Could I have my quarter back by grundalug Could I have my quarter back by grundalug
Hey you know what? You just keep it.

A few months ago, when I knew even less about building a scene I failed so hard at this idea that I buried it on my hard drive. Well It is Christmas now, and I needed to do something snowy to get me in the mood. So I re-painted it.

Better than the original, which will never see the light of day. Still not super happy with the comp. And yes, I whipped his cape becuase I didn't feel like working out anatomy issues. I am lazy (It's Christmas, that is my gift to myself)

Still digging the super loose hard flat brush I have been using.

Who reads these descriptions anyway? How pretentious am I sounding at the moment?

Love the piece! Reminds me a little of Skyrim. =P

It looks like the base of it is down really well, like you could easily spend a few hours on it and make it look ten times more amazing; judging how this was two years ago though, my bet is you're already well beyond doing anything more with it; in any case, good work! =)

Thanks man.

You'd be surprised. This remains one of my favorite pieces so I might still come back to it. Might do more harm than good though. I feel like I've advanced in the opposite direction in ability since I've made it.

Very very awesome. And yeah, I read the descriptions - it's always interesting to see the artist's information on the piece. At least I think so. What I don't like is the description like "Here's a piece I repainted." and that's it. :)

I very much like this style, it looks epic :) One thing that bothers me is that the rain is going in the opposite direction to his cloak & hat tassel thinger - so which direction is the wind blowing?

Haha yeah. It made more sense to me in the composition. Just look at it like wind kicking loose snow off the ground. I know the streakyness implies rain. Ah well. I'll get it next time! ;)

Thanks

i dig the landscape and how you really made this look like icy snowy weather.
The cape is okay - but the head of the person is super hard to read. you may define it a bit better.
good work on the colors though

Thanks wolk. Still struggle with placing figures into scenes and making them read correctly. Might go back and work on it when I get some time. Always liked the idea of this one.
I liked the colors too.
:)
