Blackveil by DonatoArts Blackveil by DonatoArts
One of my favorites from a couple of years ago this painting is a companion piece to another Kristen Britain novel by the same name.  The white banding of the tree trunks was a wonderfully, accidental discovery while working in pencil and chalk in a toned sketchbook.  I knew there was a reason why I love that darker paper!

The suggester said: Blackveil by ~DonatoArts is an absolutely phenomenal piece rich in detail. It is quite obvious that the artist has spent many painstaking hours to complete this masterpiece. ( Suggested by Stabrina and Featured by Astralseed )

The art was the why I bought that series initially.  Even if the book had sucked (it didn't), I wanted the art :D

I just wanted to say "dat composition", really nice use of lines and balance with the white owl against the white in the distance to the right.  Excellent work!
