Artwork Description

Another of my favorite themes, is the night and if i can combine it with an ocean then i know its going to be an illustration i will like very much to work on.
This picture depicts a waterfall lake wich is located exactly in the middle of an ocean like a hole in it. I have another picture of this place wich it´s not finished yet, but you can find a sketch of it in my Sktechbook area on my webpage. The tower in the island is a beacon to guide the saillors in those boat creatures into the monastery wich is floating in the distance. Actualy this tower was inspired by the Ivory Tower from The Neverending Story movie, wich i love.
This began as a sketch to illustrate a story but it ended up like this as a big size drawing.

I think this picture is great! I love the drawing style and the imaginativeness (spelling?). I really like it because this is not like the "typical" fantasy art I`ve seen Smile

been a while since I visited your gallery at elfwood but I've loved your style of illustration since I first saw it three years ago. It always fills me with child-like admiration. I just want to step into those worlds and explore - which is my definition of what a real fantasy image should capture.
The tilted perspective you've given gives me the impression that we're possibly sailing on one of those creatures?
