I'd just finished playing the game Never Alone (Kisima Innitchuna), which is based on an Inupiat folktale. I was inspired to find out more about Inupiat and Inuit culture, including their stories about constellations and astronomical phenomena.


I decided to pick one well known constellation and depict it as interpreted by the Inuit. I went for Ursa Major, which is known as Tukturjuit (the caribou).



An extremely rough draft! I knew that I wanted the girl, the arctic fox and the aurora borealis in the composition but that was about it. I decided to let this project evolve as I went along. 


The finished product. Thanks for a great tutorial Ryan! This was my first experience with Adobe Illustrator, and you explained everything in a brilliantly simple way for newbies.
