*Points to the top of the waterfall*
You see, right up there, where the other trees are growing out of the main tree?

I want to live there.

At least a tree that'll never be cut down. Wanna build a shack in it.

Great fantasy work !

Nah, nah, a town implies spits, buses with ***** listening to the latest random music from outer space that should've stayed out (), noise, electricity, people, money, shops, political posters, f**king grumpy guys like me... Too much of a deal. *smash*

I'd get a good shack and a coat (it's high up there). And some strength and stuff to get up here.

But you've got a point. We could build a whole city. Let's draw it !1!

Just joking. Anyway, I faved and most important, I like it. ;)

Cheers !

absolutely fantastic! LOVE the detail and contour, truly bringing the 'life tree' to 'LIFE'! haha.. stunning use of cloud and shade, brings just the right feelings to mind.. also, not important, but i think you meant yggdrasil.. but, truly not important when indulging in this truly surreal landscape.. 4 thumbs up, my friend!

thanks :D yeah Yggdrasil is not exactly the kinda spelling that is easy to remember, especially if you're not a native nordic linguist :D Don't get me started on the Finnish myths :D

it would be a bitch to get the bark off haha you could make a viking ship out of the bark. sorry if thats abit random i just got surgery still a bit loopy ahah

HAHAHA, you should put a video on youtube, like that kid after the visit to the dentist :P
but yeah, with that tree a bit of bark would make an awesome viking boat, off course you'd have to make a cart out of the wood too since you'd have to get it overland hundreds of miles :D
