Night-Time Enchanted Forest

My theme was "Chaotic" however it looks more Tranquil. I really got these themes mixed up! xD I got inspiration from the forests in the movie "Avatar" which is mainly why the color scheme looks really "futuristic" I can say I like the color scheme on this better than the day, but that's just me. I played a lot with warm and cool colors, was fun getting the right shadows done. Don't tell anyone but I got this composition from a photo someone took. So I had to flip it and make it my own. Incorporated a lot elements to make it look like it's alive and growing.

Day-Time Forest Rendering

Spring Semester is over and now I have more time to work on my personal work and just HAVE FUN AND RELAX!!! I'm going to be taking a break from painting forests right now haha.

My theme was "Tranquil" however it seems more chaotic. My intention of this forest to make a it look "alive" and actually "growing". The long grass and the wind blowing throughout the forest added some elements to that. Here's a progression:
