Corridors of Light by BettinaMarson Corridors of Light by BettinaMarson
Thought I might enter this into the James and the Giant Peach contest, as it's a theme that comes to mind when I need to escape from the real world...

This was originally just a realism practice painting, but I ended up going slightly overboard on the details and think it turned out pretty nicely. :) Eucalypt forest scape in autumn based on the more enchanting aspects of my home land, with monach butterflies. I made custom brushes to get the texture of the tree rough and bark-like, and lots of tiny grass/plant/flower brushes as well.

This is glorious!! The movement of the butterflies are so stunning it's like i'm looking at a photograph rather than a painting. The light is fantastic, and the background is perfection.

Thanks. :) I rejected the invite because I don't really create art that is medieval-fantasy related. So you wouldn't be seeing any work on the subject matter from me. Thanks for the invite all the same.

This is more than amazing, really. The colours are so warm, the scenery so dream-like, and yet realistic. Like I could slip into this image any time. Beautiful.

You're most welcome, and I must say that though your earlier pieces are quite nice (from what I could see) it's always a good feeling to progress. (: Again, beautiful art.

Thank you! In my final semester at uni I spent much too long on my tablet refining my skills. It's taken a long while to get my digital painting skills to a level I can say I'm happy with! Thank you for your kind words, they truly mean a lot to me! :hug:
