This image was originally made for a project that took a different direction so in the end the image was not needed. However i did record a lot of screenshots in order to show my process of building up an image from start to finish.


the video is here please watch in HD only --------->>> [link]


thanks to Topher... check out his work on his DA page [link] for putting the video together so well :D

and also to Lyssa [link] for helping out also :)

That is just breath taking! The angle really makes the size of the castle hit home and the ice and snow is beautifully formed. :+fav:

Incredible drawing. Nice use of gradients in the background for color.

Do you mind trying to lead me to a tutorial or something so I can learn to draw like this?

I hate to bother you but perhaps you can take a moment to tell me what I/O device you use for drawing in your computer. My soon to be twelve-year old daughter may have some desire and perhaps talent or artistic skill. I would like to get her something so she can move beyond using the mouse when she chooses to put down her pencils, pens, brushes and markers to use her laptop computer. I have installed version 11 of Adobe Illustrator and version 8 of Adobe Photoshop. I know they are both a bit dated but the CS set is so expensive. If there is some other software that she should master reply with details if you can. Thanks and even if there is no response as I know I have no right to expect any, please know that you are inspiring others.

You managed to create such an fresh and freezy athmosphere, I can almost smell the wintery air when watching those snows flying with the wind :)

Hello there! really like this piece of yours. Real cool to see the progress of it as well. Inpiring to watch how quick you get so much depth in the image. But you used a couple of layers for this surely? Asking cause I remember reading a coment of yours saying you avoided layers :]

I just watched your time-laps for this - AMAZING! It's incredible how realistic you painted the ice right from the beginning. You have an excellent command of color and tones.
