With this piece, I wanted a real sense of scale. The theme is all about flight and trusting yourself. I wanted it to feel like a dream; the only way to find out if you can fly or not is to jump.

Time: Approx 5-6 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS3 & Wacom Intuos tablet

there are many things i actually like about this work that raises it above what would be considered excellent.

the sense of scale, which the artist is trying to achieve has been superbly rendered in this work, you can see the amount of time and effort used to get to this goal, look carefully at what seems to be a river below and draw your eyes up and you can see how the earth has been built up. the wideness of the landscape has not been approached with the usual landscape form, for this artist dares to use an upright portrait style which has been wonderfully pulled off in the work. the added detail of the soon to be flier lends the scene the final piece and shows the full depth of this work. Great use of colours and a very atmospheric scene. well done. good work

I found this on Google Images years ago and have been looking for the artist ever since. Well, now that I found you I just want to say that this picture is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever seen. It blends the fantasy and dreamlike quality with a sense of mystery. The colors and depth are wonderful and add to the impact of the picture. In all, I just want to say that this picture has been a great inspiration for me.

For some reason i can relate to this drawing. I always wanted to be up in the sky or at least a place thats high off the ground and has alot of windand fly away(broke my arm in doing so because i wanted to fly and i was on top of the roof so i jumped. I was little) but i could never achieve it.
Overall cool drawing looks stunning!
