Today's Armor: Ice

Today's armor as some may have guessed is the Ice Armor. Not very Halloween-y, but it's a good welcomer to Winter. As a psuedo-Halloween piece. I have included the Bone armor, which I am gonna redraw (her hip bugs me and the chest piece is almost the same as the Voodoo Armor), and Beo killin' a pumpkin guy thing.

Now, before I leave you with this, I know what one critique is going to be.

"But Beo/James, snow has lots of color in it! You can't paint it gray!"

Well, whoever says this has bought in to a lie perpetrated by every travel agent trying to get people who to go to Alaska. The people who think this have never seen a Michigan winter, IT IS GRAY. Gray, grayer than the grayest that could ever be gray, the gray is so gray that the color gray is jealous of the grayness. Not only is it gray, but snow doesn't deserve color. It is such a pain-in-the-ass to shovel and worst to drive in. So that is why I'm leaving it gray.

The falling snow was more of a test of some quick Photoshop tricks and some custom brushes. Do they work? I think they are average, but I don't want to spend anymore time on them.

Comments welcome!
Thanks for viewing and Happy Halloween!
