Shadow of the Brook by Wildweasel339 Shadow of the Brook by Wildweasel339
At the edge of the sunlit hills, I gazed into the shadows.

The hunched figure you have sitting in the darkness doesn't seem like she's at all threatened by the fact that the one in the light is looking/approaching her darkness (I've decided the one in the darkness is a she ;) ). She's watching our hero, yes, but her spear is resting on the ground not aimed. In fact, the positioning of her arm suggests to me that her arm is relaxed rather than tensed.

I almost want to think of her as a witch-doctor (for lack of a better term). Someone with great earth-based power driven to the shadows by people who hate what they don't understand. She has foreseen the coming of our dear hero, and has been waiting for him for some time so she can help him in his quest...

Whether he knows he seeks it or not.

Whether he knows he's on a quest or not.

For at this point in his journey, he might not even realize he is on a quest (destiny can be funny like that).

She will aid him, guide him, but he must prove he is worthy of her help by making it through the dangerous terrain of her darkness. For though the darkness is not necessarily evil, it can be just as treacherousness as the light.

Ahh yes, great interpretation. I only wonder if our hero will have the courage to continue forward, or if at the face of uncertainty, turn and flee.

In any case I've decided that in addition to your great jewelry craft, you should become a writer of epic adventures. I will gladly illustrated the pages. There, it's settled.

:D

Thank you! :blush:

I actually am working on a book right now with my friend :iconevalyne: called Order of the Realm. We've spent months creating the world from scratch (its much harder than it looks >.< ) and getting the plot line worked out but we've actually gotten about 4 chapters written ^-^

There can be fear in shadows. An Instinctive and traditional sense of things that lurk there. question is do we fear the dark more of what lurks in them?

It is a rare gift to take green and peach and make it look mysterious :) No idea how you came up with the idea of setting the figure into the background with that colour, but it works really well.

Thanks,

My main intention for the peachy color was to make the boy stand out from all the green/yellow. I mixed that warm color in throughout though so it didn't seem completely out of place. Also, the reds hopefully keep green from getting too green and overwhelming.

Stapleton Kearns should title his someday-written biography "Overwhelmed by Green" - he talks about softening its effect often. I grew up in the brown lands of the western US and can never quite get enough of it myself :)

I use a mixture of custom brushes but you can get similar effects with Photoshop default chalk brushes.
