Far Away - Forest by banihilman Far Away - Forest by banihilman
"A cool breeze caresses the man's weathered face as he rides into the forest."

Another one in a series of paintings inspired by Red Dead Redemption.

//While playing the game, the environments and the journey the main character (John Marston) takes, inspired me to create my own sort of story and environments based on a man on a horse exploring all these different and unique lands.

Enjoy!

Edit: This got a DD? Nice! Unexpected to say the least. Thanks for all the love. :D

Artfully painted sweeping trees and winds, but what is that pole on his back? A flag?
