This is absolutely stunning! The airy atmosphere, the gesture, the pose, everything is spot on and yet effortless. I really like your style. The strokes are still visible yet not overstated. I tend to tighten my work up too much, even in my concept art. Wish I could loosen up and still have some artistry like this.
Well it's actually a culture created by D&D and it's in their reference for the art test they have gong on. But ya I was seeing a good match up of Nordic, Eskimo, Eastern European, and Mongolian. Quite a good handful of interesting references.
