This digital painting was done without reference. Ah just sat down and working in Paint Tool Sai until Ah had created an atmosphere that satisfied me. The snow always has more color in it than you imagine it would, and shadows and contrast never fail to amaze me.
Ah actually found this while walking around the Provo Mall at Christmas time. It was beautiful, so Ah took a picture and then painted it digitally. The trees and lights were very fun to play with.
