Snow Monster Hunter

Zigfreid,12, is the youngest Snow Monster Hunter alive. He's captured thirty six beasts so far in a short but impressive career that started when he was only 7 years old.
Here is a photo of him taken on December 18th 2008 in Antarctica with his latest catch, a Category Six 2.3 tons Monster.

Hey, that's really fantastic! Both the concept and the artwork. Is this just a one off or is this for a project of some kind?

Nice one! I like the backstory - and the ice cream scooper?

Thanks! This is a piece I made for the Avalanche Art challenge, the compagny I work for. The theme was "Snow Monster". I just like to make up a little story for each illustration I make! :)

Mark:
Yeap, the ice cream scooper, Zigfreid favorite weapon! :)
