Svarbeg Island Commission by jjpeabody Svarbeg Island Commission by jjpeabody
This is a commission that I did for :iconfeliane:

Light snow falls over the island of Svarbeg on a dull, gray day. The sea gently laps at the bordering cliffs. A small storm slips in veiling the morning sun and feathers the uninhabited island with another few inches of the snow. The storm smiled as it went undetected.

Most excellent how you managed to get mist into this picture and actually making the islands reflection believable.
The water/sea around it really came out most wonderful and feels real.

A few spots have got a slight thing that could be easily helped though, like on top of the mountain of this island, you have a small stripe there that is quite a bit to dark, and the mist has a slightly too rough edge on the left side of the picture where it hits the sea.
These are ofc. all details and barely matter since only a few people will probably actually notice this.

Apart from those few things, i can't do anything but enjoy the marvelous work you've put down ^^

Incredible gallery over all, but this is a favorite for sure. Well done.

One thing: from a distance, snow looks like really fluffy clouds, as opposed to being able to see the reflections of light on individual snow flakes in a low visibility environment.

Great piece, I am totally happy !! The cold and silent atmosphere is very well done :la: Thank you again for this wonderful vision of Svarbeg :rose:
In fact, this island has some inhabitants who want to live in peace, but they do not live on the coasts ^^
