Flippin' gorgeous! I love the colours you have used, nice to see some "untraditional" Holiday colours. Still very in tune with the season though. Beautiful!

Thanks everyone!

Imagician: Thanks! I see what you mean. I'll try my best next time to give objects more shape definition (better shadowing and highlights perhaps?). I was hoping the tapered ends of the ribbon would give it a more dynamic feel. Thanks for pointing it out, it'll keep it this in mind for the future.

Afflict: The pieces of ice are actually floating about in the sky.  Sorry it wasn't too clear in the pic.

I Like the piece a lot! My only concern is where are the big pieces of ice falling from.

Regardless its a fav!

user
Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/21/2007 06:05
Honestly the BEST piece I've seen in a long time

user
Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/21/2007 05:59
Great style, especially the use of the few shading steps. Just some (really minor and humble :) criticism:
  • It could look a little bit more plastic, especially the bole. It could look a little more cylindrical, instead it looks a little flat. Same goes for crown and icy rock, but here it's less eye-catching due to it's geometrical nature.
  • The ribbon is being "tapered" at the sides of the crown. I don't really like it, I think it should look different. It actually should be a bit more "bold", both in a physical as well as in an artistic meaning. But that's up to you of course :)
