Across the Ice It Came by SamuraiDragon Across the Ice It Came by SamuraiDragon
The Nightspacer is a creature who bends the natural elements into supernatural creations, in this case, it has created ice, using unnatural powers to give it its glow.

Here, it has created a world for itself. A place of both eternal night and ice. A cold, grey place with naught but the shine of a frozen moon to light the way.

The Nightspacer is a creature of mystery, forever changing.

-----------------

This picture is the sequel of [link] , one I created almost a year ago. Funny how my styles changed, for better or for worse. Point of opinion really. I can't decide between the two ._.


Anywho, I started this as just a background practice, and it turned into something more. I added the Nightspacer last.

I really like how the moon came out.

I know I coul've put more colours in, but the theme of the piece is indeed, blue and grey. As bleak as the Nightspacer is cheeky.

The anatomy is a bit out to. He's jumping up onto the ledge if you cant tell and think he's floating x3 (A couple of people have thought that during the creation)

The Nightspacer is (c) to me, so don't steal!! D<

Hey! This is so awesome, that me and my band, named Iced Inside would like to ask you, if we could use this as a background for our homepage? We are a hungarian melodic death metal band, inspired by bands such as Children of Bodom, Ensiferum, Hypocrisy. We'd put your name and a link on the page if you'd like to :)

Hey, thanks so much. Could I have a link to your website to check it/ your music out?

I'd be happy to let you use my artwork. Just add in as you've said - the title, my name and a link to my page.
That would be awesome.

Thanks for showing interest! :)

Great! Thanks!

You can check our music at myspace ([link] ), or Facebook ([link])
We are currently recording the next EP, containing 5 brand new songs, it should be out in august. (If you like it, you could show it to your friends :D)

Our website is under construction, but as soon as it's ready, I'll send the link. :)

And it would be even greater, if you have, and could send this artwork in higher resolution to wachpet@freemail.hu

All the lighting and shading is very well done, and the moon really is beautiful. The way it was colored makes it look like it's truly glowing.

Ohmy. Thanks so much for asking rather than simply taking. C:

I'm sorry, but the Nightspacer (it has no actual name) is a close character of mine, rather than a species. There can't be more than one. There is a reference sheet in my gallery if you want to learn more about it.
Again I'm sorry, I am protective of my OC's (I worry people will take their back-stories just as much, if not more, as I worry about their appearance being taken)

I'm sure with a bit of thought you'll be able to come up with something far more creative for El Que Llora (that's a really cool sounding name x3)
