I was inspired by seeing a few of those "in show" style pics so I thought about trying one myself. Sorry for some sloppiness in the background, I'm still working on making better settings for pictures.
Winter has rolled in, and with it, Saff is wandering the snowy hills outside of the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, mostly to get some piece and quiet away from society. It is somewhat clear that he was approached by a being not pictured but that whoever did come doesn't seem to be out looking for a brawl. Being used to fighting and violence Saff's first reaction (or instinct/reflex) was to put his guard up, which he is in the middle of dropping with a questionable look on his face at this exact time.
Fact of the matter is, he hasn't gotten along well with too many others for awhile, he's really only open to a small set of closer friends and really just turns himself off in public. His general distrust is kind of sad since it prevents too much socialization and unless around those previously mentioned friends, he really just sticks to himself. He is cold to the world, hence the name. Provided the chance to maybe talk he will probably walk out and continue to wander the cold for awhile. It'll probably be a lonely Christmas.
Clean shot of the render is located in my scrapbook at this [link]
