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.
