Magical Meeting

Well, this the "In The Winter" challenge at :iconmanipulatethis: Level 2 (I hope that I'm good for this level....)

You can pretty much convey the artwork any way you like, whether it being a magical meeting of 'winter' fairytale characters or the Snow Maiden and the Ice Queen 'bowing' to the Arctic animals, that are endangered in the wild.

The stock that I used:

(Required) Background: [link]

(Required) Ice Queen: [link]

Snow Maiden: [link]

Tiger: [link]

Tiger's crown: [link]

Polar bear: [link]

Polar bear's crown: [link]

Wolf: [link]

Wolf's crown: [link]

Arctic fox: [link]

Fox's tiara: [link]

Snowflake brushes: [link]

Cloud brushes used as snow: [link]

Well, this work isn't the best and it could be improved so critiques and comments are welcome!

EDIT: after reading :iconfantasim:'s critique on this, I got pointed out a flaw of leaving a dark outline that didn't blend in with neither the stock or the background, so I changed it...well at least I tried to change it...

I like your idea and this is a good composition. I especially like the grouping of animals. This is obviously a fantasy scene because all of the animals wear a grown, and you chose a pose of the main model bowing, like she is giving respect to them all.

However, I do see a few minor flaws that all relate to the same problem.

Look at the left side of the little girl, there is a dark outline on the backside of her coat. You need to blend that out into the inside of the coat or into the background so that there is no dark line showing. the same occurs at the feet of the woman, and the fox. Your tiger, bear and coyote looks fine.

These corrections should be easy to do, even on your final image. But if you have been saving, I'd try it first on the previous version.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the tip! (and the critique) Is it possible if I correct it and then put it up here as the final image for the challenge?

Yes, you can make changes to it, but don't add another deviation to your gallery. Go to the original deviation and "Edit" it. That will give you a way to replace the original image without uploading a new one.
