I love it. The grainy feeling to is interesting, like an old photo or looking through an old scratched lens. The striking orange hair is perfect. It stands out and gives contrast to the the dull natural colors of the landscape.
Thanks ice. You're not the first person to tell me this. I think people like them without characters because it allows the viewer to put themselves into that place. When someone's already there, it's like their favorite spot is taken .
Fin du Temple de Ligne. Dai hated coming here. Too many bad memories. Although overgrowth and pooled water had turned this place into quite the beautiful locale, the End of the Line Temple was somewhere she'd rather not be. She pushed the memories of her past aside as to allow room for her current task - Collecting the Tome of Guides, a most important tool in the fight. This place used to house scores of intelligent and wise psions - Modern day wizards, if you will. - that helped in creating tools of peace and stability. A few decades ago, some unknown force had wiped them all out. But not before a new generation was born. Dai was of that generation, whether she liked it or not.
And here you go again - another wonderful piece of art. I never get tired looking at your pictures.
I would like to guess: did you do the tiles in the water with the same technique as the leaves on the picture with the entrance to your castle? At any rate, I oove them. As 47ness already said, to put this sort of character into such a picture is quite interesting as well. I do not even feel really disturbed by that figure even though it does not seem to be a good match in theory. It still works in practise
