Nordic Boy

This is my 5th of 6 illustrations depicting children from 6 continents. I love the softness of the boys face and the snow against the high detail of his clothing and the reindeer's fur and antlers. I wasn't sure if the purple trees would work in the background, but I am really happy with them. It might sound surprising, but I usually don't struggle with the high detail, its the atmosphere that challenges me most: letting a couple shades and lines tell the story of the landscape.
