I zoom in and explore with my eyes. Minutes pass as I get joyfully lost in the complexity.  I continually find little pockets of things going on I wasn't perceiving before.  Captivating.

Gorgeous! It reminds me of Gustave Doré's illustrations for the Divine Comedy.

Morbidly magnificent! I love zooming in on your pictures. 
They're good from afar and up close. 

I have similar visions often, I think I've become too lazy to record them.

I was thinking of drawing something like this ever since Kesbet's History of Trees contest. 
I have see this theme other places but I felt it was worth visiting  myself because it stuck with me :) 
I thought of going more ... hmmm... realistic(?) than this and running with a tree corrupted graveyard.... but I kind of wanted to stay away from some of the details involved in that image (like religious iconography .... time specific clothing ... coffins) Maybe I will indulge in those elements some other time. :) 
lazy.... hmmmm.... I think Mountain Dew helped me ..... oh I shouldn't have said that now I really want one....

It's convincingly realistic enough, I think because it's consistent with the rest of your world. But I encourage you to take it further just the same, if you like. 

I think lazy is the wrong word, reluctant to commit maybe. Although I usually get obsessed with the details of whatever I create anyway. 
I'm drinking lots of coffee with lots of cream to carry me through right now. I'll have a near finished picture and strong brown teeth by sunrise!

Yeah .... that's why I kept putting it off myself, I know how I get... I keep thinking before I draw something......... OK this time I am not going to go nuts and overwork it.....
You can see how well I am doing with that.
I almost peed in my pants because couldn't stop drawing.

I love the overall concept and almost Norse-style. Reminds me of the tree of life from Norse mythology. Well done. :clap: :heart:
