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 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.
