Winterlady by Zardra Winterlady by Zardra
I started painting this last year, on December, when we didn't have any snow in Finland. And I really missed the snowy days.

NOW we have Tons and tons and tons of snow and -20 celsius (-4 fahrenheit) weather here, so I got my wish. :D It actually looks like that here now... except if she was sitting on the ground like that, she would be half hidden under the snow. :P

I used a reference for the background from our "townlake" in my hometown Lahti, Pikkuvesijärvi. The girl: no reference was used.
And I don't know who she is, maybe someone from my story who hasn't shown up yet? You never know, I seem to come up with new characters a lot lately.

***

This painting took almost 3 weeks to finish. I painted it for about 2-4 hours/night, so about 60 hours or so.
It's completely done in Photoshop CS2. I used a lot of special brushes for the background... it was really fun to paint!
And I had extra fun designing the girls clothes. ^_^

As a sidenote: I have this habit when posting new art here, that I try to vary as much as I can, if the last image posted is a female, the next one will be male, if it's fan art, the next one will be original and so on.
Now I browsed trough my few pictures that I have on my computer and: woman, woman, woman... oh dear, this is not good.
I need to draw some men. Inspiration, where are thou. ^^;
