A New Beginning

Posted Jul 14, 2020, 5:32:24 PM UTC

This lake is believed to hold great magical capabilities. Those that find this lake are said to obtain a second chance at what they desire most.

While some believe this legend, others believe that the lake doesn't even exist.


What do you believe??

    The moon here is pretty, I like how you added the darker portions of it. With the reflection of the mountains in the lake, I feel the white border throws off the effect- I imagine its supposed to distinguish where the water stops and land begins, however it gives off the impression that there's a light source rimming the shore, when there is not. An alternate way to accomplish this would be to add more fluctuation to the water and mute the tones some. Lake surfaces are never flat, they're affected constantly by forces such as the wind and lunar pull, and you do show that here, but bumping up that texturing would really solidify the feel of water. Using a pale tone somewhere between the sky tone and the moon tone to show more undulation in the water's surface would be a great means to accomplish this.

    The overall feel of this is very peaceful and quiet, this lake has to be magical for people to not find it so often, it looks huge.
