Dream Under the Northern Lights, Michelle Boulad (2D)

Title: Dream Under the Northern Lights
Name: Michelle Boulad
Country: Australia
Software: Painter

Under the flickering northern lights, the polar bear sleeps soundly.

And as he sleeps, he dreams...

Of rising into the air like a snowflake on an updraft off the early spring tundra; of swimming through the aqua lit sky as though he were underwater, chasing the laughing fur seals that leave trails of shining stars in the heavens.

As he dreams his feet twitch with every dream stroke of his legs through the sky of water--through the shimmering Northern Lights.

It is a good dream, and he is happy.

For the Childrens Illustrator club on DA, November theme-- Polar Bears. Painter and wacom intuos, about 10 hours total.

Nicely done, reminds me of Knute the baby ice bear (polar bear) born in the Berlin Zoo last year around this time:


Sweet dreams, little bear! :-)
