Subject title: Official Character Design Challenge #25 [Till Dec 6th]

Official Character Design Challenge #25

Introduction
The Character Design Challenge has been made to enhance the forum member's creative side of the brain and encourage them to improve. The challenge is made for any kind of skill level, anyone can participate. At the end of the challenge there will be a voting, and the winner receives a certain prize listed below. So go ahead and join, remember to read the challenge rules!

Rules
  • Accepted traditional and digital medium: pencils, ink & digital painting. The general design format can be turnaround, concept, facial expression sheet and/or animation.
  • You must associate your character design with at least two of the given tags(prompts). [Updated 2016, November 15th]
  • No extreme NSFW material is allowed. That includes genitalia, extreme gore and torture. [Updated 2016, November 15th]
  • The work must be started and finished between the starting and ending dates set for the challenge.
  • The picture submitted should be resized to 750-850px width(not height), preferably on IMGUR or any hosted site which does not delete images.

The idea for my character is that he's a yeti that hates the cold, but in sunny weather, becomes really friendly and delightful.

My submission: Kunwaktok, the last of his tribe. Some backstory about him on spoiler

Spoiler: show
An ancient tribe from the arctic is surrounded by exotic wildlife and several mineral resources, this tribe respects their surroundings and worships many gods related to nature. Each warrior of the tribe is devoted to a particular god, wearing tattoos showing their devotion as tradition. Kunwaktok was the champion of the tribe, devoted to the moon god, which is believed to live inside the moon and was said that moon cycles were a reflection of his mood.

A tragic day arribes, the worst of the auguries happens, a lunar eclipse that stains the moon red, the "Blood moon". Same night the tribe gets attacked by foreigners looking for resources by pillaging and murdering. The tribe defends itself with might, but outnumbered little of that matters. Kunwaktok knew that there wasn't a real chance to win the fight, then he remembered an old tale about the god he adored. This could only be achieved during a blood moon, by drinking the blood of one of his comrades, he would be able to borrow the power of the moon god. This was an unforgivable sin and the price to pay would be his own soul, he would be cursed forever.

He didn't care about that, if he could save the tribe it would be more than worth it. He silently backed to one of the dead bodies of his own and quickly drank his blood. He suddenly hears a whisper from the lunar deity: "It's not my power that you're borrowing, but the power of the dead", the expression of Kunwaktok changed drastically to a big sick smile. He went on a bloodthirsty frenzy, his eyes and tattoos turned red immediately, now he had the power of two and his killing instinct went on rampage. He fought brutally against the invaders, having a taste of each one's blood, increasing his power. When the battle was over only a few of the tribe remained alive, they didn't feel any relief though, they were scared of what they've seen. Kunwaktok looked at them and said: "We'll protect the land of the gods forever, as one"

Kunwaktok now is a legend, told to people to stay away from the extremely cold lands. It's said that he carries the skull of his lover and the one of his best friend to avoid feeling loneliness. He can't feel cold, carries a spear made of ice and only feeds of blood to maintain his power. His only mission is to protect the land and nature that his tribe once worshiped.
