Beautiful Memory by Saimain Beautiful Memory by Saimain
"She is called the Mistress of Illusion, an ethereal embodiment of the Forest of Illusions--an ancient wood poisoned by grief and hatred at the savagery of mortal men. Once she was as tranquil and content as other forests, a haven for weary creatures to whom she would whisper ancient secrets and sing drowsy songs, but now she is a wild beauty full of menace and tricks, sometimes glimpsed as a little golden-white creature darting among the shadows, and sometimes as a beautiful white-haired woman clothed in moss."

There's something catlike in her pose; she seems more flexile than most humans, and it seems to me as if she was about to rub her face on someone. :XD:

ah, what's a blending stick^^;? sorry, i am a rather amateur...amateur still, so that's something new to me, lol

Saimain Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011  Professional General Artist
Thank you. :) A blending stick is a little pencil-shaped roll of paper with a tip that you can use to smudge graphite. You can find them in most art supply stores, though they may have another name.
