The Blizzard

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Mitch la Guardia

Mikheil, a badger knight from Western Russia, forges his way though a whiteout, knowing that if he stops, he will become buried in the freezing white all around him. Before he won his horse, Feliks, in a card game, he was forced to travel on foot, even through the worst of climates. His cape, though lined with wolf fur, does little to keep him warm constantly thrown about by hard winds, laving his pallium as his only bodily defense against the bitter cold. I have wanted to draw this image for a long time, but had to wait until I learned the proper Photoshop skills to attempt it. As much as I love the final effect, it drives me nuts that so much detail is now covered by snow. Still, think you could survive being lost in such a blizzard?
