Zecora in the Everfree

It's part 2! But more part 1.5 of The Big Project.

The intention is to display the scale of the Everfree Forest as a grand, mysterious place, which while dark and foreboding, is also the place that Zecora makes her home. This is the first piece I made that used color to distinguish space and that became a bit of a theme in the project as a whole as I worked. I've been so dependent on the sky as a backdrop that it was very difficult to transition into another way of thinking, however the more I worked the more I got used to the idea and, in the end, I've learned quite a bit about composition. Though, of course, there's still more to go.

The full story of why Zecora first is in the zoom in.

This is probably my favorite. The scenery is gorgeous, going from Zecora's hut, surrounded by blue-leaved trees, to the purple depths of the Everfree, where the old Castle of the Two Sisters is.

This series is a cool idea beautifully executed.

Also Zecora!!!

I really think it's a neat idea to release a picture, and then later release a picture where the previous was just a small part. It really does give that sense of 'here's a view... now here's how it is just one small piece'.

I look forward to seeing more!

Is the end of the big project a massive image in which all images are contained?

As viw said in his journal post, this is part 1 of 18 of one big interconnected piece. (…)

So yeah, if you like a picture that is one part of a larger picture then you're really going to like this.
