Old man of forest

Still practicing with acrylics. I had some difficulties with lighting because usually I have some clear light source in an image. I'm not used to do "cloudy day" scenes. I'm really into Finnish folklore and I'd like to do more pictures inspired by it. This is an portrait of an old "peikko", troll creature who lives in deep forests or within big rocks. He is so aged that he has almost grew into part of the forest himself. Deep in his mind remain the memories of time the land broke free from the great ice and of the birth of life by ancient force.
