Wind of change by Zindy Wind of change by Zindy
I finished this one long ago, waited over 2 months to get the courage to paint snow on with tempera instead of drawing it and in the end the result didnít please me at all. Yay for that. Anyway, here he is finished. The model is gorgeous, very handsome and draw-able. I know - I need to draw more males.

The idea of the drawing is obvious I guess: the autumn leaves falling and the white winter taking over.

Lovely reference by :iconlinzstock: [link]

Thanks for looking and appreciate the comments on the WIP:


Created with colour pencils + Lana Sketching paper.
11x8 inches | 29.7x21cm

This is really good, with all the details and nice coloring, the snow is fine and since it's wind of change it would probably be good to add just a few more flakes going towards left and maybe make some of them a bit bigger than others for a dreamy look lol.

But can I ask you why you make more light on the bottom of the picture?

It's because I cropped it. It was originally fading out towards a white border but it didn't look right, that's why :)

I don't see what's wrong with the snow. but I personally don't like the left side of the background that much. and it looks like he's wearing lipstick. It's a good drawing still. :)

I guess I was just so used to you being there along with a few other who kept being there. It's always nice to have something familiar. I wondered if anything happened but I am "glad" it's just that you stopped visiting, if you can put it like that.

i'm not sure i like the painted snow either, but maybe it's just cuz it was mentioned. I agree that the model is very "draw-able" :) I like the leaves blowing in the wind too. Great job :)

I love it! :D I got a tip from another artist that to make snow on your painting you get a tooth brush and with really watery white paint you just flick it on the painting with your thumb and it comes out snow. I think it might be for snow in the distance though I'm not sure, but I think your snow looks fine, really do :D Thought it might help. I'm always amazed how you colour your drawings too it looks soo good lol :love:
