Hope Fails by Exhale-NL Hope Fails by Exhale-NL
Hope Fails
Even when there's no hope left, when all evil of the world is coming right to you and you have no place to shelter, there will always be a little light that tells you that everything is going to be allright. That this feeling won't last forever. As long as your hope doesn't fail, you'll be allright in the end.


Inspired by The Lord Of The Rings.

______________________

A collaboration with *streethawk. He sent me a render because he wanted to learn from me, but I actually liked the final render so much that we decided to make this a collab. I did alot of PS work and this is what came out. We hope you like it... Not only the way it looks but also the meaning of this piece.

Thanks in advance.

I love your ability to take anything, and give it such a surreal atmosphere. The lighting and sense of depth here is amazing, the colors work perfectly. Plus the great render from streethawk, this is a top-notch piece fellas.

Fan-fucking-tastic mate. This must be one of the most detailed pieces I've seen in a long time. I love the render and the brushing is just awesome. Great work, both of you.

wonderful stuff. i think this has some great symbolism. the thing below the crisped detailed lighting below reminds me of the destruction of Mt. Doom, very nice. I'm very impressed with the lighting!

Only complain is that theres too much empty space on both sides. With just a tiny crop, it'll be perfect.

thanks... And about the Frodo thing... I ain't a modelere or a good air brusher, so that would never come from me (i guess ;)). My name is Pepijn by the way, wich is quite the same as Pippin in the movie :D
