I may submit another one, but I'm not sure if I'll have time to draw something more. It would be helpful, though, to know when it officially ends: next week, next month, ... if you know what I mean

Okay, I finally got around to completing something. Now if I can get the image to actually post I will be a happy camper. Here goes nothing:

Well, I've tried to do a two more entries, but I'm not sure if they look good when scaled down.

Some sort of snowy landscape.

And a snowboarder.

Maybe a different background. He seems like a pyrelord.

I think the background is really good! I just don't like how it gets lighter to the left of his hat and to the right of his body. Maybe make the face darker too.

Alright, I tried to use both of your suggestions.

I'm just not sure if the man contrasts enough with the background.

Thank you very much

About yours, I like both of them. The first one gets my attention much more than the second, but I agree with Clancy12 about the background.

You're probably right about the second one, though. Maybe the colours are too similar and the man doesn't contrast enough, but I still like it. I'm going to pretend that I know something about art and say that I would try to use lighter colours for the background, especially at the top (something like the lilac at the left side of the man's arm). I don't know...
