Quarrel by Twistmyflesh Quarrel by Twistmyflesh
One I've worked on a little now and then. Wanted to create a cozy environment with something interesting in the middle. It turned into a contrast between tranquility and intensity. "Bad" things happen in beautiful places.

Photoshop.

This artwork gave me goosebumps! The amount of detail is staggering, and very well executed.

I found this piece really has the ability to draw the viewer into this secret, almost fantasy like space, where the jaw dropping encounter between the two birds takes place. We watch on in earnest, trying to discern what will happen next between the two rivals or lovers, while appreciating the beauty of the scene in the same moment. Sun-rays through the tree tops highlight the focus and centre of the piece, while other highlights include the reflection of said rays in the water below, as well as the eerie green/blue glow scattered in the background. We get the feeling the birds are not the only characters present in this snapshot in time, but what else there is has been left for dissection by our imaginations.

A very lovely piece indeed, definitely something I would love to have printed and signed by the artist.

Keep up the wonderful work

First thing to say? Well, I've fallen in love with this picture.

The birds flight is dynamic and cute in a way, with the feathers flotting around.
I'm totaly amazed by your game of light and shadows. The picture is dark, but the light comming on the birds attracts my attention and I totaly forget the deepness of the forest.
The background itself is very detailed. I guess you didn't use any brush, did you? Well, if you used brushes I'd love to have them aswell! But no, it's too beautiful to be brushes.
Oh, and the reflection of the light on the water, in the first ground, it adds something more to the picture.

Honestly, this scene fascinates me. Mysterious and beautiful. What a great work!
(and sorry for my poor english ^^';)

Am I the only one who sees text in the grass? Am I just imagining things? If it IS there, what does it say?

Love the contrast and the light :):horns:

lovely light situation
great realism and detail of the birds!someone can see all the effort put into :)
beautiful piece!

i got something that bothers me a bit. shouldnt be the highlighted ground/grass area be more saturated?compared to the shadowy grass it looses saturation.i could imagine some strong yellow and green with high peak highlights moving along saturated yellow towards white.
it just seems so washed out right now.

Thank you.

Yeah, you're right about that. I'm not really satisfied with the grassbed there really. But I think I've kinda figured out how to do it next time. At least I'll make it so ^_^

Thanks for the cc.
