Warm The Arctic Cold by drcloud Warm The Arctic Cold by drcloud
I feel like I don't really do enough complete pics these days (although the Stick [link] one was kinda recent, and I forgot about that...), so here's another one.

Hurrah for inspiring song lyrics.

Did it in a day, which makes a change for me :D

She's not anyone in particular, although perhaps she should be. She used to have brownish hair, but I liked keeping everything in blues and purples and whites, except her eyes. Fits the title better that way XD

Wow, it really give another point of perspective with the vast artic-glacier in the background. Well... to me it does :roll:

Man, thatīs SO perfect. Just look at her pose, so natural an nicely done, and her hands. Dude, those hands are just awesome. :D

Also, her outfit looks so detailed and real, her coat even seems to be a bit heavy, in contrast with the light scarf-thing.

I loved her warm orange eyes. That makes the image more intense!! :D
:+fav:
Wonderful work!! (As always, you know :XD: )

Thank you :D

(generally I end up hating my hands, so this feels like an accomplishment XD)

"Warm the arctic cold" comes from Dredg - Symbol Song. For some reason those 4 words were all it took X3

You're welcome :D

You should not hate the hands you draw! They are among the best I've seen, and the way you draw them fit so good with you style..

Hmm, never heard of.. But must be a lovely song to inspire this :D

Great work on that composition, it all comes together very well. Her eyes being red are a really striking contrast to the rest of the pic. Fabric looks great, the shading's top notch... very good indeed!

In a day? Well, in any case, this looks great. The warmth in her eyes really speaks for the title, as you've said. Like a sense of innocence in a harsh world. The windy atmosphere on her clothes and hair is perfect too. =)

For some reason I get Rei vibes more than Drizzt vibes, I think it's the hair/eye color :p

I guess she has a slightly frigid personality then huh?

I like it. The grey-blues are really soothing to look at. Not to mention that they make the orange of her eyes right stand out.

A nice day above the Arctic Circle.

Sweet. Great line quality and shading as usual. It gives me Forgotten Realms flashbacks, like she could party with Drizzt somewhere out there on the ice...
