Sunset on Celenor by DarkSilverflame Sunset on Celenor by DarkSilverflame
Celenor (Fire Island) is a place in my fantasy novels and is inspired by an island of The Bahamas. There is a certain beach, far away from civilization, where I've spent many days. On that beach, sunsets are reflected by the trees, making it seem as if the whole island was made of fire, shadows and wind, whereas the water looks as if the sun itself had liquefied and fallen down to Earth.

The technique I used to make this painting sharp and realistic is explained in my tutorial:

Almost all of my deviations end up on #1 for their search terms, like my lion king paintings, which dominate page 1 ( [link] ). It's always fun to watch where each new thing ends up. It's quite motivating, but doesn't actually bring as many viewers each day as one might think :D
