first try at color

Yet another revision. Still trying to make it feel more atmospheric. Working?

Okay, here's a quick revision... Better?
Okay so here's a draft of the first official Monomyth page in color. I'm not completely sure how I feel about it, but what do you guys think?


  1. I like it. It really bugs me when snow is done poorly, but how you handled it here. I only wish there was more color. The white snow gives a great opportunity to play with color. This is totally just my opinion, but I think it could be really cool with an orange sunset with blue/purple reflected light. Kind of compliment the blue in your character. Though he does stand out well because of the lack of color. I think it could work as is, I just wish for a little more color somewhere, even super subtly.

  2. I agree with Shara. More color. Snow can have some beautiful blue/purple shadows. Also, push atmospheric perspective some. The bridge/pagoda thing shouldn't be so vibrant.. and the temple should be almost hidden in the fog/snow. I think you should make a snowflake brush and have fun putting snow in and maybe indicate some movement of wind. Looking good so far!

  3. Ooooh! I like it much better! I really like the snow and how you added color. Good call on giving your character a shadow, too.

  4. I think the revision is better, but I would recommend more snow texture, another layer of snowy mountains behind that lonely one in the middle, and I liked the lighter sky in the first draft. I think it makes it feel chillier. There you go. :) Good luck.
