All That Glitters by MCKrauss All That Glitters by MCKrauss

This was inspired by one particular morning when I was walking the dog in the woods. It was fairly early, I happened to glance up and the way the light played down through the trees, oh my. It just took my breath away, everything seemed to glitter and glow. It was so amazing, and that is where this image came from, with a fantasy twist of course.

Thanks for looking, thanks in advance for comments and faves. I gave up on trying to catch up with thank yous's and deviations but with nearly 11,000 comments, thanks and faves in my inbox, I finally gave up. Maybe I can keep current, we'll see. Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Although you may not post my art on the web, you may gladly use my art for your personal desktop. The resources used to create this artwork were purchased or rendered/created by me.

Than you hun. It was an experiment that I had fun with, though to be honest the image looks rather different in the original form. I'm working on a new background pack, and a version of this is included.

As soon as I saw the "All that glitters" title , I mentally added the "is not gold; Gilded tombs do worms enfold" portion of the quote. I thought the artwork, the figure at the heart, eldritch.
And then I read the description ...

Neat work, even if I read it as something completely different :)

I like the shadowy depth you achieve in a lot of your 'forest based scenes. It makes if feel like a real world you could step off into.

Thank you. I've seen so many forests that are shadowy and deep in my time, I tend to go there every time I make a forest.
