Winter Calm by Misted-Dream Winter Calm by Misted-Dream
Ugh, finally this one is finished! I'm quite pleased with it, however. :) This is part of my "Antlered Kings" series and will be part of my group show at my college April 1st, along with a few other drawings and paintings. Not really sure what else to say about it. Sorry about the poor quality. If I get an opportunity I'll try and get a better image of it.

11" X 14", mechanical pencil on smooth bristol board. Worked on it rather faithfully over the course of two weeks or so. Multiple refs from the WetCanvas RIL and myself.

SOLD

That's perfect! Everything is great, the foreground looks awesome and the fur of the moose looks so soft and amazing.
And the background is very impressive too. Awesome work!! :hug:

Oh wow these are beautiful, i never really liked deer/moose like animals much but this is gorgeous, his coat looks so velvety and i looooove those trees in the background. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Wow, thanks for the lovely comment! I've always kind of liked them myself (not as much as horses!) but I've gotten into liking them much more this year.

i looooves horses too :) i just find deers are funny shaped and just cant get my head around their awkward shape, graceful animals tho.

Lol, they can be kind of awkward in their poses and stuff. :XD: But it's true, when they run they even rival horses a little in their grace--especially how they can run so elegantly with those huge antlers!

Wonderful drawing :clap: The tree limbs reaching into the sky are exquisitely rendered. I also love how the moose looks so fuzzy in his winter coat. Good luck with your spring art show! I'm sure you will do well :)

Thanks a lot! Haha, the birch tree limbs and individual branches were one of the most time consuming parts. :XD: And thanks; I'm really excited for the show--get to dress up and have food and all that. :D

So amazing, the detail is impressive. Everything is perfect and I have to say that if you would have added the misty breath coming from the moose's nostril, it would have look perfect here. Great job!

Thank you! :hug: I actually thought about adding that, but one of my refs for the moose didn't have that and I really liked how it looked against the snow. I also thought I'd try and make a winter piece that didn't have breath for a change, lol. :XD:

:icondauntless-gothika:
Dauntless-Gothika Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2011  Student Digital Artist
It still looks awesome without it, I just thought it would look good there as well, but I know what you mean about having it in almost every winter piece. I admire you for taking so long in every piece adding all the details because I know they really can challenge your patience :)

Lol, I apparently need to control my urge to create winter breath in every scene. :lol: But yes, it would've looked nice indeed. :) And thanks; I know the only way to get better is through patience, so I'm willing to go for it.

You are right, patience is the key to art or realistic art so I will have to put myself to it and be extremely patient :)

It is so rewarding, though, when you make a successful piece that really required a lot of your patience. :nod:

Yeah I know the feeling of it. For example, in this digital painting [link] I did of my beloved dog that passed away I took my time and it paid off. Now a fellow worker wants me to make him a similar painting as a commission of his two dogs. Patience like you said pays off, it only takes a little more time for me to finish it lol

Yes, exactly! And that painting turned out really lovely! That's the case when all things pay off in the end, and it seems that after such a project, similar pieces in the future aren't as big of a deal anymore. :D

Thanks a lot! I was really sad to see how grainy the whole thing turned out, but hopefully I can scan it with the school's scanner or something--there's smaller details in there that can't be seen because of the grainyness. D:
