The Reader's Path by jerry8448 The Reader's Path by jerry8448
~o~ The Reader's Path ~o~

I wanted to paint this a few days ago. I already had the sketch, but for some reason ended up doing the Red Riding Hood picture instead. This here was more carefully planned and took me a lot longer. It's definitely one of my more detailed pictures. I even worked in the titles of some of the books I used to love when I was younger.

I have another version with a small glowing fairy hovering over the path, but I was told not to use it. Sometimes I wish I was half as good at drawing characters as I am with scenery :paranoid:

Anyway, enjoy! :)

I've just discovered your work, and this is one of my favourite pieces. I love that calm, dreamlike atmosphere you manage to create, sometimes innocent, sometimes bittersweet... And the little details on your characters or landscapes that make me smile (the striped fungi on the left ^^). Thank you for sharing your paintings here :-)

As an avid reader of urban fantasy and modern faerie tales, this naturally appeals to me, and I know many people on the Facebook group The Mythic Cafe will also appreciate it, so I'm sharing this over there right away!

Of course I know google translator, but 
a) I'm lazy
b) on an international website I've come to expect comments in English and find it rather odd to see other languages (besides German) ;)

I love how LOTR is the second book to step on. It's exactly how I started off reading. I get into Nancy Drew first (easier) and then LOTR/Hobbit. Never looked back once. :D

The first novels that really got me hooked to fantasy were by Terry Brooks. The top book where the writing is hard to make out is "The sword of Shannara" ;)

I just stumbled across your work and I'm in love! Is it possible to buy your work in large prints to cover walls in classrooms or home libraries? Your style fits perfectly with my dream children's library!

I've enabled prints of up to 20x30 inches. I don't dare to go any larger as I'm afraid it'll get pixelated otherwise.
