The bad weather here in Denmark, inspired me to make a winter scene. It is made in MyPaint, and edited in Photoshop. I used a inverted grungemap to get the texture. I think it gives a nice cold feel to it all.
This is... wow, I'm speechless. :''> You've done great job, especially character looks amazing. I really love his expression! Also trees are nicely done. This is so inspiring that I can hear new melodies in my head... I really should go to play them and make a song. xD And yeah, picture has that nice cold feel you talked about. :>
I agree with queenshadows. I really feel the rangers (?) feelings, and the background helps set the mood too. I love the details on his armor, and how you lightly touched the background behind him: It really expresses what the vocal point is. You also brought some "life" into this by adding rays of light, and snowflakes falling onto the ground softly. Amazing job I'd say!
