Snow Rider by stayinwonderland Snow Rider by stayinwonderland
This one started out by studying 2-3 value compositions (after beginning to read Framed Ink).

Really wanting to nail composition this year as it's something that I find quite tricky and elusive. Recommend that book though!

Thoughts and questions welcome.

Follow me here: facebook.com/andywalshart - and get more frequent updates and scribbles.

EDIT: THANKS FOR THE DD!

he's wearing very expensive layers underneath, while swigging from a whiskey flask. Plus, that horse is a flying horse, so the tracks conveniently take him into outer space. Duh. So about all them great art works you've done... ?

Very nice, could work well on a calender...the one nitpick is that the snow around the horse's hooves doesn't seem quite deep enough.  I realize it's walking in a car track, but he seems to be standing on it, not in it.

this is absolutely glorious. The composition is really nice so I now immediately need to check out that book! Particularly like the shadows of the tree branches on the bottom right and the planes of snow-covered rock.

Thanks Cascayd :) Ummm, the main chunk is extracted from a photo, then maybe a few more photos layered over the top, but only the solid silhouettes. Hard to explain though :p

Generally looks great. Love the textures and realism. Nice, realistic shadow of the tree on the snow. I do have an issue with the top of the cloud on the left being to squarey and its edge near the left top corner looks too smooth. While I'm not an expert on riding horses in winter - at this altitude shouldn't the rider at least put some sort of blankiet on the horse? I'm also not sure if that's how snow storms work - put snow on the bark up until the half of the tree, make the snow stick to it, but leave the exposed top half completely devoid of snow.
