Weekly challenge entry. Studying tomic's style.

Edit > I gave up on trying to make the picture looks snowy without using blues. So here is the "blueish" palette edit.

And here are the variations of this piece (mainly palette changes):  the bottom left is what I initially had

Ah, that red-brownish version looks good (but not icy). The ice here is a bit too blue I think, but it's a very nice scene and it's cool you went 8 colors only.

i like that edit r1k did, looks more snowy nonetheless good job!

Thanks for you edit. It seems like the brown I used on the sky/rocks is a bit too warm for the winter scene...

nice but I agree about the non snowiness, though a palette change could fix that.  Heres an edit I tried to make it a little more snowy without relying on blues too much

Thanks for your comments!

Yeah I wasn't pleased with that "ice". I guess its because of grainy texture and as you mentioned lack of contrast. Made an edit. Lets say, this is snow covered valley :)

"Doesn't look like ice imo" - Yup I agree, I think this could be fixed by incresing the contrast. But anyway, this has a great atmosphere and you did a good job of capturing a Tomic vibe.

Doesn't look like ice imo And your colors make me think to some arid places. Otherwise, this is very nice :)

Great 5/5

Beautiful, great colors!

Maybe a bit too symmetrical: the montains might be a slightly more different shape, size, distance.

Could use a little more contrast too.
