The Heart of the Forest by Artsammich The Heart of the Forest by Artsammich
There's something appealing about creepy ancient forests, I just can't stop drawing and painting them.

Amazing work! Just a question: I'm practicing my drawing skills with speedpaints, so I'm curious how long does a piece like this take you? (Not to compare it to speedpaintings, but just the overall time put into a piece with great detail!)

Hmmm. You make me want to visit this creepy ancient forest! You make it look so pretty!!! By the way... Is that a ruby next to the bones in the rotted tree trunk?

A ruby, or eyes. Your imagination gets to fill in the details.

nice work great mood and interesting shapes i only don't like the twisty branch in the foreground it's too much of an eye-catcher  while thats probably not intended

It is supposed to intrude a bit, and give a sense that you're standing behind something looking onto a scene rather than just having everything out in the open. But I probably could have spent more time getting a shape that said the right sort of thing.

I don't know for sure, but I'd guess in the 15-20 hour range.

Great sense of depth in this piece... Love the little hint of red in the cave as well as the bones.  There's a lot to look at and discover~!

Can my Halfling (captainelciesmith.deviantart.c…) come play in your forest?  As long as there are no Goblins, she promises to behave and not kill anyone.  If it IS a Goblin forest; then you better exclude her from the invite list.

-Really stunning.
