Did you mange to take a photo?

I took several reference photos so I could really study the light effects on these

I can just see you now ...

... squinting at this tiny picture on the screen as a reference!


I think one of the key things in painting icicles is getting the background colouring right - neither too dark or too light - because the ice shows up because of it's edges and they are only there from the light/shadow around it ... not sure that makes sense. I tried to draw some more and didn't get as good an outcome because the background didn't seem to work as well ...

Thank you

I must admit this is one of my drawings I am happiest with ... I learned alot about drawing hard, shiny, clear surfaces

Icey

the ice looks so real Wungu! It's clear but not clear as ice is. This is just great. It cannot be less than 5 stars


You smell like muffins ;]

Looks so realistic.

First snow. Now ice. They're both great. It looks so beautiful hanging like that. But I have the feeling that I want to reach for it and make it my ice sword or at least taste it. Tongue

Thank you both so much

I am really touched by your warm comments ... another happy accident though - I erased much of the colour I had blended in with a very soft eraser to get that transparent feel ...
