Looking good, oaktree.
I think a bit more light around the horizon would be nice, both to brighten the sun and bleed some warm colours into the snow. But I like the dominant figure in the foreground. It adds to the depth and sense of scale in the landscape and it's the kind of thing my picture could do with. Among other things. :whistle:



It doesn't look that different really. I've just been trying to solidify those edges a bit more to give it a bit of definition. I did also experiment by darkening the pic and adding some spot lighting effects but I think more needs to be done elsewhere before I commit to that.

Both looking good.
Those are some nice edges now Val and I like the twilight feel in yours Oak. Good stuff!

No smudge tool was harmed in the making of this image.

Valence looking good I just noticed your set of slingers guiding the ice block. Thanks for the idea with lightening the sky which will allow me to add some colours into the ice sheet. I will probably go over the top with it, it's a great idea.
Thanks for your comments Atto much appreciated I will try to keep the twilight feel but add some more dramatic colour to the sky and ice.
I have given the lead character a face instead of the mask hope it works.

I like the change to the positions of the foreground figures. The previous versions were a little confusing in that area. I think a bit more shading/texture in the clothing to break up the flat colours would help further to separate the different depths and distances.
If there's time of course. I'm struggling to fit mine in too!

Thanks for the feedback Valence. It needs to improve a lot before I post it again at the moment I do not like it at all I'm only here making up the numbers.
