I would nottt want to be alone there at night. I second the Aokigahara sentiment.
This is stunning! The use of colour is wonderful, and you really captured the dynamism and immaterial feel of the fire. I really like this.
I wish I could fav this more than once. This really is a masterpiece man.
Thanks guys for your comments
@iLKke - now, that you've mentioned it, yea it looks kinda alike, but I don't think it's a bad thing(:
@Frost Butt - the only similarity I see is the perspective which isn't really rare if you're googling for a forest pics. Here is one of the refs I used
it is a bit disconcerting how similar the trees are to iLkke's link
Beautiful! The plague of ghouls made me wonder if this forest is the Aokigahara.
I think the "eerie" theme would be better served without the walking skeletons. Maybe without the faces either. Seeing ghosts reminds me they're not real, and that my fear of them is imaginary. Being alone in a dark, misty forest is a frightening real experience, and I'm not even sure why. That's eerie.
Nice pic. Perhaps a bit too reminiscent of this?
environments seem to be your thing, eh? You're really good at them.
Отличная работа, мне она очень понравилась, все так реалистично, отлично передолась напряженная обстановки в этой ситуации=)
best colors ever. I enjoy the spooky subject matter a great deal, as well.
The vertical bark pattern on the second tree from the left is breaking the perspective a bit for me. Other than that, this is just gorgeous.
What a great freaking atmosphere! truly awesome!
a shame though that you dumped the skull/skeleton lying in the foregound of your last working stage and decided in favor of some cheap grass, i was really looking forward to that part :/
anyways, serious contender! tho, we still have to wait for that parallax entry, one is hopefully working all day and night :)
beautiful! I dont mind the skelitons but the overly consisten leaf shape bothers me a bit (but its no big deal)
Adore this. Only nitpick is that I think the skeletons' stances look too rigid, particularlly the nearest one. Takes away from the sinister somewhat.
