New Release - Rudolph & Nickolaus

I let my imagination loose for this years Christmas painting, posing a slightly different origin story for these two icons of the Season. What was St. Nick like when he was younger, before he became 'Santa Claus'? And what if he and Rudolph had a lifelong bond and a long history together? I was really enthused to render my version of Rudolph, a more realistic look versus the familiar clay-mation one and also to do my interpretation of Santa/Nickolaus as a young buck himself.
