Artwork Description

Illustration for Altimer's Cross.
"In ages past, she could care for herself.
She knew every rock and every tree and every stream.
She was the heart of the world, and all the land obeyed her.

But that was the past.

She is in me now, and I help her read the signs.
When the animals flee, I am the tree that shelters them.
When the trees choke the land, I am the fire that cleanses them.
When the fire burns free, I am the rain that quenches it.
And when dark things come, I am the knife…"

-- from "The World Tree"

Medium: Watercolor
Size: 20x29

I agree with what Marina said. Really reminds me of gollum.

I really like this picture. The colors are so soft, yet it seems that danger lurks nearby. The little creatures on the rocks at the bottom remind me of Gollum from Lord of the Rings...lol very nice work!

Oh, and as for the sculpture, it's still sitting on a table in the middle of my room unfinished! I'll get to it sometime, but just been running around so busy lately.

Actually, the poem in this is not mine. It's from the game that the illustration is for. "The World Tree"

But thanks anyway! Smile

I really respect the fact that you have stuck with natural media this long; and yet, your quality level remains on par with even the finest of digital artists.
What a monumental feat of hard work and disciplin it must be to produce something like this with watercolor. You work hard.

Of course I can. My sketchbooks are full of bad ones. I just try not to post those too often.

Holy... It is great! Cold but fresh because your greens, detailed as your all pics, and it seems like a big crossword. With many hidden faces, shapes and stories. You CAN'T do bad pics. And it is sad:))))
