Illustration Friday - "Forgotten"


I had forgotten to add a title to this sample cover illustration I had created a few weeks ago. I had originally created it for the Illustration Friday topic, "wide," and asked for your ideas for a title name. I went with Woody's suggestion of The Last Divide. Thanks Woody! I also played a bit more with the illustration.

Awesome composition. You've created excitement and sense of danger (that will be overcome) in this image. I think it is a very sucessful cover image.
