So Cold by Magica-28 So Cold by Magica-28
This was slightly experimental since I tried some new techniques. And it took awhile to come up with a color scheme that I was happy with. D:

To put it simply, this piece is very nice. The colors of each stock match wonderfully. The blending of the sky and trees looks perfect. :heart:

I have just a few suggestions to make this even more awesome.

The first is to lower the brightness of the snow bank on the right; given the lighting, it looks a bit too bright. It should also be a bit more blue to match the one on the left.

The second suggestion is to use a soft eraser with mid to low opacity and go along the edges of the snow banks. This way there is a cleaner, more natural transition between the snow and water.

The last is to brighten up the trees a little, especially on their left sides. With the brightness of the light in that section of the manip, there should be some reflection of it on the trees.

They are very minor suggestions, and even without them, this piece is captivating. My favorite part is the sky; it's so well done. :love:

Great work here. :tighthug:

The only thing I don't get is the fact that the stars appear on the clouds. The rest of the image looks pretty.

its really pretty but i think the logo kinda ruined the scenery. if your gonna add a logo, i wouldve made it a little transparent and not in the center of the focus. the stream is leading our eye towards the middle, and since the logo is really big, it just seems to ruin the magic you have going on.

sorry to be blunt, its really pretty and the stars/sky. looks good. thanks for using my brushes, you do me a great honor by using them.
