Forest Sentry II by jocarra Forest Sentry II by jocarra
My first attempt at hyper-realism, and first big personal image in quite a while. It was partly inspired by an older piece, and partly by this beautiful fellow here: [link] - my original concept had him peering through some branches at the viewer, but I couldn't decide which version I liked better, so I'm uploading both. The leaves in this one are overpainted from some reference photos I took of the trees outside my apartment.

~15 hours Adobe Photoshop
