A quick illustration of the tale East of the Sun and West of the Moon. I made about 10 illustrations for this project and there is still 5 or more to be done...

I see the Golden Compass here! I love that movie!

yeah, I see it too. XD
But I don`t like the movie, I'm a fan of Pullman and his books.
But you know, when I first saw the movie coming out I didn't know the Golden Compass trilogy... So I thought "oh, that's the Polar Bear King!". Today I know very well both of them, the fairytale and Pullman's Golden Compass... And I can say they do look alike but the stories are completely different. =)
And I love both.

For some reason, this reminds me of the Golden Compass film. Love it! Very beautiful detail there.

Yes, of course! It's because the golden Compass is based on a book trilogy... and it has hints of this Norwegian fairytale. I love both of them. =)

i think that the image of a girl riding a polar bear is the most iconic image of the most famous norwegian fairy tale

OOH! I love this story! But my favorite version is called "Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow". If you liked  East of the Sun and West of the Moon, you should definitely read "Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow". :)

Yes, it's normal, it's because the Golden Compass (I don't know if you are talking about the movie or the books) was probably inspired by this norwegian fairytale. At least there are parts that resemble a lot Pullman's trilogy.
And thank you for the "really good" part. :aww:

Yes, it's normal. I always think it's a Lyra+Iorek fanart when I see a picture of this fairytale. I can't help it... =)
The point is, the fairytale has many similarities with Pullman's trilogy. And I love both, HDM and the fairytale.
Thank you for the compliment.

Pretty cool, I thought this was Lyra and Iorek from the Philip Pullman books, but then I noticed the bear didn't have armour. I remember this story from a movie once, and I like how you designed these two, especially their expressions. Also, I like how you drew the woman's outfit.

I understand. The first thing I think when I see a East of Sun West of the Moon illustration is "OMG LYRA AND IOREK!!!" And then I see it's about the fairytale. (I'm a great fan of Pullman :aww:)
The movie was probably "The Polar Bear King".  =)
And thank you for your support! :heart:

I guess Pullman was kinda inspired by this tale. =) And btw, I love "His Dark Materials" trilogy. Maybe I'll draw a fanart of it someday.
Anyway, thank you for your kind words.
