Surely the weapon is out of scale?

I don't think so.  She got it from the biggest koloss she could find, and they weren't playing with butter knives, haha.

No weapon that big could possibly be out of scale.

ya, the kolos swords are just giant slightly sharpened peices of metal. It even refers to them as "giant clubs"
Voilą! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant and vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified!

No, I think it said they swing them like clubs.  I'm pretty sure they were actually swords.

Hum. I did not remember that. I need to buckle down and re-read the whole series and make notations... I've gotten a bit through the first book, but that's not saying much.

Anyhow, update:



Generally improved, I hope.

Definitely an improvement. I like how you made the ash look--it makes the entire thing more interesting.

I still think there should be both snow and ash in it, however.

snow+ash=ashy snow.

Seriously, it makes grey snow or even black snow. You can't really have a mixture of black and white flakes, 'cause they mix up in the clouds.

Unless he actually describes a mix of the two in the text, (the author has the perogative to ignore physics as he pleases), I'm sticking with a mix of values in the ash for depth and the assumption that it's grey ash at best.

Plus, I've gone completely off the rails at this stage concerning any particular "scene". It's just a Vin pic now.

Surely the weapon is out of scale?

The text refers to her taking swords taller than she is, as long as she's burning pewter. He consistently refers to them as "swords", though he also makes it clear that they're big slabs of barely sharpened iron, not well-forged works of craftsmanship. I take what liberties I think I can get away with, but I try to stick to the text.

Very nice! I see you fixed the sky gradient, that bugged me a bit.

I would say definitely leave the eyes closed. Way cooler. Also, I think the ash flakes might be too big. They look a bit chunky to me. And personally I imagine the sky color to be a bit more chalky and the red less vivid and intense. Otherwise, its great!

Oh yeah, I think Vin should also be paler.

Maybe some more blood on the sword. Bright red, I should think, if we're about Koloss.
