Brrr - this looks very cold! I especially like the way you have created the reflections of color and light across the snow covered landscape. The starry sky looks great too :)

The first thing that caught my mind was all the lovely hues of blue in this picture. I also like the way the trees look like sculptured ice, and the fine shine from the moon on the snow. The way you have painted this is realistic, but at the same time it has elements of abstraction. I don't think I would ever get tired of looking at this picture because of the magical atmosphere.

The brushwork is smooth and also accurate, and it is easy to see that you have paid very good attention to details. You have also used high lights in a very effective way.

The format and framing is perfect, and I think it is a very good balance in the composition. I think this is a lovely and well done digital painting, and I wish you luck with the contest.

Comment from Donna Ruiz


A really lovely entry for this contest. You created so many different elements starting with the trees and then the snow path leading the eye directly towards the moon. The colors are lovely to create a truly "cold" feel to the image. Good luck with the contest.

Comment from Nikki Shull


I love the -almost neon "glow" that is present in the piece. That is certainly my favorite aspect. The left side of the picture is a bit confusing. It takes away from the picture as a whole a tad. Otherwise quite intriguing for digital art. Well done.

    Hi Nikki, I appreciate your review and constructive comments. The left side is supposed to be a tree that is very close to the viewer, with branches iced over. But I can see how that can be difficult to perceive when the rest of the scene is so much clearer. Thank you!

Comment from alaskapat


This is a magical scene, a very well created digital artwork. A beautiful full moon is casting a lovely glow over this wintery forest, I love the trees and how you have arranged them here. To a beautiful color combination of the deep blues and greens with the wintery whites! Well,presented!

It is a cold and icy world you present. It seems frost and snow came suddenly and put all life on hold. The Evergreens seem beneath a translucent ice cover. Even the snow seems to have an ice cover on top. The colors are interesting. The shades of blue emphasize the cold, but in some places the cold light of the moon turns reflects in rainbow hues.
