Autumn Snow. by zemotion Autumn Snow. by zemotion
collab with :iconnoah-kh:. his version is here: [link]

i haven't done a digital painting in like a couple years. blame the weird/bad lights/snow and bad proportions and on me. i did the lineart, a bad one at that ^^; =noah-kh fixed up most of it while colouring. i painted the back and some misc stuffs and cleaned up some loose things and did some colours in the end.

i know you probably have many whys and this is super random. but forgive me, it's winter! i want snow and i don't see any! =(

also, i'm a little curious about something, do you prefer his colours or mine, now don't be shy, tell me~~~

the original sketchwork (which noah has cleaned up ^^;) was deeply inspired by someone i used to look up to alot when i was young, she'd left me a deep impression till today even though i don't see her anymore. ^^

Yeah, your kimono is better; I would only suggest you both put a little more detail into the face!
Absolutely beautiful...

Really well done ^-^, as for the colors I prefer yours, there is more contrast, the blue help to emphasis on the red dress.
Sorry for my poor english :s

i like your colors better. makes it feel colder i guess. very lovely by the way.
midnite3clipse Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2010
I like your colors more, because it matches the line art you drew. Yes, his colors are warmer, but because there is a katana dripping with blood I don''t think the warm colors would fit.. I would say the cooler tones you used matches the atmosphere of the picture more

I actually like yours better, and I'm not just saying that, yours has a better color balance, because you used blue in it.

i like his's warmer i think. but i like yours very much too!
everlynfaith Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010
I prefer your colors. His had a great warmth to it, but your creates an entirely new dreamlike effect. Very very nice!
QueenAces Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2010
The colours of both yours and noah-kh produce different effects. Personally, I like the warm tone of noah-kh. However, you wanted snow and I think your colours capture that better than noah-kh's because of the darkness and shadows. Days become shorter and therefore shadows longer, so your colours work better for the desired effect.

jay41234 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2009

Not really bad...
NekoHimeAnny Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2009
concerning the colours i really like yours because of the blue which gives the picture some cold feeling. i think that's personal matter cause i LOVE winter and blue tones ^^;
it gives more contrast and a more winter-like feeling

but *noah-kh's colouring gives a more warm feeling, so more like autumn. also very nice :)

so both of you did a great job! :D
LadyOichi Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2009
No matter how many times I see this image, I smile. I remember seeing it before I came to deviantart, and thinking it gorgeous and how beautiful the design was. The colors now, as they were back then, are vibrant and exquisite. The design is ever stunning. This shall always be a piece I return to.
GingerWeenies Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009
you are really talented! i love your works! :]
Jade-Pandora Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
both versions are lovely - but I'm leaning a bit more towards yours because I enjoy the slightly bluer, cooler, and more intense version of the color scheme...

this is an instant fave for me - well done!
zemotion Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009  Professional Photographer
Thanks :3
framb01s3 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I love both works! :heart:

As for the colours, I'm divided, because Noah's work is warmer, and yours is closer to what a rainy Autumn is. Also, the red dress involves us in a world of silk and sewn flowers, a world of spring, which is balanced with the bloodied sword. The light is perfect.

I love both! :heart:

Great job... Very beautiful, lovly, wandeful... ect ;)

I like this colours, andt another... I don't see i this picture

*looks between both versions*
It is amazing what one can do with color and how a variation in tone of pallet can alter an entire work.
I prefer the warmer tones myself. The colder look here is quite different from what I usually see and I respect the work for that, but the lay of the dress and the feel of the art seems to work better, to my eyes, with a warmer coloration.

How big is the original piece? I'm doing this for an artists study in my GCSE art project, and it wants to know how big the piece is. I already got the copyright information off the linked page. :)
Its awesome, I love the middle bit between the ropes. :)

neverXmore Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2008
I actually like your colours better. My reason is because her skin stands out way cool on the blue tinted background. The more golden background is quite close to her flesh tone, so they kind of blend into each other, while in your version, they contrast. The same goes for the coloured patterning on her kimono/dress/thing.
