May I use your graphics on meinpferdchen.de!?
SUPERB WORK !!!
Thanks for sharing!
I also love your eye for detail; the rushing water, which appears to be moving away from the storm (very clever), and i love the trees; they seem old, but strong, almost as if symbolizing the hope and strength needed to battle the storm at its peak. The two villagers also appear to be comforted by the trees as they walk on the simple dirt path. And what interests me is why you drew those two specific trees much "stranger" than all the other trees in this image.
Another thing which i have just notices is the almost glowing butterfly, fluttering its silver wings without a care. This only adds onto the beauty of destruction and tranquility. Were you perhaps trying to make an indirect symbolism of the two sides of the human nature (peace and violence) in a constant battle against one another, and the way we, as humans, have to face both of these aspects of ourselves, and only have a thin border between the two. If broken, we will either be taken over by chaos, or by our peaceful, yet fragile, nature.
Very well done, you have earned yourself a deserved watcher as well as a favorite. Very nice, keep up the amazing masterpieces!
You really get a sense of how the air changes to that cool breeze and the urgency to get home before the storm you can feel in the the air gets to you.
Did you do the textures manually? It must've been a lot of time and effort..
