Winter Pursuit by FireMaster13 Winter Pursuit by FireMaster13
Full illustration commission for Anbessa on FA. He wanted me to depict a character from his species hunting a stag-like animal in winter and I was all too willing to try. I got some better practice with pine trees and playing with the snow on them. I enjoyed tampering with the species and making up my own stag-type creature.

I like this piece, all the motion and trees and details. The spear and the trees are probably two of my favorite parts, just because they're so intricate. Very nice work :3

Okay I melted when I saw the tiger and the fur and stuff but then I took a closer look at the snow. The snow on the ground. Holy Moly! That looks too good! o.o And it's so subtle but it looks so real!

Thank you! I've wanted to make my snow more believable and was quite happy with how this turned out. Before I was very determined with shades of blue, but by adding a lot of purples and gray, I was able to make more contrast. :heart:

Thank you very much! I really wanted to make the snow and trees look good, since they're not my forte.

The snow detail is great, especially on the trees and around the feet.

And in your other comment, you say your in Colorado? I used to live there, such an awesome place. I miss it so much.

Thank you very much! I'm very new to painting snow, but I tried.

And yes, I currently live in Colorado. It just realized 'oh, right, it's winter. I should act like it'.

The last two years I lived there had a lot of snow in the winter. It made for some amazing scenery both during and after winter.
