Snow by Horus-Goddess Snow by Horus-Goddess
comment: This was pretty random... well kind of. I just had a picture of Bevan in his long black trenchcoat in the snow in my head so.. I drew it. It was influenced by all the snow fall we had yesterday and last night (some of this morning). We had 20 inches of snow. :O_o: And it's freakin' APRIL. Well.. that's Colorado for you I suppose. lol.

Anyway. Yes. I wasn't originally going to shade this but I just felt like adding some substance to it... so I did it the cheapo way by using the lasso tool in Photoshop 7.0, along with the brush here and there for the snow and mountains, and some of Bevan. I like the outcome I have to say, even though I'm almost certain there will be people who don't read this description who will assume he is a female, WHEN HE IS NOT FEMALE. :shakefist: If you know your anatomy you will be able to tell. He has no hips, some leg muscle kinda shows but the coat billows out and kinda sways so that might effect how he appears. It is kinda femme but I like it. It's pretty. And I don't do graytone pics much, so it was a nice change I think.

Well that's all for now... I'll probably work on commissions next since I'm still kinda-sorta on art block. I think doing commissions will help me out of that. :nod:


time: 3 hours 50 mins (approx)
completed: April 11th 2005
music: Vocal Trance @ www.di.fm (Gosh this music is addicting... great to draw to too)
medium: 0.5mm #2 mechanical pencil, fine tip & Super Sharpie, sizes 005, 01 ZiG Millenium inking pens, medium Faber Castell on Cardstock (heavy, smooth finish). Graytones, border, and copyrights added in Photoshop 7.0.

Bevan and artwork copyright 2005 Marie Whatley (=Horus-Goddess)

thanks! but uh... could you please resist using all caps? That's usually what people use if they're yelling in an angry manner lol. Perhaps if you tried to type correctly people would take you more seriously?

Either way, thanks for the comment. I just wouldn't want you to offend anyone unintentionally. that's the only reason I said anything.

Actually I think I don't prefer either. lol. I hate the summer cuz it's so freakin' hot, I don't like winter cuz it's so freakin' cold (I only like it if I can stay inside with some hot coffee to watch TV and stuff).. my fave season.. would probably be Autumn. :nod: Not too hot, not too cold. Just the right in-between. ^^

Anyway. Thankies so much for your comment!

I almost forgot to mention that I loved the pose of your character! I like feminine poses ^u^ I have quite a few of those in my gallery...and I love the snowy environment! Two loves merging into one :nod: makes me say! It's kinda weird, my body is very cold resistant, that's why I have a preference for winter, cuz I get WAAAY too hot during the summer and get lotsa sunburns :fork:

Awsome! So....chromatic (a word?) and shiney. :XD: For some reason, it reminds me a lot of the "Sin City" theme and style. All black and white, with dramatic contrast and trenchcoats. It's a good thing though! I really adore this picture ^_^

I still and probably wont see Sin City (my boyfriend said it was too gory for my tastes and I trust him. ^^;). So I didn't get any ideas for this from that... it was more like the comic book style. ^^ Thanks though!

Ah well! Nice pic! I really like the black, white and grey. Best colors to show a snowy day.

We had snow in Ohio early April. The pose reminds me of those Egyptian reliefs with a sort of tiger-like God as the model. And then I remembered that there's no snow in the desert, & then I swore a lot. :star:

heehee. you and me both. xD If I could make him real I would be in heaven. I almost have the real thing since the character in this pic represents my boyfriend and looks a lot like him (despite my femme men style): You can go to his and my stock gallery ~ godfiles-stock to see some pics of us. And don't ask about the name, Kenny (my bf) wanted to name it that.. XD

Anyway. yeah, thank you. :D I'm glad you like my art!
