Always wanted to draw some windigo. In the end I also drew some Starswirl too.
Is there a story behind this scene? Mmmmaybe. You guys can make your own story.^^ I saw it happen time to time in the past for drawing like this.

The thousand voices came from all around him, audible even in the howling winds. Each of them were taunting, each of them dripped with cruelty. And yet among the Windigoes, only the one before him seemed to be addressing him.

"You have FAILED, old fool." The ethereal horror gloated, "Your people will fall... their hatred had nourished us well. And from their frozen forms, we shall feast upon their essence for ten thousand years and more!"

The unicorn's grimace deepened. For a while, there was only the snow and darkness, and the sound of the Windigoes' dark laughter amidst the winter gusts.

Then, suddenly, he gave a light chuckle.

"Lies." He said simply. "I know you, monster, and I know you well. You are nothing - Nothing but whispers in the wind. You have nothing - Nothing but malice and spite!"

His voice grew loud, defiant against the startled creatures, filled with conviction and resolve. "You are hatred - but hatred have no hold over any creature who does not give in to it! And we will give you nothing! My people will survive, and when they discover they have each other, their strength together will burn away your shadows and your lies! YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER US!"

Then, they felt it - far away in the distance, beyond the mountains, a glowing light banishing the darkness of the storm, a growing warmth pushing away the deathly cold in the air. It shone with the brilliance of a burning flame - a fire of friendship.

This, and the mocking smile from the unicorn mage - a smile of vindication - made the Windigoes scream with fury, and they were upon him as his horn glowed with magic ...

Nicely done, exactly what I would expect from Starswirl.
Great use of muted color, everything has the same patina which brings out the late night winter feel beautifully!

"Star Swirl," the voice was cold, distant, haunting. It was a voice the aged Unicorn knew well, years of traveling the frozen north, trying to find a way to save his friend... Yes, he knows this voice too well. "You will fail, Star Swirl, why not simply lay down and let the snow take you."

"Because I cannot," Star Swirl replies to the icy winds, the snow stinging against his exposed face as it whips around him. Pulling his cloak closer, lest the icy talons of the freezing not get beneath, he turns and studies the harsh landscapea round him. "But you already knew that. You've faced the tenacity of my student, been forced from the southern lands by the teamwork and friendship ponies share. You found no perchase there," he turns slowly, his eyes meeting the glowing translucent ones of the Windigo that had not been there a moment prior, "and you shall not find perchase in my soul now."

Smirking slightly, or perhaps it is simply a trick of the creature's already whispy nature, the Windigo chuckles darkly. "Yet you are alone, Star Swirl. I see no friends with you, no fire to warm you, nor cave to shelter you." It drifts closer, its breath threatining to sap the warmth, and Star Swirl's life, from his bones. "You are alone."

"I am not alone," Star Swirl remarks, turning with a smile of his own. "I have you to remind me of the price of failure."
