UPDATE! I resized the picture and made other minor changes. Now it looks WAY better, its not blurry anymore!


My 2nd attempt to a landscape.
I was inspired to paint this after admiring yet an other masterpiece made by the awesome ~Narandel

The Japanese Kanji means "Roots" (on the bottom left corner and on the rabbit's back). It does actually take parts in the whole interpretation process of the work, but I'd like to leave it to the watcher, rather than ruining it with my considerations.

more digital stuff:

Comments and advices are MUCH appreciated ^-^

Are you sure you haven't had a tablet for years and years before starting to upload your digital art? Because this is the work of a pro.

i ADORE the scenery i *cough* mightuseitoneday *cough* the perspective of the rocks in the background is true to life so it is a good clash of surreal and real life image.

i will say though, this does remind me of Tatchit. They do a lot of landscapey things and this looks like something she would do (no offense meant).

your technique again is awesome, thanks to screen sharing i know which brush you usually go for to get the look your achieve <:3 The sky also adds a great effect, instead of a single gradient or black colour there are brush strokes within it showing that you really put lots of effort into your piece.

That tree is perfect. you've caught it's action perfectly giving a sense of movement to the still, harmonious scenery.

As for the meaning..... i must admit that you've puzzled me a bit here XD "roots." hmmm.... welll... Maybe you're trying to convey something about how every event has to have a root, or a cause. but i'm not totally sure XD please enlighten me :3

Dave looks as awesome as ever, those ears!

did you use sharpen? Looks really awesome XD I can see what you diddddid
DavesPineapple Featured By Owner May 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, no sharpen tool at all! When I painted this I didn't even know it existed lol... This is the actual level of detail, you couldn't see it before because dA's resizing system messes up with it a lot...
