Gebruik je bij dit soort tekeningen een ref? Of doe je het allemaal uit je hoofd?

ik gebruik meestal meerdere verschillende fotos voor inspiratie/refs en maak zo mijn eigen ding. 500px.com is een site met veel mooie fotos. :)

Oh dankjewel voor de site! Ik typte altijd maar hetzelfde op google en kwam er niet veel verschillends, moet je hiervan lid zijn of kun je zo ook alles zien?

je kunt alles gewoon zien :) als je op de voorpagina bent klik je op " or discover must see photos" en dan kun je gewoon browsen en zoeken.

Wow, you captured the mood and feeling of wintertime in the mountains very well! As someone who lives right next to the Canadian Rockies, I can assure you, the first thing I thought of when I saw this was home.

Amazing job! Keep up the good work. ^^

*w* Eeeee~ :music* The choice of colors, lighting and the mixtures of hues just-- *flails arms in retarded flapping motion* Violets, pinks, blues, greys, orange, white, green and I even see the faint paw prints you painted into the forward shadows near the tree on the left.

That is just so.. fantastic. Can't describe how this look. So real, I love the left tree, and the one you blured at the right. Also the mountains looks so realistic! Did you use any referense for this? If you didn't you got an amazing fantasy xD The northen lights and the stars is really good drawed <:
