Lord of the rings - The forest - Painting by Lasse17 Lord of the rings - The forest - Painting by Lasse17
Lord of the rings requested by ~marstersrules
Something with a background requested by a whole bunch of you >_> xD

As you all know, i don't really do backgrounds... and as you also know, each time that i say i'm not good at something, you guys will just let me drown in compliments..
So this time, I did something i don't usually do, so now it's your turn to try to give me some constructive critique ^^ * sounds fair, don't ya think? :iconlikeasirplz:

Alright, over to the paiting itself..
Since i'm not painting nature, ladscapes and backgrounds as my "speciality", I don't quite know how to build a good "Natural" scene... Therefore, I decided to be a bit more artistic than usual x) and paint more like what i think a magical Lord of the Rings forest feels like, more that what it looks like :iconclassyplz:... .. if that made any sense =P
I also made this as a gift to a friend (who loooves the Lord of the Rings movies and books) so I hope she'll like it ^^
Now, This image is cropped. As a print the image looked good with the characters kind of small and such compared to the great forest, but later on when i looked at it on the computer I thought it looked a bit dumb... so I wanted to get a bit closer.. Hope you guys think it was alright x) anyway, I want to show you the whole image too =P and please tell me what you think ^^

Photoshop + tablet + my brushes ([link])
don't know how many hours, sorry, but if i had to guess, I would guess about 20 or so.. =P so yeah, I'm going to bed now x)

LOVE THIS. I do think Sam looks a bit tiny but over all, this is amazing! I like the colours. Especially the yellow/light brown parts.

For someone who claims to not really do backgrounds, this is incredibly well done! I like how it's rough, more like
a speed-painting look with basic shapes and colours, without any defined forms, allowing the viewer's eye to find
the details... it only draws more attention to the figures in the foreground, the focal point of your image, even if
they are tiny in comparison to the entire canvas size.

I wish you'd worked a little more on the background, I mean those parts that are nearest the (i dunno,) watcher. Right now the bg looks separated from the characters. I like the overall feeling though, so just keep on doing bg's even though they are hard, your images are worth it. :D
