Summer Rain by kaijae Summer Rain by kaijae
I set myself the challenge of going through all the brushes I have one by one and using them somewhere in this; I only got about half way through. It was harder than I thought, but helped loads with knowing what ones are good for certain things. Plus I'm really fond of red deer (probably because they're one of the only large mammals you can see in the UK) but it morphed into a revisit of the forest elemental/creature theme I seem to keep doing, though I like this the most so far.

This is simply stunning and mesmerizing. I was immediately drawn in to this painting so of course I had to add it to my favourites. I would love to make something almost as good as this if not as good as it lol. The way that the red deer blends and is a direct part of its environment remind me of the Forest Spirit from the movie "Princess Mononoke" which I adore. Extremely well done and absolutely beautiful. Amazing work! after I've caught up on some sleep, i'll look at your other masterpieces.

Pretty colors, an excellent combintion of the principal naturań color, green, a peacefull recreation and combination, inspire to me the calmness, the sight of the deer, the angle of picture, the curve position of the trees, how the light det into the graphic, and dissapear the background.
