Finished full illustration for Fiver! Painting this one constantly made me wish it was Christmas. Lovely clear cold winter night, everything blanketed in snow, warm glow from a quaint mountain town in the distance... Yep. Christmas. <3 Title thought up my MrCuddels, who frequents my stream chat often!

    Ooooh, that is beautiful work! I love your use of colors there. Gives the whole thing a very cold yet peaceful appearance, with the oranges adding a lovely warmth. Also, like the mixing of the colors on the fox. Fantastic stuff.

      Thank you so much! The town glow was such a fun idea, I'm glad Fiver mentioned it. :3

      Same here, it's warm and the days are nice and long. But a reminder of the peaceful chill of winter is pleasant! ^^

    The texture of that tree and the volume of the snow are so perfect! I feel like I could crunch around in it, wheee~

    I totally want to go run around in some snow now and the weather is just getting nice where I live! Beautifully executed. <3

    This looks so beautiful, I love the massive amount of depth in this image. I adore artists who can capture a whole world in a single picture like this, it just gives so much information. I really like how you emphasized the surrounded as much as you do the character. Settings can really create the whole mood of a picture ^^.

      Thank you so much! I've been getting a lot of full illustration commissions lately, and it's been great practice in creating environments with depth and mood. :3

    I absolutely love how you did the aurora Eski.

    It's just so beautiful.

    This scene is so warm and cozy, it makes me think of Christmas and a hot cup of passion tea!
