    a bit rough, but you have mostly all the elements down..
    I have no idea what blowing snow looks like, so I couldnt say if that is realistic or not.

    hey mtom! I think that looks great - although the colors seem too saturated...the lighting is awesome!

    Wassap Matt. Sorry I haven't been around DSG, I had to reformat my comp this weekend and haven't loaded IRC back up yet.


    Did some noodling on your pic. Nothing special or finished but I thought you might find it helpful:

    The three things I was thinking about were pushing the faces which ...er... faced away from the light entirely into shadow, modifying the ridges on the left mountain a bit to more conform to it's over shape, and introducing some oranges and purples to the palette.

    Normally I wouldn't post such a craptacular PO, but what the hell, right?

    I really like the wind-swept snow on the top of the peaks in the first rendition. I think you should definitely keep that in there. It adds a sense of realism, and I could almost hear the wind blowing up there.

    It almost feels like to different styles in one piece. The top of the mountains are a bit more crisp in their shadowing and detail, while under them the style changes to a more abstract variation.

    Just some random thoughts really. I know you are just practicing so take them for what they are.
