Winter Knights by Catwagons Winter Knights by Catwagons
Oh shi*, I forgot to resubmit this!

I touched it up a lot, due to the fact that back in '06 when I did this thing, I relied very much on the smudge tool and fuzzy brushes for shading. And for some reason, I thought it was a good idea to use snowflake shaped snowflakes for the snow. It looked really cliparty.

Fact of the matter is, that this time around, I didn't. I think the hardest part on this thing was the horse. I used to draw them all the time in like, sixth grade, but my anatomy on them was poor, and still is. ^^;

I should use references more often, cause this one actually turned out pretty amazing, despite the heavy usage of such ^^;. Dual monitoring saves arse! Thanks to my cousin's friend for the photo, and random MSN conversations. Gogo Renaissance fairs + big black horsies. I think the original dude in the photo was a guy?! :o but girls are cooler, neeeeh. :X

So without further adieu, ver. 2! :)

The background is great
The dulled out winter fog in the distance really works
