Leap of Faith by BillCorbett Leap of Faith by BillCorbett
I painted this for a friend

Unfotunately I can't remember my original poem for this, but I do remember that this is about taking oportunities when they come your way. Also it's about being cautious and not entirely throwing yourself into fates hands, more that you should capture the moment!

The colors of Leap of Faith by *BillCorbett blew me away at first glance; upon closer inspection, the tiny details and lovely idea behind the piece did the same. Don't forget to full view! ( Featured by silentkitty )

I love tree people. I've done some myself, but your style is much more professional looking than my own.

Love the colours on this, the skyline really adds that dramatic touch!

Nice subtle angle gives the illusion of movement....

I think I did, it started out as a cloud picture which I left for a while before tackling the foreground :) My memory is rusty (must be my age) ;) Thanks :)

This is a very beautiful piece. I tried to comment earlier and DevArt was not working right, so here I am to try again. I was really inspired by it, as it made me think of a friend of mine and an inner reflection of himself. Very nice.

I love how the clouds seem to grow out all around the sun; it makes for a very pleasing piece of eye candy. The lighting is very realistic, and I have to say that this is a very original concept, executed really well.
The little details just blew me away. The grass and the flowers look so lifelike! And the little details in the bark of the tree are amazing. I love the little bird, it adds a bit of cute to the mix.
The textures, the lighting, the subject matter, I love everything about this. Oh, and congratulations on the feature.

Sometimes it pays and sometimes it dosent to run headlong into something. I'm of the opinion that risks have to be calculated according to your status in life :) Thanks for dropping by :)
