Daily Painting No.9 ( Wizard casts a lighting spell in a dark forest)

a wizard casting a light spell in a forest

I have been in a national forest for most of the day. Had the urge to draw a forest scene. The wizard casting a lighting spell was a spur of the moment thing.

Self critique: needed to finish the bark of the tree. and have more branches point toward the wizard. While I am proud of the leaf texture brushes I made, the realism of the textures conflict with of the unfinished bark. I totally forgot to add bounce lighting to the leaves. I love the glow effect of the light I made with minimal effort.

  1. I love it.
    I live close to Olympic Nat’l Forest (Twilight
    Series)… its so green, forest floor is duffy. Your red and green is magic, if not alternatively Christmassy mysticism. The season is about romance lights and forests… did you have the holidays in mind. I really do love the middle and the power to create power. <|=ยฐ])


    1. I painted it early in November, I was watching LOTR at the time. So it’s more inspired by gandalf then st.nick ๐Ÿ™‚ I am very glad you liked my painting. take care ๐Ÿ™‚
