Commissioned painting. The aim was to portray a magical forest. I drew inspirations from a lot of places but I believe Fangorn and Sintra, fictional and real, are what influenced me the most. I love forests...fantasy is inherent to them. I don't know if it's the green tones, the wind blowing through the trees or the fresh air...there is just something special about them.
I also took a lot of inspiration from the beautiful paintings by master painter Peder Mork Monsted
Let me know your thoughts.

I love the environment. It's very hang-on-wall'able. Reminds me of John Howe's Lord of the Rings work. The figure isn't to the same level.

Awesome stuff as always!
For some reason that painting looks better if you crop slightly from the bottom.
I think it's because that grass doesn't have so much eye candy as the rest of the picture. Also I would take that character off because he is distracting the eye from that beautiful tree.

cheers, Pete

Hello andreasrocha!

What a wonderful eye you have! I have just joined this site, and I must say the level of ability displayed here is superb. At 84, I have only just recently accessed the internet (about six moths now) and it is still very new to me. It is wonderful to see all this creativity from all over the world, sitting right here at my kitchen table. Perhaps I missed it, but what was the medium employed here, if you do not mind my asking?

Wishing you and yours, and all, happy holidays!

Guenn
