Silent Night by Gejda Silent Night by Gejda
A very quick manip to wish you guys Wesołych Świąt, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, God Jul, Joyeux Noel!

Have a lot of fun, eat lots of awesome food, get some amazing gifts and spend some quality time with family, hopefully without killing each other in the process. ;)

Beautiful! I love the way you transformed the original stock images into this piece - it looks almost painted and has a kind of vintage feel with the grain and blur vignette. The lighting on the dogs fur makes it feel like part of the piece, and the white glint on its head looks like a glowing eye. Very spooky and magical. 

I saw that you were looking for some critique on this, and it also sounds like it was a very quick manip, so I'll skip the nitpicking and focus instead on overall composition. That's the big thing that, if I had to pick something to change, would would be composition. The different elements are so spread out across the canvas that the eye doesn't quite know what to focus on (also, I totally missed the owl until I was clicking through the original stock as saw it: 'Wait, there's a snowy owl in this piece?").

I wonder what this piece would look like if the dog and the girl were on the left side of the picture together. Then the curve of the eve viewing the piece would start at the bottom and then go up to the mountain, and then follow the aurora in a line that goes from owl to moon. (Aside: Is the piece too tall? Maybe...when I scroll up and stop right above the moon, I almost like that look more than the original...)

All in all, you have a gorgeous, magical style. Definitely keep doing what you're doing, because it's such a lovely thing to see.

Thank you so much for such a detailed comment! I'm always looking for critique, so it's awesome to actually get one. :D I really like what you wrote about leading the eye in this piece - I think you're right, it definitely might look better that way. Thank you once again! :blowkiss: :D
