A waterfall made of stars.
I did this piece earlier this year for the Spellweaver trading card game and forgot to upload it. Hope you like it.

This is a very serene piece of art let me just say to start. The color choices are very surreal, but they make this piece what it is. Magical. The water surfaces and the falls are done well, though I find my eyes wishing for a slightly more crisp or sharper sense of the foremost falls coming down into the stream at its base.

The lighting is impeccable and it shows you put quite a bit of effort to achieve this slightly ethereal purple twilight. On the back mountain and some of the surrounding trees that are "facing" the sunlight could use some starker contrast in colors. I think. Not too much, but some dark green with a tinge of orange/purple around the branches just very subtly would add color balance, and accent the focus points, rather than be washed out by the grey twilight.

Overall and in short this is a very enchanting piece of art and I think there is little else that could be constructively analyzed that you don't already know yourself.

I love this! It has a beautiful purple and blue mist, and i love the sun rise/set. The tree's and mountains are very majestic. i love how the water reflects the color of t he sky. The waterfall is simply amazing, and i can't get over how awesome this picture is. I think if you added a deer, or any other animal, in the middle of the river would make it absolutely awesome :) (not saying that it isn't right now ^^) I like how their are rock slates on the east side of the picture, and tall grass in cracks of the ground on the west.

This is an amazing idea, and a beautiful execution of it, too. Love the glowing stars and the bright sky. It looks peaceful and mysterious. A snapshot from a land of dreams.

After looking at it for a minute, I suddenly wonder what it'll sound like. A waterfall made of stars. Will it rush and roar like a normal waterfall? Doesn't quite fit for me... Now I imagine a ringing sound, a soft-spoken melody, floating along with the mists made of stardust.

Yup, beautiful indeed. :)
