This is pure distilled epicness, when I see this picture I immediately think of The Dresden Files, in this series, Santa is Odin so it makes perfect sense.

Nicholas the red. Giver of gifts and dispeller of darkness. 

love the LoR style and awesome perspective.

This is suh-weet! Of course, those elves immediately reminded of Lord of the Rings, which is a lot cooler than some midget in a pointy hat.

Very Odin-ish. Which makes sense since Santa is partially based off of Odin.


Santa the Red, though? Badass.

Erm. No? Santa is based on Saint Nicholas and "designed" by Coca Cola. And nothing else.

Saint Nick was part of it, but there were multiple sources.

Odin's bit was soaring through the sky around Yuletime on his flying horse.

Sound familiar?

There was also the Dutch gift-giver, Sinterklaas, and the German gift-giver, Christrkindl (Kris Kringle), as well as the British Father Christmas. They all fused together over the centuries to become the one Santa we know today.

I have always thought an epic, high fantasy Santa Claus novel would sell, and this picture only makes me believe that even more.

This is awesome. I love how aggressive you made everyone, even the reindeer, in this pic. The perspective and the needle like snow gives it a nice sense of speed.
