Sound of Snow by colrath Sound of Snow by colrath
I kinda like how this turned out even though it's quite simple, I was actually going for something a lot more complex but everything I tried seemed just too much for this image.

Anyways, this was inspired while listening to Sound of Snow by the great band called ShamRain. You can check out the song at: [link]


NOTE: REMEMBER TO CHECK THE ORIGINAL IMAGE TO SEE WHAT'S DONE!

Basically this is an example what kind of impact proper texture blending can have on just a normal photo.

you made that image your own, really love the mood. I'd suggest cutting the eyes a with little shadows, they pop a little too much for this image... more like the right side

Thank you very much! :D

Since this piece is quite old already so I won't be making any corrections to it anymore but I'll try to keep you suggestion in mind for future works. Thanks! :)

The filters on this photo remind me of the main heroes in the Fable video games, but anyway... I like the lines you added to the face to make the subject look older, its a nice touch and also makes him seem more powerful? I don't know the word to describe it. I think the eyes are a bit too bright of a blue, but thats just my own personal preference. The colors go nicely together since there is not too much contrast. This photo looks nothing like it used to, in a very good way
