 a peace loving creature that lives in the the north. many people find it odd that Hiems seems to be more active during the colder season than the warmer ones.

 this lead the people of the north to believe that it must be a spirit of winter. the people would follow Hiems because its always seems to know where some trees still bared fruit and the lead them to streams that still have fish. 

the people believe that the gods had sent Hiems to help them through the harsh winter, they leave offerings and protect the creature from anyone. this was a fun one to make its a cross between a giraffe, deer and polar bear. i think im getting better at doing backgrounds

This is lovely! Very atmospheric...you can feel the winter and the creature seems kind (it’s the eye). Your background is indeed a good background: sets the tone of the piece. I need to learn to do better backgrounds: I always leave it at the end and rush it. Great work! you could write a background tutorial! I know I’d learn from it!
