Merry Christmas, y'all!
Whipped this picture together to use as winter-time graphic for Silvestris.Net
. I started out drawing a snowy forest, needed an object of focus, and tried a few different ideas until finally I settled on an old favorite. For some reason, snow/ice deer work very well as a winter symbol for me.
This one is all icicle-y - a spirit of frost and snow, perhaps, an embodiment of the cold season. Ethereal, beautiful, but untouchable and cold. The purity of chill and ice.
Media Used: Corel Photopaint 9 (as always) and my Wacom Graphire3.
