I've never seen snow so Winter landscapes have always seemed magical and otherworldly to me. Loved the brief for this weeks challenge and asked a Canadian friend for a photo to use as a reference. Ran out of time a bit in the end and there's a lot of places that could use some work but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for the advice! Wanted to improve it a bit more but was a busy week for me and ran out of time in the end.

I am from Alberta and I can attest to this scenes accuracy! Strong pixelling, but a bit too busy for my tastes. A more colourful palette could really make this pop. Maybe the addition of some anti aliasing on the bold outlines to make everything blend more harmoniously. Congrats on third place!

I hate the snow. But I like your image!

Cool. Reminds me of some old DOS games.
