The Great Hike by mynti The Great Hike by mynti
Based loosely from this stock photograph: [link]

The backpack and water bottle were referenced from life, for the person I didn't use a reference.

I started this painting back in September but it's taken me ages to finish. I took a long pause from start to finish after being a bit overwhelmed with the sheer complexity of this.

Much thanks to `memod for his pushing me to continue and for all his helpful critiques. It may have started as a gift for my mother but my dedication for this painting is to Dan.

Enjoy our planet, it's the only one we've got!

The suggesters of this gorgeous work, "I'm in awe of this painting. The work is amazing and absolutely wonderful, and the details are just magnificent. The first thing I remember doing when I first saw this image is just sitting there mouth wide open and staring at the image for minutes." ( Suggested by JurgenDoe and Featured by WDWParksGal )
