Mysterious Rainforest by Exileden Mysterious Rainforest by Exileden
Inspired by Florida.

I'd say it's collaboration between me and =Ahkward :D She did a fast sketch of landscape in person, which I saw and really liked. I liked her idea and choice of unusual colors. Then I decided to adopt it and do a full painting digitally, yep I'm proud of it because I have no skill to finish my digital pieces but this one feels more completed than most of my others... I really want to learn doing complex digital illustration and landscapes which I admire from many skilled artists- which I really struggle to achieve what I want. With digital, I have a very bad color perception and mixing which is an opposite world than what I do traditionally and as well polishing shapes and textures.
I need to stop getting so discouraged and keep trying. Trying and trying.

Thank you for looking :blowkiss: Any advices or encouraging comments will be blessing for me to improve up!

It has such a mystic aspect to it, entering some kind of cavern to some fantasy dream-based mystery. I love those types of drawings, really reflect dreams :)

Very nice. The light reflection on the small stream is eyecatching.

Piękne, bardzo podobaja mi sie kolory, a te wszystkie efekty świetlne, szczególnie w dolnej czesci, sa po prostu magiczne. Drzewo w tle ma kształt żywej istoty, jakby sie poruszało. Wydaje mi sie tylko, ze kompozycja jest calkiem przypadkowa ale jako calośc robi świetne wrażenie.

Very nice work, looks rather mysterious and beautiful. Keep working on improving your digital painting skills. :) I often fall into a discouraged state and usually struggle out of it some days later- kind of a waste of time, if you want to get better at something keep practicing it consistently and don't be discouraged by bad results. Failures are inevitable, you just have to learn from them and work some more.
