Dawn with Dog by Finnguala Dawn with Dog by Finnguala
Added dog because someone said he looked lonely. Also made the footprints a little less dark so they don't stand out so much. Which version do you prefer?

Hi there! I've chosen you as the 13th person for my 200 Comments Project Challenge. Basically I'm giving comments to 200 different people in a time frame within a week :D (Big Grin)

This is really stunning! Gotta say I really love the wintery landscape and the way the light is reflected in this piece really adds to the overall context of the drawing. It seems that the man and also the dog is at peace with the beautiful natural atmosphere. Also the way you done their footprints in the snow is brilliant! :)

Thanks, I read about it in your journal, great idea :D

I drew this card for an association committed to helping depressed people, so I wanted it to be comforting and encouraging, so I'm happy you think the man looks at peace :)

This version looks better and the colours are amazing Clap
But i think that most dogs keep their body in the same position when they look at you, so he should be facing in the same direction as the footsteps

I think there would be more footprints then, but this is the only flaw I can find, good job La la la la

Dag Saskia, hopelijk vind je 't ok dat ik reageer in het nederlands, het is immers ook m'n eigen taal (ben wel een Belg...:)
"Dawn with Dog" is heel sterk in beide versies, echt waar.
Zonder hond: heel expressief , ongecompliceerd ...
Met hond: spanningsveld tussen dier en mens komt heel goed "uit de verf " !
Wat je andere werken betreft: heel knap, vooral de meeste potloodtekeningen vind is super...
Ik zag ook je werken in je portfolio..mooie verzameling, leuk...
suggestie : pierrevandermeersch.artworkfolio.com
succes nog en een leuke zondag ! :)

Dag Pierre, natuurlijk vind ik dat prima! Dit is zeker een van de aardigste berichtje die ik ooit heb gekregen hier op deviantART. Veel mensen nemen niet de tijd om echt naar iemands werk te kijken (maar er staat dan ook zo ongelofelijk veel kunst hier op deze website...). Kan wel zeggen dat je mijn zondag een stukje beter hebt gemaakt ;)

Ik heb jouw werk ook even bekeken, ik vind vooral de texturen mooi in je digitale kunst. Goede atmosfeer ook! Ik hou niet zo van die gladgestreken airbrush-schilderijen.

Hey Saskia,
dank voor je leuke reactie op m'n berichtje. Lief van je...
Weet je, dat van jou heeft eigenlijk ook mijn zondag een stukje beter gemaakt. :)
Dat is net wat ik ook al een hele poos vind van deviantART. Ook bij andere "devianters" zie ik reacties als "amazing , woow", ongetwijfeld ook met de beste bedoelingen, maar daar heb je weinig feedback aan.
Nu ja, wat zijn we aan het filosoferen op dit latere uur :) Leuk dat je ook even naar mijn werk hebt gekeken..
Dank voor je positieve commentaar ! Eerlijk gezegd zou ik het fijn vinden nog eens van "ideeŽn te wisselen". Ik dring me niet op hoor, maar ik vond het echt wel leuk.
Zo, ik wens je nog een goeie nacht he :)
