Ten Bucks to Sudbury by retrolex Ten Bucks to Sudbury by retrolex
Guido again; for some reason snow and hitchhiking sprang to mind when I was sketching out this thing.

I first saw this illustration about 10 years ago and it became one of my favourites. It was the first work that truly made me realize that you can tell a story with a single wordless frame and it sparked a desire to step up my game and be more dedicated.

Now, after 3 years without producing much work, I'm trying to get back into shape and coming back here to see that this work is still up is absolutely motivating... definitely still holds up as one of my favourite artwork on this site. Cheers!

Very nicely done. I love the lines on the character, then the background being the way it is. It's a darker piece which is also nice and enjoyable. Very nice. :)

Goodness gracious. It's beautiful. The background. The snow on the trees and the flying snow. It impresses me! The clothes and his bags. *nods* Very nice. It's really just amazing. Particularly, the way the light falls against him. It's just wonderful. I wonder, though... what program you used for this..

Wow, do you mean Sudbury, Ontario? Haha, besides the amazing colours, the title kind of took me here. The background is so real looking, it's a very awesome effect. You have crazed skills!
RolfPlus Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2004  Student Traditional Artist
Sheesh... this has so much charachter and power that it's just oozing out of the monitor! The snow looks damn good, and you've done a great job just getting a good feeling down... good work, you should be very very proud!
Lemharth Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2004
I love how your colouring is so vibrant and works so well with the atmosphere and setting of the image. The snow is great and how you even added the glow from the ciggerette, overall another great picture. :)

SWEET LORD! That's cool.
korat Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2003
I have to agree with someone earlier... this is probably one of my all time favorite pieces of yours. It's the tones, the look on his face, the small, intricate detailing of his backpack and his jacket... everything pulls this piece together, right down to the soft glow of his cigarette.

I know exactly how cold that poor fella is. I don't care how much down he's wearing. ;) (Wink)
manseri Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2003   Digital Artist
this is just too amazing...
anonima Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2003
This's probably been my favorite of yours ever since you tacked it up on your web site. Dunno. Half of it is probably the amazing-ness of the way you rendered the blizzard, and the other half is probably the fact that Guido seems poifectly thievable. *this said with thieving plastic bag in hand behind her back*

Oh yes. It's blue. And a very well-done blue at that.
darksavior Featured By Owner May 23, 2003  Hobbyist General Artist
I love the snow/blizzard effect on the picture... I'd love to use some of these to make headers etc.. for you & aother deviants! Amazing picture!
