Ancient jungle temple by Karbo Ancient jungle temple by Karbo
Some more painting, it's been a while :)
A group of adventurers prepare to enter an ancient temple in the jungle. Who know what treasures or perils they will find inside ? Dun dun dun

This one first started as a speed painting and finished into something not speedy at all XD
Sometimes it's so easy to get carried away by a picture :3

Good detail. My eye is drawn to the tunnel on the bottom left which highlights the adventurers. A lot of subtle elements in this. The draping vines are cool and the sunlight in the upper right is cool. Over all quite nice really. I am certainly no artist and I know how much work something like this is. My personal preference would be to have a spot of color around the doorway to accent where the adventurers are headed or maybe some rays of sun through that spot in the upper right. Again thats just me but it might add something.
What do you think?

Hi there Karbo!  I would like your permission to use this as the backdrop in the title-slide of a 2-min promo video I'm producing.  The video is for a project I'm looking to launch on AirBnB Experiences in Seattle.

Check out the 'Wolf Sanctuary' listing -- to see the kind of video I'm making and how/where it will apply to the posting I eventually publish.  (I need this video done before I can post)
So while this is a 'for profit' type of endeavor sort-of, it's a personal/private engagement. (I'm not a company, just a guy hosting an Experience on the AirBnB Experiences platform) :)

Let me know what you think, what you might require (in terms of crediting, or whatever) to get permission for this excellent piece!  Either way, thanks in advance!

This is amazing, I really love the brush work on the vines, must try this out, may I ask, what brushes you used on the vines, and what other brushes you used on this pic? And a Link if you have one, Thanks :)

really awesome! the growth of the plant life here is just so overwhelming! exactly what you would expect in the felaryan jungle. the way you hung the vines and incorporated many different types of leaf forms all throughout makes it very believable.

nice work showing the temple entrance. very foreboding with that pitch black interior staring out at us

the trees far in the background have just the right amount of atmospheric haze to them and remind us even further how huge everything is here when looked at in comparison with the humans

a great piece of world building visualization here :D

Good gosh, those vines! That must've killed you! The level of detail in this really is so impressive - I imagine if you ever painted up one of string-fountain's works it might look similar to this :) Great setting and concept behind this picture; those adventurers just better hope that's no dryad in disguise... Nice one!

These speed paintings are always fun to find- even if they do get carried away in the fun of making it into something bigger!  I still think one of my favorite things in these scenes is just how much of an impact the size of the whole place is- Felarya really is just huge, but even in it there's always a few dungeons hidden away like this to find and try to come out with some treasure heh :P.

'Gorgeous' is really the only way I can think to describe this.  The dark greens create a verdant and tranquil atmosphere, and the temple entrance all swathed in vines and moss just looks so mysterious it's irresistible.  How could you not explore the hell out of that?  :XD:

As usual all the little details really bring this to life, I especially like the little bird nests in amongst the vines.  :D

Ca manque de boobs toussa...

Non je déconne, j'aime autant les décors que les jolies nanas dans ce que tu dessines ^^

Sur ce dessin j'aurais peut-être tendance à dire que ça manque de volume et de variété sur la grande facade de lianes à gauche, sinon j'aime beaucoup.

The poll you made about what our favorite aspect of your work is just didn't seem fair. Just b/c backgrounds weren't at the top of my list doesn't mean their not incredible. They are!
