Better than most fantasy in how they're dressed.  But still not adequately warm for winter!  :(

This is my favourite! You did it very well. This paint creates my imagination for Arietta and Roger and only because of this beautiful cover I´ve bought nearly all books from Brokilon(Červenák and Šlechta)..:D

congratz and Good Luck!

I like how there seems to be an aura of light around the two cold, probably worn warriors. The darkness of the chilling blizzard is matched only to their fiery determination, especially to the elven archer (the pointed ears seem to say it). The archer's human companion looks more of calm and undeterred from the situation.

Then there is their clothes. They look appropriate for the situation, although the archer's clothing appears lighter than the crossbowman's. But then I believe that the archer is probably unaccustomed to the climate, and improvised the wear.

Then it leaves me a question. May I ask; is the archer female? The body looks feminine, but the face looks more masculine. At first glance, I thought the archer was purely a male. But a second look proves otherwise.

Anyways, this is brilliant. I love the mood and color of the picture, and the warriors' expression and clothes. Good work. :D

fuu ha tazka otazka, ze ako dlho kreslim. V podstate som kreslil skoro cely zivot, lebo ma to bavilo. Niekedy som v tom mal samozrejme prestavky, ale vzdy to bola vec co som chcel najviac robit. Na compe kreslim tusim tak 5 a pol roka, ale nemam to presne zratene ;)

Ide ti to perfektne. Vidiet ze to robis rad a ze si tomu venoval uz kopu casu :) Neviem ci niekto s mojimi skilmy by mohol raz kreslit nieco vlastne.. no budem sa snazit.
Obdivujem tvoje prace, pretoze su tak nedokonalo dokonale. Myslim tym, ze netreba vela detailov, resp. par detailov na tych spravnych miestach, aby si urobil majstrovske dielo na ktore clovek ziza s otvorenymi ustami :D. Len tak dalej :heart:

Every time I'm looking at your pictures, I silently wonder why there are so many really BAD book covers when tere's also stuff like this.
Wonderful.
