A Time Long Past: Reworked by pallanoph A Time Long Past: Reworked by pallanoph
Prints are available in my Etsy store only. Check them out here! [link] :dance:

EDIT: 11/17/09

I reworked this... significantly. I have never before done such a thing with a piece... bear in mind that the painting was originally "finished" in June of 2008. I looked at it again recently, after having dug it out of the closet and thought it looked like it needed some serious work... So I decided that I would do just that. :D

Granted, I'm sure it's still off. It will likely always be off. Either way I'm more pleased with the overall effect it has now. If you're curious to see before and after details, here they are. [link]

(On a more negative note, due to the nature of this piece, Photomerge was refusing to cooperate. I had to piece a few sections of this by hand... :cries:)

This image was completed for my website's homepage. Mixed media on hot press Fabriano. Irish elk (Megaloceros) simply fading into nothingness; the leaves seem to carry him off... or something. I leave that up to you;)

This is gorgeous. I love the reworked one - the coloring is better. Although I have to admit I there is something about the face I still like on the originial as well. I will be looking at the rest of your gallery. Found you through the Illustrators Online group.

magnificent! I love the way he seems to break up into leaves, or is maybe formed by them, before being tossed back into the wind....

That's cool. 8D I like how it fades away.
You must have so much patience to draw that many leaves. xD The most leaves I have ever drawn individually was 52, and I never finished that piece. > w>;

That's really striking and beautiful - the semi-open area of the leaves working as this really neat transition to having the solid chunks of figure.
