First Songs by Saimain First Songs by Saimain
“There is a meadow at the heart of the Forest, and tall, ancient trees that remember the very first songs of the world. It was to one of these trees that he entrusted his life, and he slumbers there still.”

Faeren in the Forest of Illusions–the finished version of the thumbnail sketch from my last batch of doodles. ^__^; Tried out a different size lead for my mechanical pencil, and I think I like it! Too many hours put into this, but you know how I love organic details.

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

I like the image, but the pose and the vine covering reminds me too much of "Aliens."

And now I have to imagine an elven Ripley...
