Compliments with this work of art. I surely love it: colors, composition, light and details work great together. I'm interested to see more of these. I'm impressed with the dark lines, giving nice sharp details and it's fun to look and keep looking. Details like the red or brown snake in the trees and the roots of the trees are very good. If I would try to make this, I'd try to keep the water less... Look great, but not much to see there. And perhaps give the ground more space. More of the little steps, perhaps some more animals. Why not add some birds in the trees? Or did the snake eat them all? In it's owns way, this picture is telling a story, without need of any words. Very nice to see... For me, it's been fun to find this and it gives me ideas to try some myself. Thanks for sharing !

I also enjoy the lines and the composition. This piece appears to have been done in both traditional and digital media. My only critique is the lettering from the title. It feels like the placement was to not disturb the rest of the piece, but the rest of the image is so strong I think you could enlarge the text or add an opaque background behind the text of some sort. I really love the texturing you've created with the mixture of line art and color throughout this piece. Nice work.
