Arctica by CanisAlbus Arctica by CanisAlbus
A new character, Isuitsuk. The eldest of her pack of arctic wolves and highly respected because of her life experience and broad knowledge of  earthly and otherworldly matters. She's an Inuit shaman and sort of a matriarch of the tribe. Despite her loving nature she's also rather fierce, free-spirited and fun-loving old lady who always speaks her mind.

She often wears a crown made of bones, with a web of leather strings tied around them. A collection of small wooden plates hangs from the web and her tail. When she moves, the plates hit each other, creating very characteristic clicking sound. The web and the sounds are thought to attract and conduct the spirual power of the polar nature all around, making it flow through her and increasing her wisdom.

She has central heterochromia (sky blue eyes with yellow rings around pupils). This is her summer coat. In wintertime she turns almost white. She belongs to the northern regions of Alaska and Canada, which makes her my first OC with North American origin.

Staedtler pigment liner, Faber-Castell colored pencils, watercolors.

Love the design! The bone crown makes me think of religious icon art portraying haloes, perfect for a shamanic elder. And, as always, the fur texture is just gorgeous. :heart:
