The long way there by Hagge The long way there by Hagge
No. 44 for the 100 Theme challenge ~ Two roads.
I'd definitely take the longer way there, esp. if it was scenic. :)

Someone thought the rocks in the foreground looked a little too bare, so later, I might add more shrubbage. :)

how big do you typically work? The amount of detail is astounding but the amount of atmosphere is even more impressive!

so how big is this one? Im sorry for being such a pest! I'd just love to see the more detailed versions of these if you paint them so big..and certainly would love to see you offer prints of these, as I'd love to hang quite a few of your works on my wall!

Oh no prob. Thanks for the interest. Yeah, you should see my acrylic paintings. :)

This particular one I believe was actually 4500 x 3200 pixels, 500 dpi.

As for prints, I need to check it out here at dA. Part of it is financial reasons. The other part is I'd hate to invest a lot of money into something like this and not sell more than half a dozen or so...

well, if you run prints at home (I run smaller prints at home to sell at conventions), Im sure you could make a note of it on the bottom of the description c:. I would think there would be more interest in your work beyond myself!

If the images are this large, I wonder if I could ask that maybe you post some closeups of the pieces for the curious minded? Its likely that my screens high resolution just makes the images look smaller than you intended them to be seen as!

What kind of printer do you use? I've printed one or two of my pics at home, and besides having to tweak the colors constantly, I find I lose a bunch of detail in the process as well...even on photographic quality. Maybe it's my printer.

What happens after I'm done with a picture is, I usually downsize them after I'm done. They're far easier to upload into dA that way. What did you wish to know about them?

I use an hp photosmart printer..and while it obviously can't run big prints it actually does quite a good job at getting most of the details squeezed in (but obviously there's only so much you can see on an 8x10 inch print, it has it's limitations!)

Oh and Im just curious about seeing closeups of various parts of the pics, that's all. It just seems a shame to be missing all those beautiful details that you, no doubt, spent so much time putting into the original high resolution file. Im not suggesting upload the actual BIG picture, I wouldn't want people illegally printing your art, but maybe some cropped closeups of the art would be lovely. Let me get an example of what I mean c:

This is a good example of what I meant: [link] full picture and [link] closeup. Of course you can likely just put the cropped versions in your scraps or host them on an outside ssite. And by no means do you even HAVE to do this just because I suggested it. I am just curious to see more up close views of your work since I really enjoy seeing your work personally.

Well, of course it varies...I've gone as large as 4500x3200 with 500 dpi. I'd go larger if I thought my computer could handle it. :)
Thank you.

I like the contrast between areas. Not just the perspective, but also the state of where one puts one's feet. The light dusting in the distance is an awesome effect.

Oh, thank you. :) But it's also one of those situations where I start landscaping and more appear. It's like "Yay, she's into the landscapes! Quick everybody in line!!" You know, like how our characters get sometimes, but only in landscapes. =/
