Descent by vtas Descent by vtas
:iconconchordia:
Edit: Added more snow & sharpened. Sorry for the late! Battle #2: Armand & Vivian Masters VS. Zen Muller & Lucian in the alps~! points to blanc?

This is my first time painting snowy mountains/alps. @_@ I'm not completely satisfied but I think they turned out all right. Still got a lot to learn though. I used a photo reference but made up every peak/valley/shadow myself. I've always wanted to be able to do environments, so here's a try! Also used a few custom brushes from ~Blinck! Do check out his amazing environment speeds.

Thank you those who came for watching and keeping me company on LS >u<

The forsaken warrior was punished to wait alone for his hour to come, to look from above the snowy mountain , but he was far from defeated. When the promised time was upon him , the hermit would come down from the icy peak and engage in the storms of battle once again.Dreaming to reclaim his rightful place in the world and to have his vengeance for what was once taken away from him , no force that existed would stop his conquest.The flames of chaos would cover the lands as the soil we now step on. And what once was , shall never again be.


Great painting

I just can't describe how fantastic your artwork is, really. You did such an amazing breathtaking job with the background and the coldness feels so real. Your shading is phenomenal and I just adore how it all comes together. Magnificent, truly!

Aesomely beautiful work. I would say the only thing that stands out to me is the hand, it seems almost still cel-shaded and not as detailed as the rest of the picture. That background <3
