On a cold winter's night, the Angel of the Snows lends her warmth to the creatures of the forest.

< p>I felt like noodling around with colored pencils, working with something a bit more subtle than the usual more garish art markers.

Nice work with the colored pencils. I could never figure out the subtlties of colored pencils. I end up working in pastel. It goes on thicker and allows a better build up of color for me.

Very cool. I really like the deer. The wolf and her wings are awesome too. *peace*

I like this pic! I agree if the wolf was snarling it would be wrinkled at the top of it's muzzle...

Another great pic 2. I would have liked to see the sky darker though...right now (on my horrid laptop monitor), it's really hard for me to distinguish between the sky and the foreground.

Now this is impressive. All your animals and your person are posed realistically, and the harmony in the pic is wonderful. It just feels peaceful. Great!

Is she trying to swat that bird and then eat it ? ... Her face looks odd to me ... maybe she’s sad because she doesn’t want to kill the bird, but she’s too hungry, and if she eats anything but birds, her wings will fall off ? ...

2 ... anyways, nice picture, However ... it looks somehow .. not peaceful .. but .. dead. She either has no emotion, or is awfully sad for having so many beautiful creatures around her, they gonna eat her ? 19P ... I guess maybe angels don’t have emotion ? .. <shrugs> ...

Still a very nice picture ... wish i could draw this good. I like the deer. And i like how the rabbit is getting ready to sniff that owl, until that angel goes away, then that owl is gonna eat that rabbit ya know. 2

It’s interesting how the wings look kinda like mountains, but the picture wouldn’t suffer at all if you were to draw some real mountains instead of the wings ... where’s the background ? .. you forgot to draw it. 2 .. it’s a nice picture though .. wanna make some graphics for a game i’m making ? .. lol ... no really .. i could use some female type characters, for a medieval style beat-em-up style game that i’m gonna make. o.o
