Falling Snow by FugueState Falling Snow by FugueState
For :iconpeahopeless:'s story, Listen.

"Tiny ice crystals, clicking together in a faint, background whisper. If you listened, you could hear it. Muffled and soft. Soothing. Constant. ... ... It was almost -- *almost* -- like the sound of Evey's breathing in the middle of a deep, dark night."

I believe this is my favorite so far in your gallery! :w00t: I don't know why, it's just simple, but so effective.

Oh man, poor V.

Having seen the sketches, the first thing I end up noticing is the effect the snow now has on the trees. And I see you got the effect of motion in to the flakes, by what looks like the little elongation of some against his blackness. Also the lighting on his entire body, head to toe, to create definition, when really he's just so much blackness. And I still can't figure out how you make fabric 'puddle' like that.

Your stones are amazing as always, and the crop, again, I think was brilliant. He's no longer boxed in. Now I look back at the rest of the arch, and he was walled in. It's amazing the difference (I'm actually learning more artistry here). He's more out there now, which not only looks better on him, but fits better too. Now he's more 'pushed out of his element'. I can't believe the effects of a cut. It really is even more dramatic than with the 'invitation' picture.

Yep - thank gawd for Photoshop tutorials! (which reminds me, I need to add credit for that...)

>and the crop, again, I think was brilliant.

Thank you - I agree that having the entire arch showing created a "walled-in" effect, which I didn't want.

>Now he's more 'pushed out of his element'.

Agreed. Although, as you said, he's at least not "walled in" with the crop being where it is.

>Oh man, poor V.

Yeah... but he's about to get a letter. :D
