The way he is all wrapped up, even with gloves, IMHO calls for a bit of a "chilly effect" and if not covering the whole scene with snow, at least you must show small puddles of snow here and there, again IMHO.
Ok, given that in Fantasy, the sky is the limit, but again if a piece is clad and wrapped in fur, leggings, gloves etc etc, then it all points to one direction.......>>>>>>> COLD, and what better way to represent COLD when one can't feel the COLD? You have to make the COLD visisble/portrayed IMHO and I stand to correction as always.
It would be nice to step away from stereotypes, but one must remain in the boundaries of the piece that is provided and the subsequent scene setting.
Snow per se is FEARED by most modellers as you can always ruin it just like you can ruin any other natural setting IMHO, so going for it where applicable, is a big challenge, as I said feared my many and accomplished by few!!!
Sam, it depends where you want to stand!!! Either unrecognised in a huge crowd, or recognised in a small gathereing. The choice is yours laddie.
