Lost in the Woods by CanisPanthera Lost in the Woods by CanisPanthera
I did this painting for a friend as a Hanukkah present. I'm banking that he's not gonna be checking my deviantart page anytime soon cuz I don't wanna wait to upload it!

My inspiration for the style was Arthur Rackham. I had never heard of him before I saw a special on him in ImagineFX 84. I was struck by the beautiful line work and faded storybook color palette. I knew I had to try it out! This was definitely a fun experiment. Also I used reference from photos I took of Miur Woods while I was vacationing in San Francisco.

Watercolor, ink, digital, 8X10

Great rendition of the opening scene! The perspective really heightens the sense of a looming presence (No pun intended). And I like the way the atmosphere obscures the Skull Kid to the point where I was almost spooked when I noticed him hiding way up in the trees. Overall, your spatial composition is engaging, successfully bringing the viewer into the experience.

THis is BRILLIANTLY done. I love the perspective, and the watercolors bring a very eerie yet soft feel to this. I love his face style too. It's very much your own, and well done!

Amazing image! I adore your style. Very unique to see this scene portrayed in more of a realistic look. Gives the gravity of the situation a greater affect.. The fact that this poor boy that just saved the world & NO ONE REMEMBERS, has not really a clue of what to do with himself now.. So he ventures off to find a friend, all alone in a lonely forest.. & that perspective is INCREDIBLE! The way the skull kid is so VAGUELY seen at the top corner sends chills. Great work!
