escape by afergusonart escape by afergusonart

Hey guys! This is an image I've been working on on and off for the past two years, basically. Between college, art projects, soccer, and recovery from tearing my ACL in September, I've hardly had any time to pixel-- save for breaks. We're on spring break now, so I thought I would put in the last few hours needed to finish this thing on up! 

This image is the first in a series of three images I'm aiming to create. The unifying theme behind these images will be a sense of the image almost being monochromatic. I wanted to take a few colors and basically construct the entire image with them, attempting to give it an atmospheric feeling by doing so. These landscape-focused images will also all depict a hideaway-- an escape, per say-- some sort of unusual or oddly placed structure, such as this hut in this swampy-lake forest. Essentially the series will all tie in with each other through thematic elements rather than a story or unified colors throughout. Overall I'm very satisfied with the piece but I've been working on it for so long now I just have to call it done. I might edit it in the future with some nit-picking, though. 

So yeah, here it is. Hope you guys enjoy it and hope you're all doing well! 

Adam 

edit: updated! I changed the rocks and a few other problems that were mentioned. hope it's an improvement!

Your style is miles away from what I normally like and aim for but the feel of this image is very much what I am striving for currently.  Very inspirational.

thank you! I was going for a monochromatic look to imply atmosphere-- so that's nice to hear!

Oh yeah man that sounds awesome! You'll definitely have a lot more options once you've got a car. 

I've been pretty good. Still recovering from my torn ACL but I'm getting close to 100% recovery so it's alright haha. College is rough but it's also a lot of fun, so there's that, too. Overall things have been good, though!

I still don't know what an ACL actually is.  I hear it often when watching tna wrestling (usually kurt angle's torn an acl or something) but it seems like it hurts.   Hope it gets all better real soon.

And yeah I can't wait to get on the road and taking on all those things I had to decline before.

it's the anterior crucial ligament in your knee-- it helps allow you to play basically any sport because without it you can't cut and it makes your leg unstable. but yeah, it's getting there. and thanks, I really appreciate it man.
