Cold Winter by Ashwings Cold Winter by Ashwings
uuugh x__o so many things went wrong with this one, I'm not even going to explain XD Just another one of my plentiful sketches that I had on the go during school, I colored, it and uploaded it, and blah.

Tis Thunah again, where is Hawl? I dunno. Working on the 'vintage coloring theme thing. Wee!

Thunah is a little crazy, and thats why she's running around outside in shorts and stuff in winter.

Okayokayokay. YES I know I used 'warm' colors on this, I am not blind :XD: I wanted to break away from the greys, blues and all around 'cool' colors that people traditionally associate with winter, because when it's winter its not always dreary and blue outside! Especially during a sunset, which its currently doing in the image right now. I named it 'cold winter' specifically for the contrast against the warm hues and yeah.
/end rant!

Thunah has purdy hair.

It's a beautiful picture, i like Thunah's position on top of the post. all curled together but still looking to the sky. Nice work.

what would have swayed me about the title and the image is that she's in summer type clothing..

Just in comment to those people who don't it's 'wintery' enough, I think the colours are absolutely fine. It especially reminds me of those crazy evenings where it just never seems to get dark because it's so white outside. If you really wanted to do anything else to it, all I'd suggest would be to give a bit of a hint that it's actually winter, perhaps a bit of snow on the top of that wooden pole where she's sitting. Or perhaps take out the pencil linework in her breath and emphasize the white a bit more? Otherwise it's very cute.

I really like this :) And I like the colors especially, and even her clothes... They actually make me think of winter for some retarded reason >_<;; Beh, well, probably cuz it usually barely even 'cool' in the winter... 85F degrees over Christmas last year! Anyway, really like this, and I can't pick out anything wrong that can't be passed off as style or 'establishing the feel of the picture' :3

very very good, except for that If a natural person was sitting on the pole they'd probably curl their toes around the edge.
that's all I have to say.
other than that, great job, and beautiful skin tone

it's not the colors that confused me... but where i come from- a cold winter means about three sweaters piled up ontop each other- and the a snow suit on top of that- with many extra socks. this girl is wearing shorts and a no sleeves!

besides the confusion- i love it! it is very pretty and well done! :clap:
