There are the awesome salt textures, yes, but the thing that I love so much about this one are the trees - the pine (I hope it's a pine...), the way you painted the branches, especially in the top part - and the ones in the background. They have so much of that north taiga feel.

Yep, those are pine trees.

:iconsieskja: did amazing work on this.

This particular area depicted is known simply as the Great Forest of the North Ahrea continent, being part of the Iellos setting that is the default for the Sword Land RPG game system that I'm currently writing.

Reason I very much like that area (and actually most adventure modules I've been writing currently are set around that specific point in the world) is that I happen to live in such an place where this kind of scenery is not much more than an hour drive away. You write from experience, from what I've seen of things.

Kind of inspired me to add that climate in more traditional fantasy, as far as my writing is concerned.

This is stunning! :love:
I love everything in this: your original and unique style, the muted color pallette, all those cool textures and details.
Character looks also lovely; so light and elegant. :heart:

Isn't it? :iconsieskja: did amazing work on this one.



Maybe this is shameless self promotion, but the world of Iellos (this setting, in particular the Great Forest of the North Ahrea continent) is the default setting for the Sword Land RPG game system I'm writing.

This particular area (and this character) have always been my favorite to write about, so indeed a picture like this was in order for inspiration. :)

Good old traditional Tabletop RPG that is in the works.

Currently I'm in the middle of preparing the first official public playtest of the system, which will be going live October 14th. (There is a convention during the 11th-13th where I'm debuting the playtest, so they get first dibs for showing up to the event.)

Keep an eye on www.facebook.com/SwordLandRPG , the official Facebook page for the system. (And if you like this character, she has a habit of popping up in quite a few of the artwork pieces for the game...)

This is lovely- your use of inks and watercolours is amazing! The detail of the branches on the fir tree is incredible and I really adore all the textures in the misty woods and the starry sky. Another gorgeous piece! :D

Thank you!
I like the textures in that painting too. Actually, that's due to the salt which particularly worked here =D
