Tea by Toru-meow Tea by Toru-meow
Hot tea is the most wonderful thing in the whole world. Well, except kisses))
The man is albino, yes)

Upd: Thank you for all kind words! I love you, guys! So sorry, but I can't answer to all of you, and I must give a little annotation to this piece. This is not historical scene, it is fiction. It's not Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan or China. It is my litte fantasy around of asian people and traditional clothing, a part of illustration for fantasy story wrotten by me and me friend. Sorry, but you can't read it eather. 8))
Next time I think I must show some of traditional russian costume...
Cheers!

Funny you mention Kazakhstan, because the woman totally looks Kazakh. I was actually very surprised when I met my first traveler from Kazakhstan and she was a strikingly gorgeous, vaguely asian looking woman with a Russian accent lol. Not every single person from Kazakhstan obviously has this very unique appearance, but many do.

Gorgeous work. I can almost feel the warmth of the tea in contrast to the bitter cold!

This man... he is just hot, dark and still seemed so kind toward her.. a beautful woman.. I am in love with this picture.. Could you tell me the concept of the story :)

Well.. The basis of this pic is love story, written by me and my frend. It's fantasy, with piece of Asian history - like "Imperial Lady: A Fantasy of Han China" by Andre Norton. It' was made for fun, nothing serious))))
The albino is noble man, full of pride, but ugly. He terrorized the neighbourhood, untill one day he fell in love with young girl from village. She is sacred dancer of cult and will become shaman someday.People at the backstage are companions of albino - servants and warriors.
I just wanted to show the characters' day camping on their way to capital of country. They live in the furthest state amongst mountains

Well, the girl reminded me of the Inuits, the eskimos, so she was travelling with her family and stuff and when they get threatened he comes helping them. because he is a loner with quite a background story the father of the girl, the head of the family, asks him to stay with them. Then they fall in love :3 hihii

Oh wow, this is utterly gorgeous!  I love the contrast of the man's skin with his black coat and the woman's beautiful cocoa skin!  The decorations in her hair look Native American to me.  I know it's fiction, but it's pretty well-recorded that the Russians visited the Aleutian Islands.  Maybe this is a meeting for trade?

It is absolutely beautiful. I love it when people create fantasy worlds inspired by something OTHER than celtic mythology and design. Nothing wrong with that stuff (I enjoy it myself) but there is so much more in the world to pull magic and beauty from.

The bitter cold needs bitter tea. 

A very charming and unbelievably well detailed depiction of winter.

 "A perfect pastoral of the precarious peaks of the piercing polar province that these people pass through on their perilous promenade."
