"The Frostiron Mountains delight in laboring travelers with weeks of near impassable crags and cliffs; but for the Frostiron Couriers whose feet play upon the ancient moored structures throughout you may expect only two days wasted, albeit a possibly abrupt passage into the afterlife."

The image is fantastic by itself, and the falling snow is the perfect finishing touch. Fabulous.

:] Thank you. I'm going to try to push the paintings themselves a little bit further before I dabble with motion, but it's always nice to play around with it every so often.

How have you done this snow? Could u share your secret with me :P? Or is this some ancient forbidden technique?
Reply
:iconsprias:
Sprias Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013  Student Digital Artist
It is an ancient, forbidden technique mastered by the ancient Manchurian peoples, with an older form of AfterEffects, but I could share it with you, yes.

Send me a note :>

The concept of crossing enormous steel cables ( ? ) across a mountain range is just fantastic. If this was your original idea, I applaud you.

Isn't his work awesome? And yeah, the inspiration came from a mix of him, Jaime Jones, some small sketch from Craig Mullins and a bunch of other things. I suppose if it's instantly recognizable I should try to reel back a bit, though.

Gorgeous, I was definitely not expecting an animation and couldn't stop staring at the snow for a while.
The snow only ads to a very well designed illustration.

Great work, I love the scenery in this painting. The world looks interesting, and the tower has a great design in my opinion. I'm quite curious what goes on in there and what it is build for. Everything in the painting points towards it, so it must have some importance :P
To be honest though, I'm personally not a big fan of the animated snow in this painting. It's a nice gimmick, but makes the rest of the scene seem more static than it would otherwise. Anyway, I really like it, thank you for creating this! :+fav:

Sprias Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
:> I know what you mean, I had a rough time deciding between the animated snow and just painting it in since the contrast between what moves and what doesn't move makes the snow emphatic. I'm working on animating drapery and light shafts to complement it, so either with this piece or the next there'll be some changes to come :]

I see what you mean. I think I might throw a splash of light onto the foreground to help break up the value pattern and also model out the forms in front a bit more so nothing's ambiguous.
