Autumn Tree by *Angela-T shows us the perfect Autumnal scene. The mood is wonderful, so calm and warm. The colors are gorgeous, all fiery reds and burning orange and gold. The way the artist has layered the tree with leaves, creating such beautiful mixes of color is fantastic! The tree itself is perfect, so huge and towering and old, yet still very magical and full of patience and beauty. I really adore all the little details- the little toad sitting on a thick root, the giant toadstools, the trees in the background, just visible through the mist.

Hi there! I hope you don't mind the fact that I made a flyer for my friend to promote himself locally using this image! I can send you the picture if you'd like. I don't know if he has it printed out yet. His artist name is Within Arms Reach

This is absolutely remarkable!
Is it OK if I use this as my fall icon on a forum I participate in as long as I provide a link back to your dA?
Owl-Flight Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is amazing, there is so much detail in it I would almost have trouble finding a single thing wrong with it. But there is one thing driving me crazy. The leaves have almost no detail to them, and look stamped on next to all the little details in the tree. Now I'm not saying you should have gone in and detailed every single leaf, but the most prominent ones, yes. Even if it was just a shadow where the main vein of the leaf would be in the leaves falling in front of the tree I feel it would made a huge difference to the whole picture.

Of course my noticing this may just be because I have a bias against photo shop leaf and grass tools, but I feel like if you had just gone in and detailed a little bit more it would have looked perfect.

The scarecrows adds a nice touch. This is just gorgeous in every way. Feels very autumnal indeed! Lovely work!

Wonderful colors and perspective. I like how the floor's all misty too and how that soft green's blended in. Also like the dude in the background, for some reason.

Amazingly displayed, stunning, and just flat-out original. I have never seen someone display autumn with this sort of tree.

You just earned my :+fav:

Gorgeous :) I've tried painting a tree before. It's exceedingly more difficult than what it might seem (that is, assuming you're painting something marvelous like this and not something that resembles a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree) lol
Desenart Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
nice illustration, but what about those unrealistic leaves? its seems like they are cut and paste all over the tree. The tree instead looks awesome (nice textures) and that little frog is just perfect by sitting there telling me how high is the tree. The background looks cool, the colors are well picked and blend . Well done :) . love the way u played with the shadows and lights..
Anyways u did a wonderful job here, keep up the good work!! C ya!

Sorry for my bad English..
