Without a doubt, the background makes a truly strong impression on the viewer at first glance, with a stunning display of light, stars and like a frosty dew to evoke the feeling of a cold, yet beautiful, winter's night.
Your depiction of the animal staring ahead has that real striking quality to it, and leaves viewers like me to wonder just what's going through its' head at the moment. Perhaps it has spotted a new meal, or is it going to set forth on a new journey trudging through the snow?
Excellent work, bottom line. Finding quality digital pieces like this is a blessing to the eyes.
