Falls by Lizzy-John Falls by Lizzy-John
Digital over pencil sketch.

I love environment art but it is super tough for me, I totes want to do more. This one's been sitting unfinished in my art folder for ages. So glad to finally get it done. Yay :)

Comments, critique, faves, etc., all welcomed and appreciated!

I have this picture opened in my browser for a week, every time i power my computer i stay some minutes watching it. Is simply amazing, the color mixing,the feeling mixing, the theme, the surprise when you look at the bottom. I love it. I hope some day get that talent.

This is amazing, again showing your smooth painterly style. I like the far away human? Shadows not aware I believe if what lays in the far away below or perhaps the definition of a murder they did.....

Being taken aback by the beauty of nature you've depicted, the dead body at the base of the fall becomes all too stark; well done!

Woah… I was not expecting the dead bloody body. interesting narrative and colors. 
shadowmagi Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Wow I love this.  That body at the bottom really makes me wonder what the story is!

Wow it takes some guts to do such a strong color variation ( and consequently mood) within the same picture. I guess we are kind of used to the brutal changes but this one is smoothly progressive. Very inspiring ! :D
Solocell Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013
Wow, really cool gradient of color here.
SineSquared Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013
Wow it's so different from your usual stuff!  At first I was like - who am I watching who does stuff like this??
I love how you did the shadows of different colors.
Totally go for more of this kind of stuff!

lovely colors... am just beginning to get into enviros too, apparently they are waaaay tougher than characters :)
urblackcat Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013
At first I was like "wow this is really cool. I love the people at the top and the colors and how pretty it - OH MY GOD THERE'S A BODY. OH MY GOD SHE'S BLEEDING - SHE'S DEAD. WHAT JUST HAPPENED?"
But yea, I really like it.

Incredibly nice contrasts! :)
Teryster Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Student General Artist
Colors and composition is perfect, but what really got me was the message. Just scrolling down, it gives you several images that, in the end, match into one and then you read the name of this masterpiece and your mind just gets blown away.
At least mine did.
S-VAM Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I think what I really like about this piece are the colors that progress down from a bright and serene palette to a darker and sombre environment.
Glorious-System Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Student General Artist
This is amazing! Your coloring technique gives a rich texture to the whole painting. Plus it creates a great contrast between happiness and...well the dead body.

This gives me a very mystical feeling. Although this picture, to me, represent true nature. How it isn't just candy sweet and beautiful. Nature can also be fearful and deadly. As you drew that human(?) down below who is bleeding while people are looking for him/her above. At least I see it as a human, I can't really make it out. I really adore the fact that the lands are different colors. It gives me a lively feeling. It was also very creative of you.

Nice work. ouo

Reminds me of Frank Frazeta because of the lights and shadows and colors
BlakBrbrGuy Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love everything...then there is a dead person. Other than that, its awesome. XD
leanzaofearth Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013   Digital Artist
Just wow. I love the colors and the cartoon-ish style. I didn't see the man at the bottom first and when I did I was a bit shocked but it made me love this even more! :love: I completely agree with everything that ~Savoto said.
Savoto Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I love the contrast between the colors at the top and the horrific scene at the bottom. The top looks so dreamy and lush and the thickness of the waterfalls make it feel full of life. Then things get darker and the falls become smaller then the body just lays there...You did such a good job on this.

Damyne Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Student Interface Designer
Great Environment! I think you got the canvas dimensions just right; the shape forces the eyes to move at a good speed from the top to the bottom, and really hints at a story of some kind.

The trees lean really nicely too, just like they should. Good job!

*first impression* "How sweet!" *scrolls down* "Oh... The mood totally changed. O_o"

To me it almost seems like a girl, considering the possible bikini strap on her back. But maybe it is a guy....with a liking for ladies' undergarments XD You never know...
