Awards and Comments

Third Place
What a well-executed forest layout.
Excellent perspective and sense of depth. Great power lines good shadows and accurate detailing.
Healthy plants and attractive side reflections.
I really liked the fluidity of the work congratulations!
— Andre Longarco
The initial impression of a well-maintained piece without algae is always positive. This artwork appears to have been elevated into a more remarkable piece through its natural structure and combination of aquatic plants alongside that good first impression. I believe the artist's uniqueness adds to what could be an otherwise ordinary composition. However in such flawlessly crafted artwork where shortcomings are hard to find even a slight addition of the artist's personal touch could lead to the creation of an even more splendid piece. Thank you for this wonderful artwork and congratulations.

Additional Information Inspired by mangrove forest, reason why I used straight roots for the trees and also aerial roots
I imagined the flooded forest and tried to make it as natural and as wild as I could.
I took the photo with the fishes in the root area because the roots offers shelter for so many species of fish.
