last goodbye by drachenmagier last goodbye by drachenmagier
I think the song The Last Sled fits the mood well. I'm not sure why I feel somewhat sad when I look at it. But it's there. Hence the title.

Drawn because I was told it’s impossible to draw a moose magical. And I went from there.


Critiques are like always greatly appreciated. Though I was already told that my magical moose looks a bit like a caribou. :D I can live with that. Cariboumoose sounds cute.

This is a really great piece. The colors are used really well and the color scheme is amazing. The textures and details are very well done. The design is great and the formatting is nice. There could be more dynamic lighting though, and perhaps maybe more of a mood or story to it. The picture overall comes to life pretty well. I don't know what program or tools you use so I'm not sure what limits you have, but overall this is a beautiful drawing.

Just typing this to reach the word minimum hello hello hello hello hello hello lol

For a piece that uses a very limited color palette, this is very well done. Aside from the veiled moose, the remaining details vary in subtlety: at first, the background seems to be all watercolor smoke until you notice the mountains. The veil disguises the fact that the moose's antlers are actually floating. The arrangement of dark and light is nicely done as well, and encourages the eye to flow around the image from the moose, to the smaller deer, to the light space, to the veiled antlers, and finally to the mountains and back toward the central figure.

My only suggestion would be a more thorough referencing of the main subject in future works; at first I thought the moose was actually an Elk due to the shape of the antlers and the face. However this is only a minor issue with an otherwise beautiful piece!

I adore how the antlers are floating above his head. That's when you know you've got a magical caribouoose on your hands.
