Dark Wood by kaber13 Dark Wood by kaber13
There lies a dark side in the world of the fairie, others seldom see. And in that twilight where the Unseelie dance, darker things there be.


The Dark Wood lies along the Gnarl mountains between Sarago bay and the town of Silverspurr. It is a haunted forest full of trolls, Orcs, Goblins and ancient Treants twisted by foul magic and dark spirits roam restless.

It's a pretty large file so give it some time to load, thanx.

The atmosphere in this painting is amazingly creepy! I love how the dog seems to fade in from the shadows.

You are a pro when it comes to building a sinister, magical atmosphere in a picture and this one is no exception. Great colours too... wow.

The only think that annoys me a (tiny) little bit is the spider - it would look better withouth that dot there - but nevermind :3 it's just gorgeous!

Thank you very much. :D Ahh, the spider. Perhaps your right. It was an after thought but it seemed fitting at the time. :)

Oh I very much like the mood in this one, it's dark but somehow not threatening, it's like I'm being let in on a scene of nature that most people will never witness.
I love the depth you created thought the layers of trees moving into the back and I find my eye straining for hidden things not yet visible to the eye.

A stunning composition! After doing concept art for a year you really know what you are looking for in a piece like this, and this has everything.
I love your choice of colours everything fits in so nicely and no detail looks out of place, I really have no criticisms of this I think it is all gorgeous, well done! This style really suites you!

Oh yes, I like this very much. Is it based on the wild hunt tale or is it something else? It is wonderful to see someone of true talent portray the truer tales of the Fae of which most were not pretty or sweet. Excellent work and well deserving of a lot more attention. :D

Oh thank you very much! :D

Yes, it is loosly based on the Wild Hunt. In the series "The Black Cauldron" the author wrote of "The Horned King" which seemed to me an excellent depiction of The Wild Hunt. I've never lost that imagery and am happy I could paint this interpretation. Few know of the Unseelie Court or the dangers posed by them and I am pleased you recognized this. Thank You. :hugs:

Ooohh! Such a creepy guy. The antkers are a very nice touch. I must say I love the sky, and the trees - all spindly, just waiting to snatch some unsuspecting victim. The spooky description too - it's amazing! :)
