The Forest by MelissaDalton The Forest by MelissaDalton
This is not new. I actually painting this while still in school 2 months ago. I was practicing landscapes/backgrounds. I didn't post it cause... well I'm too lazy to explain it right now. You can see it now though. xD Seeing as I'm going through an artistic drought.

This thing took me forever- I remember it being a particular pain in the ass to finish. Had to work on it off and on for like a month cause of finals and boredom with it. I really like how it turned out though.

Just like what some of the comments mentioned: the mushrooms, flower, trees, grass and even that little stream of water heading south lol Was this done in Photoshop??

You had told me a while back, on my other account, that I could use this in a BG with my characters if I gave you credit. Thought you would want to see what I did with your Epicly awesome BG. [link]

Would you mind if I used this BG for one of my characters as long as I credit you for it? It's really great and I have been looking for a good BG to use for one of my little character doodles.
