Environment study





Heres a quick rendering from one of the color keys I had in my last post. It's nice to work without a sketch sometimes, I find it allows my work to be looser and sometime more creative. Although not entirely rendered to the last bit, I didn't feel the need to take this piece any further. The cool thing about places like Hawaii, and some remote areas of the world is that the forest is so thick and un-touched that it appears almost opaque, like the trees come together to form one enormously dense blanket. Such un touched areas was part of the inspiration for this piece. Rather pleased with it, any suggestions are welcome!

I love this!
I love the story you added with the boat and the pathway. The key was already good, but this took it that extra step!
Really nice!
