storytelling by ftongl storytelling by ftongl
grandpa speaks of the way to the
wood, to the sacred tree,
the wood he needs to make another face.
dangers, an old man can't face anymore.

with each legend running off his tongue,
the boy listens intently.
this time he listens.

This looks amazing! I love the style, how it's so different--did you actually make this with mixed media? Very unique piece with a distinct tribal feeling to it. Well done!

I love the whole concept of your storybook - the idea behind the masks, and all those beautiful details like the birds following the boy.

I like this one especially for the art of storytelling, how the images flow.

Nice, almost reminds me of a video game, like Shadow of the Colossus or something. :+fav:!

It must have taken you a very long time to do those trees! the blue birds are my favourite, though. Without then this picture would have been fairly flat and monochromatic; by adding them you've made the whole picture pop.

the trees were a pattern i made, copy paste and the such, while slightly adjusting the size with freetransform. and yes, i agree whole heartedly, those birds are my friends.
