Light and Shadow by Saimain Light and Shadow by Saimain
The companion paintings “Beautiful Light” and “Sentinel” shown together, as well as a close-up of the faces, and how Nimri and Emerrin (Morgan) interact when the images are overlaid. :)

A play in contrasts and symbolism, Nimri being the light to Morgan’s shadow. His painting was solid black on white, she is solid white on black; he has ravens, she has doves; where he is harsh and looking down on a war-torn world, she is gentle and looking up in hope; he is surrounded by wilderness, she stands on her palace balcony.
You can learn more about Nimri, Morgan and "The Wars of Avenan" storyline here: [link]

Morgan is ©Adele Lorienne (me); Nimri is ©Kelly Kilbourn ~ElvenSoul06

It's a name Nimri gave to him when she began to see change in him.  :)  He actually has three names: Morgan--his birth name, Wilderlord--his Illusionist name/title, and Emerrin--Nimri's name for him, and what he may choose to call himself in the future.

Ah I see! :) I like that, Nimri giving him a name. Thank you for taking the time to answer! x

I adore your work on these two. My inner interior designer has ideas for decorating a room around these two...but there is no time.

Man but these two images together are just gorgeous, Adele! They're detailed and undetailed in all the right places and I love the connection between these two, even if there's a distance between them. Some of your best work to date!

I'm so behind! When did Morgan change his name? (Or is that his original name?) I feel ashamed to admit my ignorance, but I have to ask.

This is gorgeous! I love the way the pieces fit so well together, even though the initial impression is that they are too different to work as a single whole -- kinda like Morgan & Nimri.

Yes, exactly!  :D

I love the style, looks wonderful. Also, this is probably just me, but the woman - Nimri - reminds me of Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones (the tv show). =)

Makes me wonder who is light and who is darkness. The one that is light but is surrounded by darkness or the one that is dark but is surrounded by light.
