My entry for the cgempire challenge.

Some winter scouts from a winter land, they are a rogue-like race that lives in the harsh winter, they have perfect vision through the heavy snow and can see see threats easily. The mammoth are also unique type of mammoth that aid the snow race.

No specific ref used.

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 1/27/2007 16:20
Thanks for providing the WIP!

I must say you did a great job with the composition as well bringing attention to depth by going the atmospheric route. Truly beautiful indeed.

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/21/2007 03:01
Thanks ens and dra_chan :D

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 1/21/2007 02:22
your good, but you knew that.  i love the effects you use to add so much depth

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) @ 1/7/2007 12:35
Best mamuts ever!

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/4/2007 12:39
big brother: Yes, you are right, it also bends a little at places, I just went with misshaped as opposed to perfect handle, it is also supposed to angle forward slightly, i hope it doesn't look too bad :D The leader eye color is also in the mammoth eyes. I did use a few colors too many, haha, i was aiming for 32.

2dgamers: Haha, I should work on my games more

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/4/2007 11:47

Didn't notice it at first, but the spear closest to us seems to vary in thickness. I feel ashamed to even bring up this niggle. :)

Are the leader's eyes a unique color?

2dgamers (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/4/2007 08:32
buloght, now I understand why you can't make a game... you're too busy making these wonderful masterpieces!!! If game design cramps your style in any way, I'd say forget the games and keep making these wonderful images. Great job, as always.

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/4/2007 08:11
Thanks for kind comments :)

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/4/2007 07:11

Fantastic! Really clean and crisp and it sets a great mood.

Have a 'fav' on me!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 1/3/2007 14:07
Sheer visual wonderment.

trandon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/3/2007 04:39
this pice is awsome

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/2/2007 23:37
Oh this is lovely. I like your style a lot, and this piece has its own mood. Rock on!

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/2/2007 05:53
Lovely work on this buloght. In my opinion this one creates the best sense of depth of all of your scenes. I really dig the mix of grey/blue, the snow in the foreground and the blue outlines on the mammoths in the background. The simplified trees are also very effective. Great stuff mate.

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/2/2007 03:26
Sorry for double post.

Mrmo tarius: thanks!

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/2/2007 03:25
big brother: Thank you. And for all your advice over the last year.
darth: thanks darth :)
ZoSo: Thanks
horcy: Thanks!
ElectroNico: Thanks!
jalonso: Thanks haha, I don't usually start with highlights, but I got stuck with the fur trying to fo from shadow, I needed to know where the final fur/snow highlights/light would be.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/2/2007 00:21
Great pixel, duh. That WIP was a true visual delight.
I found it most interesting that you too begin shading with highlights.

ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/2/2007 00:13
Greaaaaaaat Work !!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 1/1/2007 18:08
Amazing. And the WIP picture can teach many a thing :)

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/1/2007 14:29
