I love the idea of sheltering in the behemoth mangrove roots. And that looks like an aquaculture farm in the front pen. Love the thought and execution. Looks fantastic!

Amazing painting! I love the detail and the texture on the tree is also really good. I just think that you could have done more with lightfall. If you had added shadows for the roots of the tree then you would get these rays of light coming through the gaps which you could have used to give the scene much more character and atmosphere. Still great work though!

I'd be more afraid of storms without the tree... The tree only falls once after all :P

This is awesome! I need something like this for my world-building at the moment! Perhaps not the gargantuan mangrove, but the stilt houses, definitely!! You done a really good job. I cannot see anything it requires criticism on!

i can only imagine how massive this tree must be, or how small that village actually is.
haha
beautifully rendered, i love how well lived in the town looks.
i can smell the fresh sea air mixed with the earthy-bark smell of the tree roots.
