Big Old Gnarly Tree April 8, 2015 by jashear I was inspired to paint a big old gnarly tree. I liked the idea of these cenaur type warriors making their way through this fantastical forest.
I had the opportunity to see your illustration “Temple ruins”, I like it a lot.
I don’t know how you do that, is this a photo you are reworking with Photoshop for a video game ?
I would like to paint it with acrylics, let me do that ? I mention your name naturally if I sell the painting ( 60×75)
Thank you for your answer .

Thank you! Yes, you are free to make a painting of Temple Ruins and sell it. Let me know how it turns out.
May I please have your permission to use this work (“Big Old Gnarly Tree”) as part of my own creation? I’m not an artist by any means but for fun I like to make composite pictures from a mixture of 2D and 3D art and models. The awesome tree in your artwork is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’m not going to sell what I make and I promise to include your name as the original copyright holder. I’ll send you a link to the finished item for you to approve if you’d like. It’s a beautiful picture and has just the right theme and feel for what I’m hoping to make.
Thanks for your time.
Go for it! Thank you for asking though…appreciate it. Look forward to seeing what you come up with.
That’s great, thank you very much. I’m hoping to get it done in the next week or two. Cheers 🙂
I’ve done a quick preliminary version: https://www.flickr.com/gp/adamneilward/899vN6 (a private link).
I think it still needs a bit of tweaking here and there to get the perspective right and I need to fix the emissive lighting on the side that faces the tree, but this is the general idea I’m going for. The inspiration for this fan art is a podcast I listen to called “Hello from the Magic Tavern”.
Please let me know what you think (good or bad, I don’t mind :)).
