This is my entry for the 2012 Emote Advent Calendar
I actually made the piece a few days ago but wasn't able to upload it until it had been revealed fro day 7 on the calendar. I felt in the past that a lot of my snow related emotes had been rather cartoonish with fake looking snow and generic representation of an xmas tree, so this time I wanted to go for a more realistic effect.
I decided I wanted to set the piece at night as it would give a more Christmas-y atmosphere and I used my previous ET related deviation
as reference to help get the trees in place. I then got to work adding in the details and finally added a couple of emotes to the scene.
Overall I'm proud of how this emote turned out as it actually looks better than I originally imagined. I'm equally happy that I didn't use transparency to help makes things blend so the total colour count is down to only 45 as opposed to my common 200+.
Do go and check out the rest of the project and stay tuned as a new deviation will be revealed each day. I can't wait to see all of the other pieces
