A new one.
As usual, made in Vue with a little help from Poser and Photoshop.

Hope you don't mind me using this as song art for my latest track. I don't get paid to for my music. It's just hobby stuff. :)

I love your framing. In this case however I wonder how it would look if the man was standing atop the rock in the center. Just a thought. Great work!

Thanks! That's quite an honor to have you commenting on my images. :) You were one of my early inspirations when I started with CG.
You mean, like the girl in this image? [link]
Because I had done the girl on that rock, I wanted something different in this new image. Or are you talking about something different?

The honor is all mine! I've been following your work for quite a few years now and I am a big fan. I'm absolutely thrilled to hear that I played some tiny role in your beginnings!

I saw your figure as being maybe twice as large as he/she is now but standing on the tallest part of the rock (slightly off-center to the right). Not as large as you have her in your linked piece.

Either way, I can certainly sympathize with wanting to change things up from piece to piece.

Again I love the reflections, this landscape looks very harsh, also, the mysterious object in the distance is a cleaver focal point.

The foreground is like the image The other side. There is a WingMaker poem I love written on the shortest day of the year, winter solstice, and your image reminds me of it.

"On this the shortest day of the year, I have journeyed to the great plains to build a fire for you..."

Although there is no fire, I can imagine it within the heart of your figure.

Yes, good observation! :) I did use the same cave I made for "the other side", with just a small change in geometry (to adjust to the wider image) and color (to adjust to the color palette I used in this one).
Yes, he's very determined to reach his target, despite the cold and inhospitable land, so a fire within his heart seems appropriate.

Beautiful winter landscape. Very interesting composition, and I really like the person you added, it gives a much better sense of scale.

I included the person for two reasons: a sense of scale, as you said, and also a sense of purpose. :)

Amazing! looks like a scene from a fantasy novel, that spike in the distance some sort of city spire, or lost temple, or castle tower etc. truly beautiful. the small figure makes me wonder what he is doing in what appears to be a very cold wilderness. :love:

I wanted to give this a good dose of mystery, I think it's an important ingredient to enjoy an image.

:nod: to truly enjoy it, i do love an element of mystery. i admit to being a sucker for pure, undiluted cute though. but this, this is... words cannot describe how beautiful it is.

Wow this is epic! I love that it took me a moment to notice the head of the statue in the snow. There's a whole lot of detail in this, from the waterfall beginning in the foreground, to the snow wisping off the top of the mountain areas...Bravo!
