Secret Place by jerry8448 Secret Place by jerry8448
~o~ Secret Place ~o~

I had another version of this picture up a few days ago, but with a girl in it. A number of people told me her figure looked off, so after a couple of less successful attempts of fixing her anatomy I eventually decided to get rid of the girl all together. This version is about 1/3 wider now, I've added the swing and dozens of little details.

I hope it's better now :P
~Jerry

There once was a place, a secret place; Where all sacred thoughts remained in place. Rather gossips to tell; Or a troubled heart; Beyond the glades, Not a word shall part. How did I know, that this was so; For the Secret Guardian told me so, and the promises of a wood nymph are as good as gold.

This is beautiful. The detail you put into the tree trunk and the leaves is great; it looks so real and very magical.

I didn't see this with the girl, but I doupt it could've been better than this. I love the sense of mystery here- the absence of girl makes me think what happened to the one swinging there, did she just disappear into the thin air? You know, like on those dreamy movie scenes, where you hear a echoes of children laughing, and at the same time you know something's terribly wrong... Maybe that's not what you ment it to be, but I really like twisted thigs like that.. :D Beautiful light, you're expert of atmosphere. :) :+fav:

Das Bild ist wirklich schön ^^ Man kann den Wind und das Licht fast schon spüren in diesem Bild! ;)
Die Farben, die du verwendet hast sehen super zusammen aus! Da will man, dass es sofort wieder Sommer wird und man sich draußen irgendwo unter einen Baum legen kann! :D

I'm glad you fixed it, and replaced the girl altogether. It looks almost perfect now :)

Only the texture of the scarf looks too heavy to me. If we take it as a summer, or spring scene, we would need something lighter, like silk, with more opacity.
The silk would also fly more easily in such a sweet, light breeze that moves only some brush in the front.

The scarf and the angle of the ropes make it look like the girl just want flying off into the wind. It's sort of scary but in a funny way!

Ohhh... ich muss sagen, die Schaukel gefällt mir besser, ja :aww:
Aber irgendwas fehlt mir hier jetzt noch... Fußspuren oder ein liegen gelassenes Buch oder ein roter Schal, der an die Schaukel gebunden wurde. Etwas, das darauf hinweist, das dieser schöne Ort auch genutzt wird.
