexa assim, eu não consigo D:, eu acho que visito a tua página umas 30 vezes por dia .-. *Stalker* XD

Amazing! The little girl with the red hair and white dress makes this over the top beautiful!
PandaInSpace Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
People say I can get better with lots of practise, but I still don't see how I could ever produce something so good as this. It''s just simply stunning in every possible way.

Well done.

truly beautiful work!!

Absolutely stunning. I know one thing. That would make a sick tree house. If there was one, I would move into it. It reminds me of the cartoonnetwork show knd, but it is so much more awesome.

Awsome piece!
Lothrian Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, wow! I am so blown away by this! It is totally beautiful; and by a strange coincidence I have been working on a series of (as-yet unpublished) fantasy novels for years in which the tree of life (Yggdrasil of course!) is regularly spoken of and witnessed by characters in the stories - so you can imagine how this makes me smile! Your imagination is wonderful - your Yggdrasil is far more hauntingly beautiful than the image I have of mine. Glorious!! :)

Bit tiny :) but beautiful nonetheless

I'm really loving the work you're producing lately! (Maybe it's because I'm biased with the WoW stuff d: ) Love the palette, the details, everything! ((: Can't wait for more <3

Good one. I like the mood and the color palate.

The spirit lights are a nice touch.

strayfies Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012
I love it, and the girl in the foreground is a great little concession to the colors.

As always, gorgeous. Really gets my imagination going :)
Safier11 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012
Question, is there a specific reason you usually always have a little figure in your paintings?
BeastieBox Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012  Student Digital Artist
They probably do it in comparison, not just so people compare out the size, but that kind of comparison also fills a person with the magnificence of the landscape.
Safier11 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
^v^ that's what I figured, but I was curious anyways.
bugfacegard Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012
Your work is great. character feels so distanced.
Yomarli-MG Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012
Beautiful. a great artist.
DSteffi Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Student Writer
Beautiful work! I love your concept of small waterfalls running down from the roots of the tree. Awesome art.


All the effort is pointless if you don't believe in yourself.

A continuation of "A Stranger in A Strange Land"? Cool :D
