Forest Spirits by The-Hand Forest Spirits by The-Hand
She brought 'em flowers.

She brought 'em food.

With these creatures, she finds solitude and refuge.

Little did she know that beneath those skins of wood,

lurk the evil that makes the forest dead for good.



Here is an entry for the ongoing Cghub's challenge with the topic: Natives of the Lifeless Forest.

This painting really amaze me. Not only for the awesome skills involved (the details are just, wow), the color scheme and the subject itself, but mostly for the composition! There are no doubt that at first glance the eyes will be captured by the girl, then you can "choose" the path that goes in the bottom part, following her clothes and after that the row of little saplings going up with the trees and back with that long clothing strip. Or you can choose the inverse path, either way the eye will just flow very naturally around the paint! If I could rate this i will give it a 10 out of 10.

I love this. It's an excellent piece and, honestly, there's little to nothing I could say is negative about it. It's gorgeous, cute, and eerie. Love your poem to go with it. Gives a nice sense of what's really going on. :D

Hello, Thank you for getting back to me.
I have not problem trying you.
Tell me how you set up your agreements for custom artwork and what it is that you need from me.
I have one question to start with and that is computer animation/art versus print.
I have purchased art from deviant art in the past. ON screen the colors look, bold bright, great dimension, detail etc. When ordering prints they have no illusion of light/depth, dimension etc. I know there are a couple artists that are known for their ability to illuminate, and create real boldness etc. Is this where computer imagery makes things look different and better than anything printed can do? My favorite is Kondakova and have bought her art and what you see on computer is what you get in person. Just your input would help on computer art and custom work. Thanks a bunch
