Awakening by Saimain Awakening by Saimain
Somewhat of a sequel to the painting "Forsaken". Faeren's appearance has altered a bit with his gradual acceptance of his unusual fate as part of the forest, and I had fun incorporating aspects of nature into his design. Took about two weeks to finish, off and on. I tried to give the fabric a different texture than its surroundings. It felt nice to do a pencil piece again. ^_^ You can find a Step-By-Step version of this here: [link]

You can learn more about Faeren and "The Wars of Avenan" storyline here: [link]

All the details you put into this really pull the piece together. Your placement of the butterflies really helps move the eye across the piece, keep up the beautiful work.

I love how your pencil pieces leave the picture plane. You have a very artful way of incorporating borders into the actual piece itself, which you don't see very often. So beautiful. :heart:
