A sketch I did for an unannounced project via Fabelfjord, depicting Amundsen on the South Pole.
Really hard to find proper reference photos since most of the images from the South Pole is actually from the British Terra Nova expedition which was a failure and ended tragically. Amundsen won the polar race and survived the whole expedition. A true viking!
The composition was challenging since it’s really just a completely flat white plane with a little tent with the Norwegian flag. So I used the characters to create a mode interesting composition and put the focus on Amundsen.
Studying references I later found out that Amundsen got white hair at a really early age, probably because all his intense expeditions, so I should probably have drawn him more like an old man hair-wise.
