Cold Winter by Ashwings Cold Winter by Ashwings
uuugh x__o so many things went wrong with this one, I'm not even going to explain XD Just another one of my plentiful sketches that I had on the go during school, I colored, it and uploaded it, and blah.

Tis Thunah again, where is Hawl? I dunno. Working on the 'vintage coloring theme thing. Wee!

Thunah is a little crazy, and thats why she's running around outside in shorts and stuff in winter.

Okayokayokay. YES I know I used 'warm' colors on this, I am not blind :XD: I wanted to break away from the greys, blues and all around 'cool' colors that people traditionally associate with winter, because when it's winter its not always dreary and blue outside! Especially during a sunset, which its currently doing in the image right now. I named it 'cold winter' specifically for the contrast against the warm hues and yeah.
/end rant!

Where I live it never snows. So the sun will be shining but it'll be 20 or 30 degrees outside! This reminds me of home. :aww:

I know I'll be just one more in the gazillions of coments that this picture has but I wanted to give my 2 cents...
It's amazing!!! Gosh, it's perfect, and all the colors contrasting with the winter idea of the picture... It's so great that I want to make a wallpaper with that if you dont mind.
Please let me know if you have any objections, and also I'm adding you to my favs.
Keep the amazing work!!!

I really like this picture. o_o I love it! The colors, the shape...the balance...I love it. ::favs::

And I was a tad confused about it being winter, based on the color. Funny to see how influenced we are by that stuff, ne? But you could tell she was cold because of her posture and the visible breath! Great job! Her body language really conveys the outer temperature.

Maybe I'm not getting something or it's from something I don't know, but who is Thunah?
I love how you decided to use warm colors instead of cold ones. I like how the wood is detailed, along with the hair. As always, your art is amazing.

Nif Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2006
There is something amazing in this picture: colours at first, so varm and so peaceful, like warm, sunny, summer late afternoon. Her pose is also amazin. Is she smoking?
Ashwings Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2006   Digital Artist
She very well could be XD but no its like the vapor-ee stuff that like happens when its cold out =D
Oh yeah, I am sooooo crappy at explaining things XD
fuzzyllama Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2006

ive always thought of winter as worming rather than driery and cold :D
gym-addict Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2006

ArtemisRunari Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2006
Cool. Love the thematic contrast--warm colors in winter and whatnot. 'Tis spiffy!
DragonOfHeart Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2006

CaptainSkellington Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2006
Buuuh her elbows look cold! I'm feelin' cold just lookin at her :XD: Nice work! I really like how you've broken set with the colours and style.
Child-of-Horus Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
must be a warmish... cold winter? ^^; only thing, well not necessarily wrong, but odd is that there are a ton of warm colors. doesn't really matter tho cause I enjoy all your work regardless. :) :heart:
XxrockgoddessxX Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
what would have swayed me about the title and the image is that she's in summer type clothing..
not that you used warm colours..

but i suppose that doesnt matter either.. this is wonderful
chymes Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006
Wow. It's... LUFFLY. ^^
I like her hair and stuff. The birds in the background seem to almost be glowing in the orange-ness.
But is there supposed to be a dot on her cheek?
Ashwings Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006   Digital Artist
A dot? o__O oh I think you mean the one close to her lip? xD yeah thats a part of here mouth there =D
chymes Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2006
Ah. That. OK, I knew that. :shifteheyes:

i love it! i dont c wat went wrong. wat r u talkin a/b? definite :+fav:
neomonki Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006
Just in comment to those people who don't it's 'wintery' enough, I think the colours are absolutely fine. It especially reminds me of those crazy evenings where it just never seems to get dark because it's so white outside. If you really wanted to do anything else to it, all I'd suggest would be to give a bit of a hint that it's actually winter, perhaps a bit of snow on the top of that wooden pole where she's sitting. Or perhaps take out the pencil linework in her breath and emphasize the white a bit more? Otherwise it's very cute.
RubberbandofDooM Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006 she supposed to look like she has a mustach?
Zih Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006
Her hair and outfit are adorable.
