The Wood Between the Worlds by Kecky The Wood Between the Worlds by Kecky
The Magician's Nephew is definitely my favorite Narnia book, and definitely high up on the list of my favorite books ever. Here is my sorry attempt at a tribute.

Okay, so maybe I actually like how this turned out quite a lot. It still doesn't live up to the book.

The Wood Between the Worlds by ~Kecky beautifully illustrates a classic book and captures a delightful and fanciful storybook feel-- this piece will surely transport you to another world! ( Featured by aunjuli )

Oh man, this gave me nostalgia. I had this book before we moved, but now it's in storage... Lovely piece! The textures and everything are wonderful!

This makes me so happy, no one ever talks about this book and it is definitely the best in the series (in my opinion). I love the illustration : )

By any chance do you sell this as a giclee print or in some other form? I'd love to purchase it and frame it for my home!

I've had Narnia on my mind a little lately, and after typing in the wood between the worlds I find this nice artwork, a well done interpretation :)

This looks just like I imagined it when i read the book. Magician's Nephew is my favorite, too.

I'LL JUST BE OVER HERE NERDING OUT ABOUT THIS BOOK NOW. <333 Very classic, very clean, but still very descriptive of the book's setting... love this illustration.
FrozenTKPassion Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This looks really really good!!! If this is an sorry attempt what would your best creations look like( I saw them too:D)
Anyways even though I liked The Magician's Nephew I enjoyed more 1st, 2nd and 3rd...Maybe because I grown more found of the Pevensies...:hmm:
Pawn4King Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2011
It is good work.
I specially like the "mirror of Galadriel" detail of seeing in the water images of the destination world.
amp3dup Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2010
This is amazing! by far the best Magician's Nephew fan art that I've found! Magincian's Nephew is also my favorite Narnia Book!

Love it! :D
scarlethorn Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010
Honestly-this could be an illustration in the book. I love the old-fashioned tints to it and the image of Charn in the pool water. It looks like an old illustration.
trottle-a-swan Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010
I loved the image of being able to drop into other worlds. Beautiful rendition of this scene.
FayetteAethelwyne Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
Oh my lord, mine too! Its so under rated!!!
I wish they would hurry and make the movie of this book, I love different interpretations.
You're great.

I read the Magician's Nephew, and I though the Wood Between the Worlds was a really neat concept. (Heck, the Narnia series is a really neat series.) Thanks for drawing it, this made my day!

"The Magician's Nephew" has always been my favorite as well. It's just as I imagined it.

Hope you don't mind me using this on a blog post about the Wood Between Worlds. I think the print is lovely. If you'd like me to change it, though, please let me know.

Whilst looking for Narnia fanart I stumbled across your gallery, I have to say this is my favorite. :D
The detail of Charn at the bottom of the pool is a love.
furious-teapot Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009  Student Digital Artist
This was such an amazing concept by C.S. Lewis, it still lives up to todays standards, even sets it in terms of world-to-world travel. It was so mysterious, I'm quite fond of this book also.

Go. Narnia! Love it! The Magician's Nephew was a great book :) One of my faves in the series :)
