Smells like snow by Hagge Smells like snow by Hagge
A picture made for :iconflannmoriath:'s advent calendar project.
I wish I had had more time to make a larger picture.

This will be the last picture for a couple of weeks, anyway. :)

...wow. I love the light on the snow, and how the wolf offsets the loneliness of the picture while still giving the impression of an untouched wilderness.

Trust me, the later I stay up, the more description will show up in these comments.

I think this was a real photo! Very good shading. Most of an artists makes the shadows all black, grey of blue. But when the sun goes down, the shadows should be like purple, like on this! I really like this, all the colors and of course, the wolf. :+favlove:

Beautiful! My favorite part about this picture is the tree snow, it looks great :D The golden sun shadows would like better if they were more sharply cut, but I still love it all the same ^^

Very nice scene! I love the sunlight, and the shadows on the landscape. My one criticism would be that compared to the wolf's coat, which is nicely detailed, the snow on the trees looks sort of thick and flat. Still nice, though.

Oh thanks. I wasn't too happy with the wolf, and the next time, I have to remember to work big and shrink it afterward. That way I can get in more detail...I'm STILL learning how to paint digitally.

Thank you though, I appreciate the comment. :)
