I got tired of drawing snowflakes, even stick figure ones, so I cut out some pics of snowflakes and I'm moving them around on pastel backgrounds.
That edge-on snowflake is looking more like a flying saucer than a dancing snowflake tho. ;- j Needs a little work.
Not sure about the copses of trees yet. The seemed like a good idea. I'll work on placement.
Trees bigger in the foreground, points of the snowflake point to the castle and the edge-one snowflake (illusion of movement).
I might even put actual swirly lines for movement; have to think about that one.
One suggestion on fb: make foreground trees darker, which reminds me to make the middle ground trees lighter, for that distance-is-greyer effect. The castle, however, has to pop.
And I might move the castle just a smidge toward the middle so it's in the frame more.
Made the image narrow, more like the card dimensions (actually longer and thinner -- get exact dimensions before I carve!).
