Through the ancient valley by JJcanvas Through the ancient valley by JJcanvas

2014 EDIT: Refined some things for a new PRINT, which you can get HERE -…


Here's a new piece, showing a girl starting a journey through an old valley. Definitely got some inspiration from LOTR :)
Decided to upload it on a higher res so that you can get a better feeling for the scale, which I wanted to be pretty epic!

I really hope you like it! :)
Tell me what you think!

P.S. - I don't usually complain but I hate the fact that DA has an almost white background, which kinda messes with the values of the artwork...and now it has this stupid Holiday "free shipping" ad that is almost on top of our pieces! Pictures should never be viewed in this conditions :(

Through the ancient valley by *Blinck The Suggester said: "The sense of scale is simply amazing, as though you've already been swallowed up by this very world. You can tell there's adventure ahead, but there's also a lingering sense of danger. Full view is a must.". ( Suggested by Rhandi-Mask and Featured by Atramina )

I saw this on a beautiful musical piece on YouTube entitled "Into the Wild: Chapter II" a while ago, and I loved it, so to see it uploaded here where I can add it to my favourites is definitely a treat! Thank you for this wonderful work!

Kool, and it reminds me of LOTR. And I always zoom in to look at pictures so as long as I can do that it doesn't effect it so much.

Amazing! I really like the detail in the rocks and terrain and how the lighting is shown to come in from the sides of the valley, not just a huge shadow that creates a dark image. I can just hear sounds to go with it its so amazing! *-*

Do you have an estimated time as to how long this took?
