This started out as somewhat of a speed paint but I couldn't help but develop it a little further..

You can also check out the process for this piece at my blog or Tumblr!

The deer looking onto the spirit of the forest looks as though he's in cautious awe of the spirit with its mighty antlers and mystique. The light shining from the center of the forest makes for a great point of interest and invites us in, as we share the deer's own questions about who or what the spirit is/is doing. Wonderful use of color. :)

Beautiful! Interesting starting as a speed paint and adding the line work later. I really should go that route and not get stuck on the line work first and color second.

Damn man. Who do you go about forests. I can draw trees fine, but I have a hard time arranging the trees. There is a pattern, but it's something of a random pattern.

Mmm, I like how different forest paths seems like corridors, and further like chambers. Nice, cosy colours too c:

The storybook approach here is pretty fun and interesting. The green giving way to orange is awesome at creating a focal point. I'm really glad I found this. For someone trying to improve and reach a professional level, pieces like this are great teaching tools.
