Winter is coming by JonathanDufresne Winter is coming by JonathanDufresne

Did a marathon of game of thrones for the past 3 days... watched the season 2 and beginning of season 3 in one go hahaha. What a great show! Anyway got inspired and decided to paint a little castle far in the North. Brace yourself, winter is coming (or not... today summer is taking his rightful place here in Montreal :) finally!)

I love this concept. Especially view angle is awsome. Color balance and contrast is very good. I made a snowy scene too. Making snow is really hard and you did this very well. Maybe as a tip you can check more snow referance about snow shine but as i said this really enough now. Composition balance qualified maybe you can use more darker color at between two buildings and maybe you can use some blur effect at background. But all my tips are just affiliation. By the way english isnt my firsdt language sorry for missunderstanding. Excellent job, keep it up!^^

This reminds me immensely of a particular part in this book: Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill. Absolutely love this book and this painting!

Everything about this piece is beautiful. Backdrop, the snow, the feeling of a lonesome and isolated castle and the simple but majestic architecture. Plus nice use of light and shadow.

Given the title, I would say the Stark's "castle" from Game of Thrones.
