The Colossal Trees by JJcanvas The Colossal Trees by JJcanvas
VIDEO PROCESS - [link]

Hello!

I made this image about 1 month ago, as part of the workshop I made for this months issue of ImagineFX. If you want to read the step by step workshop make sure you go to www.imaginefx.com and buy the magazine !!

The task was to create an epic scaled fantasy forest, hopefully I succeeded!

I also recorded the painting process and since the magazine it's out today I think it's ok to share it with you :) Make sure you watch it in HD!

I really hope you like it!

If you were, as you say, going for "epic scaled fantasy forest", you certainly succeeded. While your Yggdrasil painting might have more grandeur, this one just has so much character and atmosphere. Keeping the foreground in forest was a good touch - it makes me feel as though I'm outside looking in. Great.

why can't trees that huge exist around here?

Because not enough nutritiousness for it ground... and gravity doesn't allow such a tree grow, I guess so :P

i like colossal trees. i think there should be more of them. maybe we could even genetically modify some regular species. of course i know that that too, would have its negative repercussions in the ecosystem and we would end up being a species that lived under giant trees that covered the earth. but that wouldnt be so bad, in fact i would prefer it to city living that for sure. anyway long story short i like your picture.

I just stumbled on your gallery and it's very inspiring. Great Work!

If you don't mind a suggestion... If that character would be two/three times bigger, it would add a lot to the overall composition.

I just cannot... comprehend, that a human being could do this. I mean... it's so detailed, and even if it did take you hours to do, I just don't see how it would ever be possible for someone transform a white canvas, into something this amazing. This complex. And that doesn't apply to this painting, it applies to all of your paintings. Keep up the amazing work! :love:
