Winterbliss Reboot by GlacialNecrothyn Winterbliss Reboot by GlacialNecrothyn
This is a completely remade version of this picture here:

[link]


I felt the need to revisit this picture for a couple reasons. The main one I had I loved the concept but the first version I had provided the link to in the top of the description was in my old artwork done actually a year ago (which is surprising now actually seeing my improvements.)

The other reasoning behind this picture was I needed to treat myself out to a beautiful picture to get as a personal customized item (a mousepad in this case) and wanted something more up-to-date, I wanted Winterbliss but it was too old for my liking so low and behold, I present a completely revamped and new fresh version of it I can continue to be proud of. Also lastly, this is technically a gift in a sense for my gal since I wanted to include her like the original picture.

So all in all this picture was simply a just for fun picture and to try and brush en up on my work, I'm not into drawing seriously I only do it for fun, but I try to keep the rust away.

This was done on Photoshop CS5 and the estimated time was about 20-25 hours, as I did not clock this piece.

Recommenting since I made this new account to abandon my old one.

I know I said this before but this picture is seriously your best one by far! No jokes! And I am happy that you included my character in your picture again babe! It looks much more sharper and detailed and anything else you've done, and the link you provide and in comparison to the rest of your stuff is stunning, and mind blowing.

You've done what most can't, and that vastly improve in such a short time span. I'm speechless at this point, fucking amazing, I seriously look forward to seeing more from you babe! :heart::heart::heart: MWAH! Thank you for the picture again sweetie!

Re-visitations really show how far one has come as an artist. You, my friend, have come very far since the first rendition of this piece.

Your anatomy is supernatural! By that, I mean it's amazing. Even from just your other pieces this picture reflects it the best. The faces here are very well done and I like the snarls. I am very fond of the way you draw eyes, possibly because they're blank, but still are very expressive and portray the feeling of a character more. Eyes are the window to the soul they say.

The clothing wrinkles to me, are very realistic and the flow of motion on both characters in their posing is beautifully executed and retains a sense of life where as the background is barren and lifeless in contrast. The rocky mountains and the snow give a good immediate sense of isolation and a good cold chill that you can almost imagine surrounding you. But you and Avanne have immunity to that and you are going to exterminate whatever foes lie just out of view with your amazing looking bone magic skills.

The foes stand no chance.

Keep up the mind blowing work! I can't wait for more!

Fucking mind blowing. Dude you seriously need to make more shit from the soul and heart like this one because seriously, it's your best shit. I love the hell out of this and would gladly murder someone to have a picture of myself done in your style!

I love both version, but this one is breath taking. The painting on the characters is really smooth and for a picture like this the background is perfectly suited for them. I really love this picture, it is definitely your best piece as of date. I look forward to seeing more gorgeous pictures from you much like this one. c:

"Hot damn. Your Dynamic posing has honestly really improved. I think the biggest eye-catcher is Avanne. She's down low, arms and a leg extended, and looking really aggressive. I mean, look at how you've got her back arm crooked. She could be throwing the world-shattering spell for all we know and can tell. And then there's you, who's simply doing what you do best: Assert your dominance and confidence over the small fries who dare to stand up to you. The toothy grin, your posture, it screams "And now you're gonna die. And there's nothing you can do about it". And your shading/coloring has improved lots, too. The leather actually looks like it has shine to it. My last little thing here is the depth. The way you blurred the snowflakes makes it actually seem sorta 3-D. Like, the characters are actually surrounded by the snow. It really is an impressive piece. I hope all your other pieces are this good, and even better, in the future."

I think everyone's comment squished into one can describe this picture. Honestly though! What can be said about this masterpiece that hasn't already been said? The anatomy is breath taking, the posing works perfectly with the picture, and the abandoned tundra reflects both characters perfectly, dark characters with a more dark take on a snowy climate.

Dude, just holy shit. If you keep up this kind of improvement you'll be ungodly pro in no time I am sure! Keep it up man, I want to see some more bad ass imagery like this one, and hopefully soon bro!

Damn, nice work on this. Your shading is really eye-catching, and I'm rather envious of how you can do line-less art. I still haven't gotten the hang of that.

One thing I particularly like is the pose. Both these characters have anthro canine legs, and those can be somewhat difficult to get to look right. Here they seem very natural though, so great work on that. :3

Thank you, haha I'm glad my work can be considered "envious" but I just kind of go with the flow with my work, then again I have had some anatomy courses that's helped me get a better grasp on details and how muscle structure/movement works. Glad you dig my pic!

Oh my God!

THIS is so fucking amazing, like what Raven said, your painting skill is utterly blow your old one right of of the water! My favorite thing out of this picture is HOW fucking well you put into details with panting. I mean, EVERY LITTLE details! The hair, fur, horns, and even armors. The background is very well suited for this image.

The remake is fucking amazing.

Your face is really neat. I love the snarl.

Getting to see you do this from start to finish was freakin' amazing. All of that work, all of the time, love, and effort put into it really shine!

I love the poses, the snarls, the ..well..everything!

The new painting process you have blows the old one out of the water and sky high into oblivion!
It's really gorgeous, and this is by far the best piece you've posted up here and ever. The snow is well rendered and the detail in the stone pillars is great too! All in all everything is amazing!

Keep up the fantastic work!
