The Forgotten Wardens by ErikShoemaker The Forgotten Wardens by ErikShoemaker
I was really exited about this contest from the moment I got the notification because it's the first huge "photomanipulation-contest" I've seen since I'm active on dA.
My old Wacom Bamboo is almost dying, so I could really use a new one. :D I definitely don't expect to win anything, seeing how the digipaintings dominate the popular contest entries already frustrates me a little, though.

Anyway, I'm quite happy how this image turned out. I had a feeling I only produced crap recently, but this period seems to be over now and I'm glad :XD:

Hope you like it!


stocks from the asset pack:

you can find the strawberries (several times) in the bushes in the foreground

OK, you just earned a Watcher my friend! Oh, and I can sympathize with the Bamboo problem; I can't get smooth strokes to save my life.

the idea and combo works really well, I think maybe I'd make the leaves at the front a little less obvious. only my opinion.
