Tobol mountains by Karbo Tobol mountains by Karbo
A vison of the Tobol mountains and its vertical cliffs running alongside the evernight forest far below. And a family of braeliths preparing to settle for the night :3

Credits to Jasconius for the Braelith idea.

Amazing work on the landscapes once again. Great prospective POVing.
The extra dark clouds in the background seem a bit off to me though.
I know what you were trying to do with them, but they just seem out
of contrast to the rest of the sky content, and seem to interrupt
the progression. Actually maybe it's the white clouds that are a bit
out of place now that I study it a bit more. I'm not sure now, but
either the progression of the background clouds should be reversed
or something should be done with the too-white clouds.

I like the design of the Braelith, though the front paws on the one
walking on all fours don't quite seem consistent with having
opposable thumbs, though I know it's hard to put much detail in that
small a space. The rest of the poses seem fairly natural and
"alive". The solitary one sitting in the far off cave raised a
question of how did it get there. You show all the others climbing
vines or walking on a ledge, but none are climbing the actual bare
cliff face. It's possible the cave connects somewhere else, but it
did prompt me to wonder.
What I do love is the subtle shading on the cliff face and the
forest below. For the most part the shading obviously follows the
prominent light source, and I like the subdued colors of the fauna
throughout the pic.

I always like your landscape/setting drawings and this one did not
disappoint Hope this helps and keep up the good work! ^.^

Stuff like this makes me want to explore Felarya.
(The vore makes me want to have a video recording probe do the work for me.)
I came for the vore, I stayed for the scenery.

I saw this piece days ago, but I've been too at a loss for words to come up with anything interesting to say about it. I keep sifting around in my head, looking for SOMETHING, but for once, I can't. It's just really cool and the colors make it pop as the alien setting Felarya truly is. That's not much, but it's all I could think of to say.

The perspective and sense of height is wonderfully done here- it doesn't help that I may be a little sick at the moment but it's actually making me feel slightly dizzy looking at it XD. I'll also be a broken record like Prinny and state I always love to see the different landscapes you come up with for Felarya heh- it's just such a kick to see what it is all like!

I think when you restrict your colour palette you produce your most striking pieces - I love the blues and purples here! Really makes it distinct and memorable. Again your efforts in pushing yourself in perspective come across clearly here; the dizzying heights of the cliffs are really made evident. And I love the fauna too! It's one of the big strengths of the Felarya setting :)

Absolutely gorgeous! I know I'm probably sounding like a broken record on the topic, but your landscapes are just beautiful to behold. I really like the sense of scale the perspective grants, and I think you've perfectly nailed the muted yet oddly colorful atmosphere the world takes on just as the sun sets. That most of all is what stands out to me in this one.

And the little baby braelith is rather cute too. :D

That muted atmosphere is really what I was going for here that and also the feeling that there was much life in the evernight forest below, like nigh doesn't mean anything here :)

Absolutely incredible! You've managed to convey a staggering sense of scale and depth, whilst using FLAT COLOURS to do so - I mean I can't even put into words how amazing this is, and how difficult it must have been to do! You feel like you could just fall into this picture, the sense of real height and distance is that strong. Brilliant work! :clap:

Une scène que peu de gens pourraient voir... Mais qui nous montre une nouvelle fois que la vie à Felarya via bien au-delà des aventures des prédatrices géantes et des explorateurs humains ! :) L'angle est assez époustouflant. J'aime surtout ces lumières un peu mystérieuses qu'on voit tout en bas, dans ce fond de forêt qui nous donne le tournis, et qui suggèrent encore d'autres formes de vie loin des regards humains...

You know- you are really really good at portraying felaryan creatures- they look like they could be a species of animal around today!:) love the rich purpley tones in this picture and the sharp contrast between the sheer rock face and the tops of the trees below-lovely sense of perspective. The little braelith in the cave is so cute!:aww: Its nice to see some of the Felaryan animals getting a picture centred on them!:D
