Avalon by Iribel Avalon by Iribel
Some kind of sister piece to my previous work, Atlantis. It's not exactly how I imagine a mythical island of Avalon but pretty close to it.


"Avalon is a legendary island somewhere in the British Isles featured in the Arthurian legend, famous for its beautiful apples. Avalon is the place where King Arthur was taken to recover from his wounds after fighting Mordred at the Battle of Camlann. Some traditions claim that Arthur had never really died, but would return to lead his people against their enemies."

This is wonderfully put together. Especially the waterfalls are very nicely done and make the place look even more impressive. I also like the small stars, they're a nice detail. All in all, amazing work!

this is indeed beautiful, but I dont think Avalon would be look like this. I think it would look more like a beautiful island with meadows and appletrees a great building in earth or something.

Wow, I absolutely fell for this at first sight. The coloring is so good - it sets the atmosphere perfectly, especially with the cloudy background. I love the little shine at the top of the island - it gives it that mysical feel. I understand with such a nice piece you would be concerned about art thieves, but is there a bigger version I could see? I'd love to look at the details. You can note me or smack a big watermark on it if it makes you feel better ^^;

I think the dangling glows belong more with Atlantis since Avalon is more of a mystical-magical place than a festive place. Avalon also seems like a river would belong in it more than a waterfall - quiet serenity rather than splashy showiness

Still, I have to say that this is a thousand times more than anything I could have done, and the stone architecture and pinnacle of light really belong here. I like the stone arches at the bottom (they seem like they're holding the island up, or like they're the grips of the island), crowned by the tower. It's a wholesome, complete transition. Very nice lake - especially the lilypads. I can just imagine Morgan le Fay's barge cutting quietly, silently, through the lilies.

Thank you for your comment! :hug: I agree on many aspects: this piece didn't start as a depiction of Avalon - otherwise it would have ended up being quite different since in my imagination Avalon is essentially a place of great serenity. However, more I worked on this piece, more I felt like it's indeed a piece of Arthurian legends I'm working with. I'm really glad you like this piece after all.

And sorry for this seriously late reply. :ashamed:
