I don't often mark things as my favourites unless they keep me coming back to see it.. and every 30 minutes or so i find myself staring at this again and again... Wow.

author says:

Thank you very much! I touched up the base of the tree westfall.

I'm unfamiliar with the idiom, so I appreciated the explanation. The wooden landscape is lovely, but I don't get why the figure is also made of wood.

author says:

It just seemed to be fitting in the world of wood that I created. The figures being made of wood has no significance towards the idiom, only to the piece.

Funny image the sky looks very nice. I would suggest to change the shadows. The shadow of the man is way to big and comes to far to the front, while the shadow of the tree isn't getting any close to that and it's even higher. Removing the shadow on the front hill and sharpening the edge of the tree shadow (also stretch the shadow more downwards without fading it out) would finish the job Good luck!

I am glad so many people like this entry

Ressiv, I know the shadows are off a bit, I retweaked them but I am going to let this entry ride like it is. Once the contest is over I will upload my adjusted to my profile.

I think I kind of like how the shadows don't totally match the logic of the lighting.
