The Most Precious Gift of All by jbcasacop The Most Precious Gift of All by jbcasacop
Friendship, in my point of view is the most valuable gift one can give because it can open the door to many other beautiful things.

This is my entry for the September art challenge of ImagineFX. I documented the entire creative process and I might post it once I get a proper layout done.

Technicals:

Done using Photoshop CS5
Custom brushes created by me
8 hours

Edit: VOTE OVER. This entry won! I would like to thank everyone who supported me! :)

EDIT October 24, 2010:

My first DD! A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE IT HAPPEN!

There's a steadily increasing amount of individuals who believe that or are wondering if this painting is based on "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein. To tell you the truth, I was actually unfamiliar with that particular story until several have noted the similarities. It is a coincidence. Thanks to those who let me know about the story though. It's sad indeed but interesting! My inspiration for this painting is neither another painting or literary work but rather my friendship with a certain kid in our neighborhood. He's not a relative of mine but he's so nice to me and in return I treat him like a nephew.

:D

Very beautiful and functional composition in which the light creates a unique atmosphere! Generated an illusion of a magic forest, or whether it is rain forest that needs our attention, salvation and cooperation! Whole our world is alive and we all need a friend. I think this wonderful piece of art tell me these things through the beautiful symbols!" tincek-marincek said: "The Most Precious Gift of All by ~jbsc is a gorgeous drawing with fantastic composition and I'm in loved with artist's great combination of colors.

Can I do a painting of this?? Watercolors, I mean?? Is it fine with you??

That would be interesting. Why not? The only things I would ask in return are:

1. You do it for non-profit purposes.
2. You credit me in the description once you post it.
3. Include a link that leads back to the original image.

If we're cool with these terms then by all means, go. I would love to see what you come up with. :)

Yes, I agree. I'm not a pro arist. Just as a hobby. :)
I will credit you, but I dont know how to include a link :D lolz... I'll try to copy-paste.
It will take some time for me to do this. It's like a challenge. Besides i dont have much free time either. I'll try to do it asap. BTW I really loved ur work!! :)
