Well, they are all colored the closest to what snow looks like so that is done well. The two that are closest to what snow "looks" like are the first and third one. The third one looks like it belongs in an animated CGI film. It looks real but you know it is not. It is the closest to how real snow should look like. The first one looks like more out of a Disney film. The texture of it makes it seem more like it is sand instead of snow. The second one looks more like you had fun with a brush on paint. Just, no. All in all, for practice, tis very good. Keep up the good work!!
first off i would like to say the top one is just beautiful! i personally think that it has no problems.
for the middle one, it looks a little off. almost over exaggerated. unlike the first one it looks like it would be in a day scene, i dont know if it would help but adding some yellows and pink would be a nice touch.
for the bottom one its almost to flat. maybe thats what you were going for though. but to me it just looks to much like water brush strokes. i like how you put the little snow clumps around the paw print, it really makes a nice touch to the scene clip C: though maybe the paw print could be shadowed a little more to show that the animal sank in
over all though these look lovely and looking at them helped me think about how im going to draw snow. so thank you for the lovely art<3
p.s. i never know what to rate things so i gave you all 5 stars~
A lot of people are saying the middle one doesn't look as good as the first and third ones, but I think that snow doesn't have to be perfectly flat and smooth. If you've ever played in the snow, it bunches up and flattens and makes ruts if the snow is very deep. Not many artists tend to paint snow like that, but it has the potential to make the painting look more interesting. The problem here is that the second one is pretty chaotic, and not very planned out. I can't tell where something has walked or jumped, or if the snow is just being laid out fresh on top of vegetation or rocks.
So what I'm saying is, don't ditch the idea entirely. Just work on it and maybe study some ruined snow if possible. xD here's some tracks in deep snow for quick reference. [link]
