An ink fairy tale.
Forest Beauty is one of biggest projects I have ever done by now (this is really large!). My goal for this artwork was to surpass all the previous works in the quantity of the details and refinement.
I wanted to picture something beautiful, mysterious and even… a little wild. That’s why the forest theme was chosen — I like nature, but forests make me feel uncomfortable somehow.
Woods seem to be too unpredictable and independent, they are like human emotions — you need some safety standards.
Wild life, nature is a huge source of inspiration, an essential realm of being for people (although we are keen on civilization games for a long time already), but no matter how close a person is to the nature, he (or she) is still nothing but a guest, a small part of the system, and it’s reasonable to be friendly, but yet — on the alert.
Everything that I said about nature is applicable to our emotions and the unconscious. So this artwork has a dual meaning 🙂
The fragments in close up – so you could find all the cute creatures here:
As a current owner of the original artwork, I have to admit that it is absolutely possible to observe and examine this drawing endlessly 😀
This fragment needs no caption 😀
It’s all in the textures
A bonus – almost the beginning of the work shot.
