The Autumn by balaa The Autumn by balaa
The Autumn
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1833)
(..An Excerpt from the poem..)


Go, sit upon the lofty hill,
And turn your eyes around,
Where waving woods and waters wild
Do hymn an autumn sound.
The summer sun is faint on them —
The summer flowers depart —
Sit still — as all transform’d to stone,
Except your musing heart.

Really lovely image. I especially like the slight angle to the perspective and the pose of the character, with it's back to us as opposed to a side or front view. :meow:

This is really pretty, the only thing I'd change (as it's bugging me slightly) is there is a slight sliver of light breaking through the trees below the wolf's maw. Made it look like he had a snaggletoothed fang sticking out until I looked closer and could see it was just light between the trees.

This is a beautiful image. The wolf though gives me the impression of not being grounded. It may be the lighting, lack of shadow or merely how there seems to be no sense of contact around the rear paws.

This has to be my favorite out of all your artwork here.  The atmosphere, texture, and depth are absolutely perfect.  I love how the forest gets harder to see the further away it goes. And that fur! :la: Gorgeous work!!

I was also thinking, maybe it's closed eyelid.... Like, as if shutting eyes to take in the surroundings with just scent and hearing.

No, technically you aren't supposed to see his eye, that's just the highlight around the eye, but I see what you are seeing now! May have to fix that xD!
