(Sorry about the big logo in the middle! I've seen this picture stolen in a lot of places and some people are even trying to sell it without my permission so I just want to protect my work.)

Fox fire; A northern European folk term for the Aurora Borealis.
In Finland we call them "revontulet", literally fox's fires. It's based on an old folk lore where the fox creates the northern lights with its tail.

Once again, something I've wanted to draw for ages, possibly for years but been waiting for the right idea on how to do it. And last night I started scribbling it and just kept drawing and drawing and... got it finished today! Really enjoyed drawing this and been wanting to paint a starscape too :)

took around 8 hours I think, drawn in photoshop
and tried lots of new things with layers/lights/shadows again. I can't seem to stop experimenting with every piece haha but guess that's not a bad thing anyway X)

thanks for taking a look :)
and please no copying/using without a permission!
