Snowmen are melting

Drawing daily is a hard - Drawing conceptual themes daily is even harder! This is why we have decided to challenge ourselves to illustrate to one theme every month. Game? Here we go!

This months Theme is :

"Snowmen are melting"

Global warming or climate change are terms we have been hearing and living with for awhile now, but the average person is unconcerned about the impact of climate change. Perhaps we can use our visualization skills to spread the word?

" Global warming and climate change are terms for the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects." - Wikipedia

Scientists estimate that more than 95% of Global warming is caused by greenhouse gases and other human activities.

Also, check out this lovely video that inspired this topic, from Vice HBO ( Part 01 of the video )

Go ahead and start sketching.

      Great topic, Smitha, one I've already created art for as I used to live in the Arctic --where global warming is already a serious problem.  I used the 1940s Canadian superhero Nelvana as a springboard for the idea.  She was an Inuit demi-goddess who fought Nazis, aliens, and super-villains, but I think she'd really have her hands full with problems like global warming.

      If anyone would like to know what the Inuit (Eskimo) who live in the arctic really think of climate change, here's a link to a film made by Inuk director Zach Kunuk and climatologist Dr. Ian Mauro.

      And if anyone would like to know more about Nelvana, here's a link to her recently reprinted adventures.

    • This is just Amazing! I love this illustration :) I specially like the edge with the Eskimo's, polar bears and the glaziers breaking away. I look out for how artists compose and ensure they maintain the viewer's gaze - you have formed that superbly in this one - starting from the title and how Nelvana points to the breaking terrain.

      Lovely work! Thanks for sharing.

      Nelvana- I dint know of her, surely going to read this.They have such lovely cover illustrations :P Just started watching the video link you have posted.Thanks again for the links.

    • Its great to see artists getting Nelvana back to print with Nelvana kickstarter campaign :) Nelvana comics are probably needed more than the other super heroes.
