//critique plz ^^//

I've... I've done it...
FINALLY :faint:
I was working on it for AGES :noes:
:iconletter-hplz::iconletter-aplz::iconletter-pplz::iconletter-pplz::iconletter-yplz: ____ :iconletter-xplz::iconletter-mplz::iconletter-aplz::iconletter-splz:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the most detailed BG I've ever done >.> It's all because I've done sketch on PAPER and then scan it ('cuz I finally got scaneer, WOOO! :dummy:) and then do all the stuff on computer; and because on paper I still think that BG is blank, so I keep add things on it, just add add add.
Fff, those all trees killed my hand :dead: I need a break now xD
Its so freaking STRANGE to do >.>
I wasn't sure, should I do white on one layer and then shades on second third etc. or should I just do it on one layer all, or should I do new layer for every part... :noes: I've done it in this first way :XD:
Soo, here you got Flame (because I wasn't drawing him ATM and he felt depressed and lonely. BTW it's really nice piccy to him, isn't it? >w>)
And Siliana ('cuz I had to put someone here :B)
And Kento (because I wanted to draw him so freaking muchly since a moth now, and it's awesome chara *3* I loved to draw him >w>
And Miranda (it's gifty-suprisy-thingy for Dragona :lol:)

I got a game for ya >w> Try to find all FOUR snowmans! :dummy: yea, I love to put some strange useless details ._.
This shading style... just WOW :O I finally did the shades right! :D It's dark enough ^^
Also, I tryed some experiments with colouring, to make it look moar night-alike and everything, and IT WORKED! 8D Nao, you CAN see it's night yea? And not only because of sky :la:

And OMG look at this moon O3O I've done it all by myself :la: I tryed to look for tutorial, but I didn't found one (T.T) so I tryed by myself :noes: AND it's not as hard as I though! I finally like my BG... WOOOO LET'S DO TEH PARTY!! 8D :icondummydanceplz:
Look! It's Santa Claus! 8D This motive came to my mind while drawing it on paper, and then I almost forgot to add it on computer. It would be less-cool pic without it ;w;
Fff, it's still not the pic I imagined to do one day.
But it looks EXACLY like I imagined it when I started to draw, so I am friggin' happy :la::la::la:

I wrote enough >w>''
Hope ya like it! 8D

and oh look I've got my own watemark now! 8D I've done it accidentally xDDD

:bulletblue: Adobe Photoshop CS4 & Medion's tablet
:bulletgreen: Duuudeee, it took about 18 hours. Yea, 18 friggin hours of work :noes: But it was fun to do ^^ Only part I hated was this forest. After about hour of doing trees I started to copy and paaste paste paste trees xDD

Kento (c) ~xXgunderXx
Miranda (c) ~Dragonaxxx

The Artist thought this was FAIR
4 out of 4 deviants thought this was fair.

This is a lovely piece - the shading, especially on the dragon characters - is very well done. The snow looks very realistic, which is always a good thing!

Vision : I love snowy scenes, and you have done a good job here. The snow looks soft and crunchy. I think you could have made the trees that are closer to the front a little more detailed, but that's just me. The glow of the moon and the street lamp is a nice touch too.

Originality : The scene isn't amazingly original in my opinion, but that doesn't really matter too much. Having the dragons in the snow is an unfamiliar twist.

Technique : I like how you shaded it all the best. Gives the picture more of a texture. Maybe it would have looked a little bit more realistic if you had drawn scales on the dragons, to give them more of a reptilian appearance.

Impact : Overall, I think this is a pretty snow scene, but it could be made better by adding more detail to the main focus (the dragons).
