Winter Begone by AlectorFencer Winter Begone by AlectorFencer
Winter begone.
Let the flowers in the deep vast forest awake again
and bloom over the land.


Yay for being burnt out...I don't even know how to describe this picture.

Anyway, I'm really happy how this picture turned out in the end. It was sometimes a real struggle but I got there eventually. You might have noticed big changes in the background and colour scheme.

I spent most of the time thinking where to set the next brush stroke and especially thinking of which brushes to use. After browsing my PS brushes and brain, I finally came up with the WIP, which I showed to you already: [link]

The face has changed from the original sketch too because painting fur really didn't work on the base of the sketch: [link]

In the end, I struggled mostly with the background because the colour scheme didn't co-operate with the orginal sketch (trees and mountains), so I changed it after three freaking outs and one banging-the-head-on-the-table.

I will post a walkthrough of this as soon as possible. :D

Thanks a lot for looking! :iconlovegreenplz:
