Emboscada by jcbarquet Emboscada by jcbarquet
Cold be hand and heart and bone
Cold be travellers far from home

They do not see what lies ahead
When sun has failed and moon is dead

Emboscada ("Ambush" in Spanish) is the most detailed and time-consuming digital painting I've done. It depicts a woman entering a forest, only to meet the worst possible fate...

I used reference of Gollum for the creatures. Everything is painted from scratch in PS.

Emboscada es mi pintura digital más detallada y tardada hasta ahora. Representa a una mujer entrando a un bosque, sólo para encontrarse con un destino horrible...

Usé referencias de Gollum para las criaturas. Todo está pintado desde cero en PS.

This creation is really amazing ! I really love the contrast between the enlightened side and the darkness side ... You really success in the control of light and shadows.

I think also this is really powerful, because I can feel the fear the woman can have ... I must said your Gollum characters are fearsome and so mysterious with their white eyes (contrasting with their dark bodies).

I read this digital painting is the one which took you most of your time ... But I want to know how exactly if it's possible ?

I suggested it as Daily Deviation because I think you really deserve it with this beautiful piece of work. I wish you'll have it :).

I'm waiting for other powerful work from you :).

Amazing picture. I like the sense of depth with the "light world" on the horizon and the dark forest in the foreground. The creatures are exceptionally spooky with their white eyes as the only thing to really see in the all consuming darkness. It's a wonderful detail with the holes at the top - it really shows how thick the forest is.
