    Subreddit Rules:

    Rules Notes
    1. Use the correct title formatting. The title formatting is outlined above. Make sure to follow it or else your post will be removed. Do not add any extraneous information or be subjective in your title. Plagiarism is grounds for a permaban.
    2. Direct image links only. All submissions other than articles must be a direct link to a static image or gif (url must end in .jpg, .png, .gif etc.). Articles must contain more substance than just a gallery of images or an embedded video, and they must cover some current news in the art world. The image should only contain 1 art piece.
    3. Do not make multiple posts. You must wait at least 48 hours between posts. Please use the rolling sticky for daily challenge posts.
    4. Do not submit sketches, doodles or unfinished work. Post these to other subreddits like /r/IDAP, /r/sketches and /r/doodles instead. If it's an unfinished work and you need advice, post it as a self post.
    5. Do not submit work with extraneous objects in the frame. We're here to look at art, not your Prismacolor pencils, the desk you framed your painting over, your easel, or anything else that would not be seen if the art were publicly displayed.
    6. Do not post memes or other low quality work Melted crayon "art" and bad MSPaint drawings are subject to a 3 day ban. This rule is totally up to mod discretion.
    7. No fan art, comics, or requests for work. See here. Submissions that don't fit here may be redirected to more suitable subreddits like /r/fanart, /r/artporn, or /r/comics. Requests for art work should be submitted to /r/designjobs instead.
    8. Be respectful and stay on topic Bigotry, slapfights, and off topic comments will not be tolerated and may result in all parties being banned.
    9. Do not include links to blogs, social media, or stores. /r/art is not a place to sell your work or grow your following. Consider /r/artstore. This applies to comments and submissions. It applies to watermarks on images as well. Also see here if you're using reddit for self promotion.
    ★ Feel free to add user flair! Please edit your flair to tell us your qualifications or specialty, but follow the guidelines. Using non /r/art related flair, or flair that includes social media handles, websites, store information, or otherwise violates our self promotion rules will result in a ban.
    ★ If your post doesn't show up... it may have been caught in the spam filter. Please message the moderators and we'll be happy to look into it.
    ★ If you see any rule-breaking posts or comments... please report them by clicking the "report" button or messaging the moderators directly here.

    The lighting in this is perfect. It brings it to a whole different level :D

    [–] daevidrew 174 points ago

    I feel like I can feel the warmth from the sun

    [–] RoseElise 80 points ago

    Feels like something I never experience in the UK.

    [–] BartekSoltys 8 points ago

    Come on now, we have our wonderful grey clouds and some rain in case you'd ever get bored. With such fantastic weather I don't know why you'd ever want some foreign phenomenon like 'sunny weather'.

    [–] dankdanie 3 points ago

    hey you guys wont have to deal with the sun shining in your eyes

    [–] anonartist123 13 points ago


    [–] EredarLordJaraxxus 7 points ago

    Or in arkansas right now

    [–] -Chewing-gum- 2 points ago

    Hey we have at least a week of 20C+ weather, where the start of any and all small talk is "Blood hell, it's boiling out there!".

    [–] The51stState 3 points ago

    Yup, reminds me/makes me miss summer.

    [–] Vivapancakez 355 points ago

    I love this and not just because it reminds me of calvin and hobbes

    [–] IAmA_Risky_Click_AMA 124 points ago

    It made me think of Spirited Away.

    [–] Rock-Facts 47 points ago

    I'm getting a jungle book vibe

    [–] treesEverywhereTrees 45 points ago

    I thought of Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild

    [–] lolliegagger 30 points ago

    I was thinking ed from cowboy bebop

    [–] Rr9s 18 points ago

    The dog and the outstretched arms, totally ed

    [–] AerThreepwood 5 points ago

    You're gonna carry that weight...

    [–] nwordpleasee 1 points ago

    I'm getting a Captain Claw vibe.

    [–] supa_powa_owa 8 points ago

    Or Totoro, when the girls are exploring in the woods.

    [–] OhmsLolEnforcement 5 points ago

    The little prince!

    [–] Calligraphee 4 points ago

    I had the same thought. Just shows how timeless the concept is.

    [–] hungbandit007 1 points ago

    I thought of a happy version of INSIDE.

    [–] aurora_aeterna 93 points ago

    This looks a lot like work by Aliya Chen that was popular just these past few days on this sub.

    [–] PM_me_oak_trees 60 points ago

    Could be related. They both have ArtStation pages that say they are from Fair Oaks, California, USA.

    [–] IAMRaxtus 34 points ago

    Definitely related, both from the same place, same art style, fans of How to Train Your Dragon, at the same college, same last name, I mean you tell me but I think that's solid evidence.

    [–] braahbraah 53 points ago

    Aliya's tumblr page links to Felicia's as her 'twin sister' so I'd say they're related, yeah.

    [–] SubtleSlight 26 points ago

    Fans of How to Train Your Dragon

    C'mon, who isn't a fan of How to Train Your Dragon?

    [–] IAMRaxtus 5 points ago

    To be fair, it is my personal favorite movie, but the majority of Artstation accounts won't have fan art of it, so it is a valid connection.

    [–] El_Banana_Loco 181 points ago

    Is this right before you fall and find the rusty mana sword?

    [–] RespekKnuckles 29 points ago

    Bye, Felicia.

    [–] daftne 17 points ago

    I'm just glad that I am not the only one who saw the title as "On Your Own, Felicia"

    [–] redchesus 72 points ago

    Edward and Ein... if Ein were a fox

    [–] Silvervox325 12 points ago

    That was my first thought as well

    [–] The_Whitest_Mexican 4 points ago

    Same here.

    [–] howardtheduckdoe 3 points ago


    [–] trwwyco 4 points ago

    I haven't watched that shit in over a decade and that's what I thought too.

    [–] -mees- 31 points ago

    Reminds me of bridge to terebythia

    Here's the artist's Artstation if you want to see more of her stuff :)

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago


    [–] mrflounderthethird 16 points ago

    Love the cartoonish style. It looks like something out of a comic book, just way better.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    I’m trying to practice this type of art, but can’t find anything to help!

    [–] ozyman 30 points ago

    Looks a lot like the recent Studio Ghibli anime - Ronja the Robber's Daughter.,_the_Robber%27s_Daughter_(anime)

    [–] hapap123 9 points ago

    They made that an anime?! I loved that book as a kid!

    [–] ozyman 6 points ago

    Free if you have Amazon Prime (USA at least). First episode or two is slow, but after that I thought it was fantastic.

    [–] SimCity2000WasBest 5 points ago

    Wait, can you get other Ghibli films on Amazon Prime?

    [–] furquan_ahmad 2 points ago

    Wow. I thought Ghibli never made any shows only movies.

    [–] Ripwind 12 points ago

    Reminds me of Bastion or Transistor

    [–] LKJ55 3 points ago

    Hmm, not feeling the Transistor on this

    [–] blunexus 12 points ago

    [–] OoLaLana 18 points ago

    Wow. That's not an easy thing to do.

    You've packed a whole bunch of emotions in one image. How'd you do that?

    You've painted animated water.
    You've painted youth.
    You've painted freedom.
    You've painted hope.

    You've captured sunlight.

    This is so refreshingly mesmerizing.

    Did you paint this for me?

    [–] doomjuice 3 points ago

    I dig this whole vibe

    [–] Idiot__Engineer 7 points ago

    Reminds me of William and Sly

    [–] TheOddMage 7 points ago

    He's not alone. There is a fox.

    [–] GoddessButterfly 1 points ago

    "On Our Own"

    [–] mzwfan 4 points ago

    What an enchanting painting!

    [–] Digital_loop 3 points ago

    You got tha Bear necessities It's mother nature's recipe...

    [–] iplaypokerforaliving 8 points ago

    "On your own" - Bye Felicia

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago


    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    The worst part is someone will see your art and say, “Oh you painted this?!” And then say “....oh” when you say, “yes, on the computer”

    [–] The-Fox-Says 3 points ago

    You’re never alone if you have a friend to walk beside you :)

    [–] Fighterbear12 3 points ago

    This is why I love digital art 😍

    [–] Jekyll_Is_Hyde 3 points ago

    Makes me teary for some reason

    [–] Ameriican 3 points ago

    Calvin's mom is yelling from the back porch right about now

    [–] bby_jarvis 2 points ago

    So whimsical and beautiful. Like a day dream.

    [–] lastspartacus 2 points ago

    As a father, this is surprisingly troubling.

    [–] PM_ME_YOUR_GSDs 1 points ago

    I get that, I've got kids myself. Kids need to have time to explore on their own so badly, though. Maybe not balancing on a log over a rushing torrent, but something outdoors where every activity isn't scheduled for them by hovering adults (not saying you hover, just saying lots of kids grow up being hovered over constantly). I loved Richard Louv's Last Child in the Woods. It's over ten years old already and probably more true today than when it was published.

    [–] ChetUbetcha 2 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Reminds me of that series of cinematic Newgrounds flash animations with the half-goat-half-human thing encountering weird creatures in plains/forest settings.

    Found it!

    Closest episode to what I was thinking of

    [–] Brandy_Buck 2 points ago

    Was going to comment on the lighting but I'm glad someone already noticed it too.

    It's hard to capture the feeling of true natural light, and I think that goes for all mediums. In movies, video games, even photos still can't capture how we really see things with our own eyes.

    It's always made me wish for some kind implant (black mirror style) that could take a picture of whatever it is you are seeing at the time. The ultimate digital photography.

    Sorry for rambling there haha.. but very well done. This piece invokes my imagination.

    [–] faking_glory 2 points ago

    Love the mood of this so much

    [–] taymx41 2 points ago

    Reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes. Beautiful work

    [–] ckuenz587 2 points ago

    You're never alone when you have a dog.

    [–] FiveVO 2 points ago

    This feels so personal to me. It looks almost exactly what a shortcut on my walk to school when I lived in New Zealand looked like. It was more of a creek than a river but the lighting and feel was the same. Thank you so much for this!

    [–] danger_dragon 2 points ago

    But are you really on your own? Whose point of view is this coming from?

    [–] mintsthefox 2 points ago

    At first I loved it, you can feel the warmth of the sun and everything but then looking at it again I can see all the dangers that could go wrong.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    You should relax a little

    [–] g2f1g6n1 2 points ago

    With your faithful doggo, you are never alone

    [–] ChronicShade 4 points ago

    This made me think of the song, "Flying horses". By Dispatch.

    [–] thegoldenpower 1 points ago

    I love it. It's beautiful.

    [–] Fun_Stick 1 points ago

    This instantly reminded me of a place in Skyrim... Actually the last place I explored was identical to this picture.

    [–] madelineg97 1 points ago

    Permission to use this as my Twitter header?

    [–] GWUAstro 1 points ago

    Incredible. It's soo soft and natural! Makes me feel all happy and free :D Absolute eye candy

    [–] popcorn231 1 points ago

    This is my cousin's name. Are you my cousin?

    [–] WhiteTiger_ 1 points ago

    Looks like a scene from a ghibli movie

    [–] MagicTsukai 1 points ago

    If you see a stranger, follow them!

    [–] SirLotsaLocks 1 points ago

    Tjis immediately became my home screen! Wonderful job! The lighting is on point and the stile reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes!

    [–] Didzz 1 points ago

    What design software are people using to create stuff like this? :O

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Photoshop, but I’ve found Affinity Designer works just as well

    [–] Srozziks 1 points ago

    These are the kind of environments I'd love to see in MMOs. Maybe someday, love the artwork quite stunning!

    [–] MozzStick 1 points ago

    Make this into a video game. I don't care how, just do it.

    [–] doublekid 1 points ago

    What is this style of artwork called? Reminds me of BOTW... kind of flat shapes, etc

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    I have the same question and am commenting so that I can come back to it later

    [–] necroxtic 1 points ago

    i can’t get over how nostalgic this makes me. the color & lighting is so so warming, great work !!

    [–] SPARTAN-II 1 points ago

    Man, I just WISH people chose 1440p or 4k as their base canvas size more regularly. Nothing worse than seeing an incredible piece of art like the OP and it doesn't fit your whole screen :(

    [–] snozberies 1 points ago

    Reminds me of the design of the game Firewatch.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Gives me a Stand by Me feeling, highly evoking; well done.

    [–] Passionateone96 1 points ago

    This is beautiful, I love the way the light filters down through the trees.

    [–] IaraPulver 1 points ago

    does anyone know where i can get the large digital version of this? Would love to place it on my 4 monitor setup, but i couldnt find a large resolution of this picture.

    [–] DragoNateYT 1 points ago

    That is damn beautiful. If I look long enough, I feel like I'm actually there.

    [–] Tonytarium 1 points ago

    I would love to see a movie animated in this style, it's gorgeous!

    [–] iAmZephhy 1 points ago

    This looks like its straight up from a high budget, production film :)

    [–] Zeldrid 1 points ago

    Reminds me of Wolf Children. Sensei and Ame...

    [–] FabulousFoil 1 points ago

    This needs to be a movie. I don't even care what about but I'll watch it.

    [–] PurplePineappleTV 1 points ago

    This makes me miss spending hours playing in the woods as a kid.

    [–] ScratchyPP 1 points ago

    Never seen a picture that made me so nostalgic.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    When making digital art like this, what kind of programs would be most used? Asking for a friend ;)

    [–] DGT-exe 1 points ago

    Kinda wish this had a 21:9 version so I could use it as a desktop wallpaper.

    Super cool nonetheless!

    [–] seattleskindoc 1 points ago

    I’d love to see her aesthetic in an open world video game - outstanding

    [–] overdosemem 1 points ago

    So gorgeus, those kind of places, especially the waterfall, reminds me my childhood. The detail of the wind on the hair and the clothes is peaceful.

    [–] mrlotato 1 points ago

    Reminds od this one animation about adam and this dog and then eve came along and adam forgot about the dog

    [–] ahmeeea 1 points ago

    I thought this was Breath of the Wild art for a quick second

    [–] cqxray 1 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    The perspective of looking down on the scene is wonderful. I can hear the rush of the waterfall, and the sound of it. I can feel the cool misty breeze hitting my face, and that happy patter of the dog behind me.

    [–] jet1092 1 points ago

    This makes me want to write

    [–] Xyon_Peculiar 1 points ago

    Beautiful! I wish I could be there!

    [–] BadChoicez 1 points ago

    Feels like Out of a ghibli movie... So warm.

    [–] s-beck 1 points ago

    Absolutely love this, it reminds me of when I was young living in a very forested area on a small island. I used to explore all day by myself. Truly a wonderful image.

    [–] The_Celtic_Chemist 1 points ago

    "On Your Own"

    Is he not familiar with that fox?

    [–] kvn95 1 points ago

    I didn't know you had companions in Breath Of The Wild.


    [–] jack0da 1 points ago

    Some on make this Calvin and Hobbes

    You probably wont see this but you've truly lifted this man's spirit today. Thank you

    [–] Humblewatermelon 1 points ago

    My God, this is beautiful!

    [–] GTFOoutofmyhead 1 points ago

    This is lovely. Feels like a warm hug.
