Kuura by MinnaSundberg Kuura by MinnaSundberg
I've been attempting to draw the arriwal of early winter as some kind of evil deer/moose creature over the span of the last two months now, and the number of started paintings amount to five (not counting this finished one). Ilways managed to work on each idea for a few days, then lost all inspiration, scrapped the piece and started on the next one. Extremely frustrating, especially when I don't have that much time over for personal artwork... : P

There are three layers here: one with the snowy backround on the bottom, second one with the autumn version painted on and finally one black one out from which I've carved the deers by using an eraser. At the beginning there was also one layer with a sketch for the deers.

"Kuura" simply means "frost".

Hooooooly hell, taas näitä kuvia että vois tukehtua pullaansa. Aivan siis huhhhuuuuh. Tämän voisi viskata seinälle ja tuijottaa sitä lopun elämäänsä.

Äläs nyt pullaan tukehdu, kuuluu mennä siitä toisesta torvesta alas. Sitä paitsi tukehtuminen saattaa johtaa kuolemaan, öhörr.

(Eli kiituksia)

Harhar, niihän siinä saattaa pahimmassa tapauksessa käydä. Vaan olipa kuule komiata löytää sinun töitäs ekkaa kertaa neljään vuoteen ja huomata jälleen että nainen, sinä olet edelleen jäätävän hyvä näissä hommissa. :D

Notta jatkaha sammaan malliin. :))

The simplicity of how you layered this is... somehow inspiring. O: I love how you worked on the lineart in an uncommon method - that is, drawing with the eraser. And you went through so many renditions. Do like it~ > w<;;

I love this!
It's almost like two works of art in one.
It sort of reminds me of the pixar short night and day but only though technique =D.
I love how the two seasonal creatures interlace with each other and the detail gone in to both elements of the painting,a beautiful piece!
