hi there... yes... definitely... i really love this piece, i love the lighting you used... uhhhhmmmm.... you know, you should work harder, because if you continue on your painting, you will surely go far...
don't listen to comparisons because if you live to compare your work with others you will always look for competition... just focus on what you are doing and and a pinch of patience and determination, you'll reach da vinci's level... (^^,) (note: try painting fairies and other mythological creatures... they're great subjects)

O God! Thank you so much. I like Hildebrant's work, so this is for me great compliment. But I still think I have to work hard to be on their level. But thank you for that lovely opinion. Shame on me, I did only one painting from Lord of the Rings even book was my favorite from early age and also love movies. But it's maybe I didnt painted any Lotr scene, because all I ever imagined was in the movies, exactly to last detail or color and I didnt feel need to paint it the same way, when it once was created and so perfectly.

Guest's picture

i wish you had been the one to illustrate the lord of the rings... haha! well, dont know how old you are. more than likely not that old but still this is way better than the brothers hildebrandt.

Hi Jana, I have to add this comment too...the way you use your paint and fashion it is fantastic, how you achieve this affect with watercolour is incredible........but then that is why you are labelled with the name of "ARTIST"

Nazdis. Myslim ze autor mi bude rozumiet.Na tvojom obrazku si fakt cenim ze je krasny a NIE digital.

Thank you Smile I feel that I have to explaine that strange watercolor technique. I needed to modify a bit traditional way of use. I wanted something similar to oils in effect, but I dont like acrylic colors as they dry fast and hard and cant use oils because of smell which disturb my family. So I developed some strange way how to use watercolors. Very heavy colors, doting by sharp flat brush filled with dry color (this can substitude air-brush), many layers and underpaintings, keeping whites by masking fluid and from time to time, when I loose my whites I help myself with white acryl. Results is ... that it is made by watercolor technique but it looks like oils. On other hands there are some limits and you can see that I have a bit unreal pallete.
