Wow the usage of blur in this image is really neat >.<

Beautiful sense of drama in this, and the limited color palette just intensifies it. The misty light coming from the right of the canvas makes me want to jump right in to see where it's coming from.

Winter is my favorite season. I wish the woods behind my house were this pretty...

This is surreal, beautiful. Love the landscape.
A lot of your work has a cloaked figure in the background, is there a story behind that?
skraww's avatar
I like to include a cloaked figure to give the feeling that my environments are being seen and explored by someone other than the viewer. It's also incredibly useful for showing scale.
I do have a story in my head for some of the locations (especially in the snowy scenes), but I've yet to put it down in writing, something I should really do at some point!

I did notice that the landscapes feel larger/grander with a person for scale, especially in this one where the figure is very small compared to the rest of the scene. I'd be very curious to read the stories!
Great artwork as always :)

the blurr and angle adds a lot to this image. This is really well done!

Did you consider adding a slight blurr to the vegetation on the right too?

I really love your art, and the style you persuit.
skraww's avatar
Thank you very much!
I did consider blurring the foliage on the right, but I felt that it would possibly be a bit further away and therefore not as blurred as the rest. I also wanted something between the foreground and mid-ground to help the viewer sense the distance between the two. :)

FAB! - I love FG blur and it really works here.
skraww's avatar
Thank you! I'm addicted to adding foreground blur, it'd be in all my paintings but I don't want it to become overused! :P

Very interesting environment. :) I like the falling snow. 
skraww's avatar
Thank you! I do love snowy scenes, as you can probably tell by now =P
