Ok this is pretty much a re-hash of my Lost Toys story but with a festive twist!
It doesn't come across to well in these images but the polar bear lights up in the globe and appears in the bedroom - and glows at the end to return to it! Have tried to avoid using too much symmetry which I think works well with the open landscapes.
Influences for this were The Snowman, Polar Express and The Golden Compass. Currently collecting a load of images (visual references) of polar bears and snowy scenes while experimenting with making snow in photoshop!
