Glacial Epoch by Rahll Glacial Epoch by Rahll
I started this painting almost a year ago, and I finally got around to finishing it up. It was within 2 hours of completion, but it was hard to go back to a painting I'd long since abandoned due to other work.

Anyway, it's sort of connected to one of my other paintings, a spiritual successor if you will. I also hope you catch my homage to one of my all time favorite films. Hope you like it!

Anyway, off to Comic Con!

Edit: Coming back to this, I realize I didn't credit a photo I relied heavily on for inspiration, so here's the link to the image. I initially started this as a study, and decided to turn it into something else, otherwise I would've changed around the structure a bit more, oh well!

As a true Norwegian, or half norwegian to be 100% correct, this warmes my heart :heart:

As a Norwegian I find it lovely to see my flag used in beautiful art like this. Made me think of Roald Amundsen, our polar explorer. And also The Thing, of course. You did a great job on this.

The easiest way for an artist to win a norwegian over is to include them in their art in some way.
Norway rarely gets any attention, so when we do, we are always totally stoked about it. As I am right now. =P

Ima fave this because of the Norwegian flag! Your art is always mad nice, but Ive never put one of your pieces in my favorites. I don't know why!? Seeing as I could basically put all your pieces in my favorites, never got a around to it I guess. Since the flag was in this Ima make this my first fave of your pieces;)

The reference is the Thing, is it the Norwegian Flag? Referring to the Norwegians that were killed at the beginning of the movie? =P

I have to say that while I really liked the movie's elements and designs, atmosphere, etc. The movie itself was just a bit slow moving.

I heard that there's a prequel in the works, it has the cast up, and I think it might even be completed. I'm not really excited for it though.
