Deep Wood by Saimain Deep Wood by Saimain
Faeren and Morgan: a rivalry of power in nature--one fragile and beautiful and bound to the earth, the other dark and shrewd and commanding the sky. I tried to show contrast not only in their expressions, but also in the nature around them--Faeren has more swirly, mossy forest and butterflies, while Morgan has mostly stick-like branches. Morgan steals his powers from the wood, they are not given to him freely.

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

This one has an interesting dynamic to it. I'm more of a "mossy forest and butterflies" kind of guy. :)

I love the detail, there's no pointless lines or anything!!! I want to learn. How do you do it, I mean, how long does it take, how do you practice or on what are you based on?
