I did quite a bit of sketching (on good old fashioned paper) and settled for something fairly human, but much taller. A giant! These ice druids ally with elves, whom make helmets for their tall friends (the hands of the ice druids are much to large to be able to do something useful, other than tearing out trees ).

Well then, here it is... my very first CHOW! You guys are such an inspiration!
My character, he's a busy fellow. During winter, he has to look after the forest and its inhabitants, and make sure they survive the harsh weather. When he encounters an unfortunate victim to the cold, he makes sure that they are properly buried and guided to the afterlife. With a short incantation he guides the spirit out, and though it grieves him to lose one of his children, he knows it is now one with the forest.

Skya, after the Celtic warrior princess, is now more feared than her namesake.
With her Scream she can unleash all the forces of Winter, freezing armies where
they stand. She stays in the forests, tending to her trees and animals, and
worshipping the elemental spirits. Woe betide any who venture unknowingly into
her woods, or lay harm to those who dwell within them.
Ice druids like hanging out with animals, in the hope that one day they will learn how to turn into one.
She's learning it's secrets, one by one.
Some words for the druid. A man of mystery stalks the frozen forests searching for the sacred mistletoe to gain favor from the gods and end this never-ending winter. His left arm has succumb to frostbite but stays with him through some unknown power.
"An object at rest cannot be stopped!" - The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight
The Ice Druid in the final stages of full enlightenment. The druid is sent off into the wild at the height of winter with only one body wrap scribed with sacred text. Their body is destroyed by hypothermia and frostbite. If they are true to their path, the whole body (the heart being last) will be replaced with an ice form and will become a true force of nature.
First time entry for any CA.org project. I'm an art student posted here like 3 times but don't usually manage to keep up with it. I'm hoping to try and get into more of these. Hope you like the entry. C&C welcome.
Enki is a druidess of the Aia. Living in the frozen north, the Aia tribe worships the gods of ice. Thier druids learn their calling at a young age, showing natural ability to dominate over the elements and an affinity for nature.
This is my only my 2nd chow, so any comments and crits are welcome.

First Chow, folks! Here goes!
Jerry Heck is a small town modern day druid. He runs around shirtless in 30 below weather in a ritual performed 2 days a year in the month of January. The hypothermia is a reminder of nature's power, and how he must respect it. He has also modified his druid hood to include a pine cone beer helmet. The nectar of the pine cone is sweet indeed.
Here's my two pence worth, hope you guys like it.

My entry for 'Ice Druid'
"I'm a damsel, I'm in distress, I can handle this! Have a nice day."
...Some sort of sketchbook...
I had trouble with my network so took a while to post.
He knows there was a time, long ago, when the druids did important things, like... like... well, whatever.
Now he's on an endless quest for the perfect ice wine ingredients. He seeks out the rare ice plants to harvest and take back to his people. Under its divine guidance, he's pretty sure that the judgements he renders for his people come straight from the nature spirits.
Here's my first go at a CHOW. Any crits welcomed. The Ice Druid controls the elements bringing snowstorms and blizzards on weary travellers.
In my presentation I tried to recapture the beautiful stillness of icy world. The owl represents life. The deer skull is death. And Icy Druid is a balance of both. The druid himself is part of this icy environment. Without him the world of life and death would fall apart.
