Winter Depression by Dahtamnay Winter Depression by Dahtamnay
After the large poster painting, I needed to do something I could finish quickly. This took no more than a few hours, mostly because I left out a lot of unnecessary detail in the background. The snow and trees are just a lot of quick and dirty strokes, but they look convincing enough. I really like the window and how it features a subtle reflection of the background. As I often do with these quick pieces, all was painted on a single layer.

I had done enough colourful things lately, so with this piece I went with a more austere feel. Also Twilight hadn't been the subject of my art for some time, so she was overdue.

Created with Gimp and Wacom Bamboo tablet.

what software did you use for this
Dahtamnay Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Like it sais in the description, it's all done with Gimp. In fact, I didn't even make a pencil sketch, but started right away with the digital drawing.
