River Runs Dry by Risachantag River Runs Dry by Risachantag
Inspired by "I Am" by Dead Letter Circus. There was a neat interview with the lead singer, saying the song idea came to him when remembering playing in a dried up riverbed when he was a kid, imagining the river could flash flooding in.

Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos tablet, approx 8 hours.

This is a beautiful picture. I love the warm, organ lighting of it, making me believe that you, instead of painting a sunset, painted with a sunset. The sharp contrast of the dark, deadened trees against the warm sky is striking.I am enjoying the almost-magical element of the water seeming to come from the tree branch and how the water is raising up and covering the sun., giving the ground look like an underwater shot. Not going to lie, at first I thought the water was clouds...but reading the description made it clear what was going on. Loved this piece!

I realise it's probably not your intention, but with the orange-red ambience of the low sun, parched landscape and inrushing waters, this reminded me of the Red Sea crossing recorded in Exodus.

Ok first of all  I almost thought it was an animation when I first looked at it, it seemed to come to life, I could almost see the water splashing, the reflections shifting on the dirt, the girl waving the stick in motion with the waves. Then I realised it was just a still image and I was stunned *.*. I love the minimal colours used, it aids to the warm and calm feeling of the image. : D Maybe I should have made this a critique : p, oh well, ^^ It's beautiful. I'll have to check out Dead Letter Circus now : p

Wow this is really beautiful! The atmosphere is heavy with heat and light, and I love the pose of the character. There's such strength and beauty in walk that it draws me in and makes me want to follow her into whatever it is she sees :)
