Artwork Description

The girl is Rhianwyn, mischievous mountain spirit, and the guy is Manannan mac Lir, an old Irish sea god who's down on his luck and out of his element. Painting this was a study in anticlimax; I painted Rhianwyn first, and she was an absolute joy and finished in a day. Then I painted Manannan, and he took two or three days and the process was less joyful. Then I spent about a month on the background, and man, was that aggravating. Still, I'm pleased with how it came out.

so i actually started painting the mountains many times, and in one of their incarnations the snow looked rather fluffy. But I wanted the terrain to have a harsher look to make the girl's playfulness more remarkable.

This is a really cute pic! Her hair is really unusual, i like it. For some reason, i wish the snow was a little 'fluffier.' Not that i'm an expert on snow or anything, since i live on the equator, but i think fluffy looking snow looks more playful, like you would want to make snowballs. Anyway, that's just me and my weird opinion. Wink
