Biting Cold of a Stubborn Heart

I know, I'm kinda late with this one. Still, the episode is worth reminding of. Hearth's Warming Tail was our mandatory "Scrooge episode" that every self-respecting TV show requires. To me it's some sort of Show's rite of passage and they did an excellent job keeping it entirely in pony lore. Starlight in the role of Snowfall Frost just grabbed me by the heart.
Lately I didn't have a chance to paint any winter scenery, so this was as good an excuse as any. Playing around with lights and shadows is more satisfying when the snow is involved.

How much do you charge? I was thinking either a water rafting trip or a research trip into the Everfree forest.

I remember seeing your works all over Deviantart, but I never realized they were all made by the same person until, oh, a couple minutes ago. Imagine my surprise when I realized all those gorgeous, gorgeous landscapes and paintings were all made by the same artist!

Absolutely incredible, as freaking always. The snow and the clouds just looks so fluffy! The texture of the ice looks so realistic, and just, man. Incredible. And I love that Starlight is Scrooge, hehe! You're so fantastic. It's winter in the Southern Hemisphere, so it works alright if you ask me xD

Thank you! Sadly it didn't get as much attention as I was hoping for. Apparently something I'm actually proud of won't be as popular as something I think I should be improving. I can never tell what people will enjoy more. Oh well... I can still continue doing what I like. I'm just sad for this picture :) Starlight is still the best.
PS. I can't find you in my notes anymore.

I love the lighting and little details you put in this piece, such as the condensating breath, the lighting indoors, the misty atmosphere, all of this is very wintery and beautiful.

Phew, whenever you do an illustration you really knock it out of the ballpark
Late or not this is beautiful!

That background is phenomenal, I love everything in this, as also how you chose the character interactions in the background & the details with the textures!!!!

I agree with JAEneth , while the backgrounds are very stunning in your pieces, the anatomy of the pony seems to be off in this one.
Especially the big head, and noodle like front hooves.
