Surprises in the moonlit night by Shockbolt Surprises in the moonlit night by Shockbolt
I've suffered from lack of creativity lately, had no inspiration whatsoever to paint anything fantasy-style. Luckily that's changed and here's the result of the two last days of painting on and off between all the christmas preparations :D

Idea behind it was to have a winter themed painting, snowcovered forest in cold blue moonlight. Then the dwarf and the giant spider appeared by themselves as I painted along.

Spent approx a full day on this one, painted in several layers, partial ref used for the spiders body.

Photoshop and a wacom tablet used.

"Sick wicked, Bro. Hey Brah, I'm hungry. You got any Fritos on ya?"

"no...I don't th --"

"Cause if you got any, I totally want to eat 'em, Bro. I'm so hungry right now, Bro."

"Why were you hiding in the snow?"

"You know... for --Reasons, Brah! I'm just chillin out here drinking Mountain Dew. Chill, Bro!"

"Alright, okay. ... I'm going to leave no."

"Nah, Brah. Don't go. Just chill with me for a bit. We can play Xbox, Brah."

"Out here? In the snow?"

"Yeah, Brah."

I'm forcing myself to stop here. I love your picture it is cool.

thanks for drawing it. It's really a beautiful piece
the composition and color pallet really suite the fantasy theme.
