Snufkin [link] he was my fav character in the Moomins series, I love a lot how wise and mysterious he is...

:iconsnufkinplz::iconsaysplz:yeah, I know right?
... perhaps because he was the most human-like male character there???? :iconkruemelplz:

It seems this character received several names in different countries as far I've read in your comments, those are some of them that I've collected: Snukfin, Manrico, Nuuskamuikkunen, Snusmumrikken, Włóczykij, Snúður, Snusmumrick, Mumrikken, Le Renaclairican (or Pipeau), Booboo, هادي (Hadi), ...

this.. this is just too gorgeous. I had such a crush on Snusmumrikken as we call him in Norway when I was a kid, and I guess I still do!
Thank you for this <3

Brilliant! You couldn't possibly have captured him more perfectly. 

I faved it a long time ago, but it's so lovely to see it again just now. I love snufkin/snusmumrikkken too. Maybe even more as adult.
And he reminds me of someone dear to me :)

Nuuskamuikkunen! :dummy:
I don't remember liking him when I was a little but now I find him kinda interesting. :3

I'm kinda disturbed of his Finnish name, thought. :l I don't get it what Tove Jansson was thinking. Even thought the name sounds cute, I still wanna know why that name.

I like this pic! :la: awesome! C:

One of my all time childhood heroes. This guy is the best guy ever!

Incidentally, I know him as Booboo (or Boeboe in the original Afrikaans) as his name was translated into the Afrikaans dub I watched as a kid. Pretty cool you got that.

I adore this pic and I lurve Snufkin:'3

In swedish we call him "Snusmumriken" but when I was little I couldn't pronounce it so instead I said somethin' like "Snyfsnuffsnum" e,e'

In Hungarian also he has several names, it depends on the translators. But the best was : "Vándor". He was also " Kószlász-bóklász", and "Szuszek"<--(bleh).
I love the picture, especially that lens flare on the feet :D But the whole picture is so awesome :aww:
