i really want to know the way you made the effect (white color).
I can feel that It shows some misterious feeling.

It is done by rubbing a candle to the paper before painting. :)

Magical! I love the contrast between the warm colors of the character and the cold environment. It gives a feeling of friendship all by itself.

They seem to be the very origin of snow suffering from it themselves.

it's really wonderful how you were able to include warm colors in the painting, yet still give the viewer an impression of cold.

i really admire your painting! :)

I adore the "snowy" effect. As many others already have asked; how did you make it?
The whole is magical. Feels like a fairytale.

Snow is done by rubbing a candle on to the paper before colorwash.

Amazing work! The cold outside, the warmth on the heart. That's what I read from it! The red contrasts really nicely with the whites and blues. Amazing and inspiring =)
