Aiguille Du Midi

chamonix, aguille du midi, shaddy concept art.


Dell Inspiron 1525 / Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet / Photoshop CS5

Another fast second painting of the day, this time from the warmth of the cafe rather than the -3 celcius outside. The challenge I’m trying tackle with this kind of montain vista is how to indicate the scale of the little snow bits without having it look noisy (like it does in real life) and keep the painterly style. 1 hour in the field

    Fantastic view! I really love your environment work. I think it’s missing the I in Aiguille ;) , it’s beautiful over there.

    Thanks Sylvain! You’re right, the “i” is missing, my other french freind told me too:) Have you been to Chamonix? where do you live?
