I've been working on this on and off for the past few days... I was having trouble with the background since I can't do snow to save my life, so I ended up giving up on trying to make it look good and just winged it... I think it came out okay.

Everything was done by me except for that random tree in the background; I used a pre-made brush for that. Everything else though was made by scratch. ^^

Hope you like it!! Just a small winter-y picture for you all. Was going to do a speedpaint with this but due to the fact that I was experimenting with the background for like two hours, I decided against it.

Enjoy! <33

This is beautiful, Kriss! The snow looks fantastic. I know for a fact there are plenty of tutorials if you ever care to look around but this is beautiful.

For some tips on snow:
- For the snow on the ground, make the base white, and then make a new layer with a clipping group to the base, and take different shades of grey like you already did here it looks like and sketch them in with an air brush or low density brush according to your light source. Then, take either the blur tool in SAI or the smudge tool in photoshop and blend/smudge the shades together. It makes it look more natural, and use a different layer for your snow in the back than your snow in the foreground.
- For the falling snow, after making your dots you can also blur them to again, make the snow look natural.

You did a pretty good job here, it just needs some adjustments to make a softer looking background (: I love Krissi! She looks adorable and your shading has improved a lot!

Thank you so much! Snow is one of the things I can't really do at all, and sadly there aren't many tutorials out there for snow on the ground! Usually all the tutorials I find are for falling snow, which is pretty easy in comparison.

I'll practice snow and use your technique in the future! Thank you so much for the critique! <33

You're welcome!! c:
Oh yeah it can be sorta tricky to make look more realistic! I noticed that too! Kinda disappointing.. There aren't many tutorials for backgrounds and shading in general
Yes, very true! snow falling is basically just dots haha

Okay, glad I could help out! Can't wait to see what it looks like c:
You're so welcome <33 I wish more people would critique my backgrounds!
