The smallest Hero by MinnaSundberg The smallest Hero by MinnaSundberg
~Every five years, at the time of the first snow storm of the winter, a lone Wolf will travel down from the Restless forests and into the Peaceful meadows. The Wolf wrecks havoc, destroys every nest it finds and slaugthers those animals that haven't found a good enough place to hide, then leaves as suddenly as it came, and won't be seen for the next half of a decade.
And every time the animals of the meadows will choose the bravest warrior to challenge the beast, believeing and hoping that one year the messanger Bullfinch will fly to the Hiding Place bringing word of a great victory. Then the Peaceful meadows would finally truly be peaceful. ~

This one is probably the personal artwork I've spent the most time on in AGES, and my hand doesn't even hurt this time! : D I finally decided to mix around with the sensitivity-settings of my tablet, and behold; not having to constanly press the pen down as if trying to kill it miraculously relives the stress on my wrist. Who would have thought... ^^'

I found this on a desktop background site a year or two ago. Without any context provided i actually thought it was a Usagi Yojimbo tribute. Fantastic piece and great to finally see your other artwork.

Whoa, this is a long time ago, I believe it was first covered in snow and mist. Although I am glad the snow has stayed behind for feel and setting.
A great work nonetheless.

It's really magical. The wolf gives me creeps, and our hero looks so brave. It has a great perspective, and I can almost hear the wind howling between the trees. All those fur details and bones and feathers must've taken years, and ti looks awesome. The story it great, too, good job!

So, uh, were you a fan of the Redwall books growing up? This art really reminds me of (the better elements of) that series, quite a bit. In a good way. Without being derivative. Kudos!

There's a great epic feel to this. From the blowing of the wind containing the hints of winter snow to accentuate the cold feeling of the atmosphere. How much of the Wolf is not entirely visible, enhancing its meancing appeal. Throwing in the story passage only made this even better. I applaud you, good sir, for creating this.
