Kristine Macasieb: Organic Tonal

Here's my black and white painting for an organic environment. I thought more about what could be taking place in this scene and decided that it would be after the prince got the water of life from the castle. He meets up with a shrewd magical dwarf, who has just informed him that his brothers are trapped in a ravine. The youngest prince tries talking the dwarf out of keeping them captive.

I had alot of trouble with the frozen waterfalls in the background. I tried to paint it after these kind of icicle formations but I'm still not very happy with how they came out.

edit: slightly changed

  1. This is a great start. The drawing feels solid. Foreground feels empty. Could either be cropped tighter or use something interesting there. Brighter atmosphere, darker shadows could help this feel like a larger space. Forms on the snow is flattening out. Rounder shadows there could help.
