wow ! being used to digital art, i must say that i like the "smouth" effect of this work (its the "oil painting" aspect i guess) Despite the grim background, it radiate warmth and gentleness. plus i like the general concept and all the details that make this picture a non-generic piece of art. Well done !

Love it. Makes me wonder about the story behind the figure (and make up my own, of course.) 

Great job! I love how all the brightness in the painting is centred on whatever is quenching the thirst, in the bucket, the leaves and the grooves.

Mostly questions: if the sky is dark and grey, does light ever shine through? Does the tree-person need what's in the bucket to survive because they can't get sunlight? 

I'll definitely check out the rest of the series. :)

This is so beautiful! The painting, background and use of blur and light makes this a wonder to see. The symmetrical patern on the anthropomorphic wooden person is expertly done in perfect detail. The flames and glow look nearly realistic.

I would give this 10/10
