A bit of the change from my usual works, in order to flesh out a bit this universe ^_^

From the wiki ( [link] ) :

The Chidokai forest is a massive, thick rain-forest that spreads from the east of Negav to the southern edge of frost peak. It's also called "forest of the many hiding places" because the tall trees that grow here are narrow, have very dense foliage, twisted hollow trunks, and their roots form an intricate maze with lot of space between them and the ground. Actually, this "in between" zone is almost like a forest under the forest, with vegetation of its own. A tribe of nekos live in this layer. Even further down is a network of dark caves and more roots, mostly unexplored and inhabited by giant and voracious insects. In Chidokai forest, it's often hard to tell where trees end and where the ground begins.

This is a great piece that gives us a great look at the environmetal aspect of Felarya. It gives a clear look at what the Chidokai region is like, as well as creating a definite mood. As the sun sets, the explorers cross the log bridge into more uncertainty and expose themselves to the dangers on the other side.

I personally like how this was executed. It takes a classic formula and gives it a new look and impact. This also show Karbo's great capacity for design and mood, as well as his creativity. This is by all means an excellent piece of art.

Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you writing this write-up plus the rest of the site is also really good. Clipping Path
this does look astoundingly like the toxic forest from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
looks like the scene of King Kong
