Thank you very much, I get a lot of comments on this work, I am thinking about making a series of these types of vector images for a show this summer, but I have to get some time to sit down and create them.
This uses a photo of a tree combined with some illustrator work for the birds (There are only a six or seven bird drawings in this image, just scaled and repeated) and the second tree (complete line drawing). Then I added gradients in to the image in Illustrator for the sun and the sky and reflection in the "water". the roots on the bottom took longer than the entire image. I have had several offers from companies wanting to purchase this for their use, but I like it too much to sell the image. This entire composition never happened anywhere, it is all bits of two images and a ton of time in Adobe Illustrator.
