Many thanks for the nice words. Your own work is so delicate that it makes me appreciate your nice comment even more.
Everlasting beauty; the call of the wild; exquisite work Pierre
Thanks a lot. I recommend all readers to rush to Kundry's gallery and discover the marvels there. And thanks for the note in French.
I love it! I can hear the woosh sound of the blizzard, it's great.
Thank you. I aimed for an atmospheric piece with this one. With time, I feel I see its flaws more and more, but if you feel that it still conveys a particular atmosphere, then maybe the piece still stands in spite of its shortcuts. Thank you for the nice feedback.
Great image! I like the feelig in it! the sensation of transportation!
Thank you Mia. It took me ages to do that fur ! But then, I am very slow.
I love the size of the girl in relation to the wolf and the detail in the fur. So cool!
I received much advice for this one from you Kay, so it owes much to you. And the snow owes much to Oleg too, who showed me the way when i was stuck.
Oh you worked out the snow so well. What a beautiful work.
Many thanks Rita. Yes, first I was worried too about the girl. But those elves have very weird metabolisms it seems, they can run barefeet in the snow and still remain pink and fresh. This little one has been here for over a month now, and she still does not seem to mind the cold.
I didn't saw it yet!!!!!!
I love the theme, and execution, but i'm worry about one thing... the little girl will be frozen (I love expecially her hair, and the wolf's fur turned out very "furish" too!)
Thank you Sarah. Quite a different atmosphere than your space paintings, isn't it ? It is nice to share impressions with artists with so diverse styles and inspirationnal sources. This is what is so great about this place.
Very very pretty, and a nice sense of atmosphere!
A million thanks for this comment James. Being a great admirer of your pencil pieces, it means a lot to me.
This is an amazing piece, Pierre, your skill with pencils is truly amazing, I love the snow effect (very difficult to achieve) such a beautiful ambience!
Thanks a lot Simon. Oleg's tips were much helpful as regards snow. And ... just in case you come by Paris, you can have a beer too !
Rita beat me to it, so no beer for me. This is a great piece, Pierre, and I like the way you've done the snow - gusts of flakes instead of a uniform set of dots, like it's often portrayed. Excellent, keep it up!
A million thanks Kay. I needed your help and others' too to walk that extra mile.
Ah I like the snow...nice movement to a beautiful piece. Taking a risk and going the extra mile always pays off. Even if something doesn't work you learn something. But you did the snow perfect my friend. Just the touch it needed.
Thanks a lot too Uwe. Without the little push in the back from the WIP, I would never have dared to add snow. Although it was my aim from the start, when everything was done I suddenly felt afraid to ruin it all by adding snowflakes everywhere. So it was good that I got encouraged into going that way all the same. That is also what I like in traditionnal media: you get a real thrill with every step you take. And sometimes you take just one step too much and the piece is ruined. Hopefully it was not the case with this one. See you Uwe.
Thanks a lot Cris. I am really glad you liked it and spent a little while leaving this nice comment.
Hi Pierre, I loved this since I saw it the first time in the WIP forum, glad you didnt change too much as it was a good one from beginning on. Though I love the snow effect you added as it gives some great movement to the piece, good contrast to the static pose of the wolf and girl. A very atmospheric piece Pierre, great job!
Great imagery! You can just imagine all the howling....the girl, the wolf, the wind...*thumbs up!*
Yes Rita, the free beer is for you ! Do not worry, they sell plenty of german beers in Paris. Thanks for commenting.
LEG LEG - ha ha ha - the free beer is for me!
Like I said - its wonderful! And I am glad you didnt crop!
