Artwork Description

This is a concept done for the Lifeless Forest project at cghub.com. The idea was to illustrate a lifeless forest and its inhabitants. It took me a while to get over such a contradiction but this is what I ended up with.

It's a bit inspired by Bouguereau's Nymphs and Satyr painting. Here, however, the forest is dead and so are the nymphs, leaving us with one very sad satyr.

If you are a living naked nymph you might be able to cheer him up. Woe to the satyr whose nymphs all die and he has none left to spy on, the little rascal. Oh well, it won't last long, soon he will die too.

As always- your trees and light are wonderful- and I really want to sit down next to this guy and cheer him up!

Aw, he's so melancholy! Great atmosphere, and you do good tree.

Art at its best.
