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.

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!

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...

Oh my... this looks amazing ! I really like the heavy atmosphere here and you did an amazing job on the lighting here ! I really like how there is a hint of a hard blowing wind as I'm looking at the tree in there (: And I haven't mentioned it before but your rabbit character has a really interesting design, something about it really catched my attention ! I just wandered through you new uploaded artworks and I see him appear in very interesting and alien envirionments :] And here it really gives me a feeling as if I'm looking at a whole other kind of dimension with the glowing cracks in the rocks, it also gives me a bit of a feeling like the character is lonely. The cool colors really add to that feeling (: I think you did an amazing job here, you're definitely on the right track! Keep up the great work ! (;

Really, thank you a lot! Since you're one of my favorite artists here on dA, your comment really made me happy and proud ^-^
I still can't thank you enough for all the links you sent me, those really helped (and still help) me a lot improving in what in my eyes still look like a completely new experience.
And for sure, I will keep up my work, every day I spend time painting, and I'm getting more and more addicted to it as I try to do my best to improve.
I really wish to reach the skill level of artists like you, and seeing your awesome works always makes me want to keep practicing even more (:

Again, thanks a lot, your comment really made my day ^-^

No problem ! You really deserve every compliment made. You did an amazing job on this and I mean every word I said :D ! It's amazing to hear that you are getting more and more addicted to digital artwork with every piece. I had a couple of people who wanted to give up more every painting, so I'm happy to hear that you like it even more every time you draw something. Keep hold on that and you will grow better even faster along the way :) ! A positive attitude is definitely one of the keys to improve (;

Ohh I'm currently figuring out how the whole livestreaming works (: ! Sadly my computer tells me I have to install the newest internet explorer.. but since my windows won't update anymore I can't install the new version.. mweh :[

When you're starting with your lifestream, please tell me. I will definitely visit you when I am online at the right time :D !

That would be great! And a quick advice...get Firefox or Chrome, those are waaaay better in any way than Explorer (:
Also, I've just ended a livestream literally 20 minutes ago, I did like a test stream to see how it worked, and all went well! (I've also finished an other landscape live, I've just posted it on my gallery)

And for my livestreams schedule, I'm thinking on doing them regularly, maybe every weekend or so...and probably someday next week, since I still have a week of vacation (:

I just installed google Chrome, it's indeed a lot faster and it seems that deviantArt is a bit less lagging with it, thanks for suggesting it c: !

Oh I'll go check it out then :D ! I sadly don't have a lot of time the upcoming 2 weeks due to a deadline for a project I'm working on ): But I hope to set up things for my lifestream as well when the deadlines are behind (:

I really love this, and I'm not sure how to express why. There's so much I can interpret about this piece that it's really fun to think about. (:
I do love the landscape; with the streams of light that appear to be directing toward the rabbit. And the tree below him that looks like it's going to blow away. I like that tree.
I'm curious what your story is behind this painting.
