This is an excellent piece. Technical question: How do you achieve all the texturing that looks like line work?

Woooo HHOOOO!!!!

That's stunning!!! look at that forest!!! And it works.

Love the lighting on the foreground figure. Awesome awesome. Fantastic mood. Unfortunately owing to the scale of your picture on my monitor, I can't see the faerie or gnome or whatever on the road all that well. But I just assume it's well done too.

Really fine work. It really gets the idea of 'peeking' although they might be adventuring together. But the shadow says concealment a little to me. And the resultant story that would come from that is really pregnant with possibilities. :):):):):)

EDIT: I discovered that you can click on the image and get a much bigger view. Stream it is not a road or path. Made all the difference.

That's got to be a terrible feeling to be lost in the forest. You've captured the experience here. Well done!

I came back to this one a number of times today, just trying to get it to sink in. Of course the painting is top notch, of course the cool green light and the tunnel of the trees around the stream sets the mood and creates a sense of the woods closing in. But the intriguing part is trying to read into it where we are in the story. One possibility:

"Tara walked through the icy water down stream ahead of Jonathan, when she turned to look at him her heart jumped with an alarming pain. He looked so small and frightened sitting by the waterside nursing his cuts and bruises. His clothes had been nearly ripped off during his fall from the slippery high path they had been traveling on.

Why didn't she listen to father's warning not to play in the woods alone? Now they were lost deep inside the valley in and night was falling. She knew that she was responsible for bringing him home. How she might manage to do so, she did not have a clue...."

So well done! The lighting effect is superb. The maiden is very well done. I could not quite get the smaller figure though. Maybe if it was a bit nearer.
