Tree Root Canopy by ANTIFAN-REAL Tree Root Canopy by ANTIFAN-REAL
I've been doing a lot of work recently that I can't show (which is always a downer) and a lot of other work cramming to finish off a major project which is eating in to my art time!

This is a concept image illustrating an area with such enormous vegetation that you can actually walk under the roots of larger trees. I always loved the look of "A Bugs life" when they turned mere blades of grass into glowing cathedral-like ceilings and the like; I've just made the foliage larger rather than the characters smaller.

Original res ~3k

Painted in Photoshop CS with a Wacom Tablet.

wow! amazing concept! I like how you painted in people crossing the bridge, it really give a good comparison to how big the tree roots are to the people's size.  Really love the detail you put into this like the sun rays and the water and the grain of the wood.  Nice work! :)

Kind of reminds me of Kashyyk with the large Wroshyr trees that the Wookiees live in.

I can almost hear the old wooden bridge creaking as they walk across it. :) Love the vines growing under the roots, too. Beautiful.

Such a lovely concept. I really like the contrast between the organic twisting roots and the man-made bridge of the same material. The bright cyan lighting of this image evokes a surreal underwater feel, even though... well its above water. ^^;

Again, beautiful. I especially like the lighting, and how the bridge appears to be built on another root.
