To a magical land.. by NaBHaN To a magical land.. by NaBHaN
This Idea suddenly struck me while I was listening to Elisa's 'Rainbow' and I actually had a slightly different view on how I wanted it to turn out and a different title to go with it. I Think it turned out pretty good and this is probably my most complex illustrator scetch to date. I uploaded the Outlines to my scraps in case anyone was interested.

Done from scratch in Illustrator CS (except the grid background which was done in photoshop).

Hope ya'll like this one. :)

Look at that sun, that is so cool! And a rainbow that continues out pretty darn far. <3 I'd live there.

Lovely colours included on this, I really like the almost water colour effect on this, the rainbow adds a nice chunk of colour to the piece too.

It's nicely composed, with good use of negative space :)

Well done once again :D

... breathtaking... :lol:

beautiful! all of it.
how long did it take you to do this?
i can see all the seperate layers and colours incorporated into this. during the time i have watched you on dA i have realised that you have an amazing ability to concentrate and get the job done with an amazing amount of quality.! ;)

what are all the white things in the trees? birds? nests?
the only 1/18 negative thing i have to say is that the colours in the rainbow differ in boldness and strength.
done on purpose?
the addition of the man walking the rainbow is so original and puts so much more concept and 'meaning' into the piece.

do you use tutorials to learn these skills or do you experiment? also, i'd like to see a tutorial from you! :D
will we be seeing this as a background anytime soon? :)
great work again.

hey talco ,

Well the white things are sort of glow spots I added to make the trees look less plain , and yeah I gave the rainbow a lighter look than the rest of the elements in the design cause well i figured rainbows are supposed to be transparent anyways.

I don't like following tutorials for some reason and so I just experiment with whatever I have. This was done from scratch , I just opened illustrator and started scribbling away. :p How do can I write a tutorial on it is something I will have to figure out cause this is just a freehand drawing using illustrator brushes , there are no rules to follow. ;)

and yeah.. this took me around 4 hours (non stop , cause if i stop I get out of the mood and it ruins everything) to complete.

thanks man. :P
