'In the deep end of the forest stands tall a statue of an angel. It's covered mostly in moss and vegetations. Is it part of something. I wonder why is it standing there in the first place. Someone built it here as if to honor something. Well the more i stare at it, the more i felt at peace... the atmosphere from my surrounding soothe me and this statue, while broken, still give me a sense of comfort... i like it.'

Hey there.
Was managing a lot of other stuff but i spend a good time to make this painting. i want to give it a more secretive vibe and the feeling of surrounded by deep dark forest but finding a peaceful little comfort spot. I'd like to think this painting is more minimalistic but it gets the atmosphere nicely i would think.
Well i hope you like it! Feel free to share this piece with your friend or favorite it. If you want to keep updated on my upcoming painting, feel free to give a watch! I appreciate it a lot :)
thank you for reading and i hope you have a nice day!

And here again: I really love forests like this one. I like how you used the contrasts in this piece. It gives the scenery this mystical atmosphere and the feeling of witnessing something very private and sacred (as if we were not even supposed to be here to see this but we are and it's a special moment)

Hi! I usually don't comment prickly but I really wanted to state that at first I really hated to see the character in every single beautiful scenery you've painted. That was on the first page of your galla. Then I got curious as to WHY is there even a character there in the first place - the same exact character so I went browse through your galla. 

And wow!! Your scenery skills blow me away!!! Each one invokes an emotion of peace or wonder or both. This one especially hits home really, really hard especially reading the description. It is very personal and I am very grateful I browsed through your gallery.

I somewhat understand now as to why ya OC is in each painting (yes, I read the story in the descriptions) and I find it very endearing as I look at each and every piece. It is like "where's waldo" lols But this is more meaningful than waldo honestly. Having Dr. Rabbit in the painting also encourage the size scale of everything around him - enhancing the sense of wonder of the scenery. 

In short, thank you so much for sharing your paintings with DA and I am so happy I found your art on the DA front page. I really look forward to seeing more of your artwork and where Dr. Rabbit will go to next :heart:

Hello there! Thank you for taking your time on typing such a long comment, i will try my best to respond to it!

I understand if someone does not find Dr.rabbit endearing at first, many people sometimes asked me why he is there, because back then i used to paint scenery that has no character nor context and it just felt a bit dull. So i re-iintroduce Dr.rabbit from my old painting and his episodic story which each painting bringing him to a new area to discover.

Originally Dr.rabbit's purpose is to be a scale for the sceneries he's in XD so you're right on that. He still is right now. I want to make him as someone that can easily be related to the viewer and become their surrogate to the situation in the painting. I want to make it as if the viewer is travelling along with him and reading along his adventures on the journal that he's written on. Also making their own thoughts and interpretation to what happened to the world, who is Dr.rabbit, what is he looking for or his purpose etc. A lot of these tales are shrouded in mystery if you look into it closely haha.

Overall i really appreciate your comment, thank you! And i hope you stick around for his future adventures :)

Great concept! Excellent on the minimalism. did you write that quote yourself? I hear that it's good to have some specific descriptions before drawing.

Yes i did wrote the quote myself, i usually write it after the painting is done. It's pretty much Dr.Rabbit's journal :p
Thank you very much for the kind words!
