I love this - just love it!

The fairy is great - love his wings and hat. The main tree is gorgeous. The background tree to the right I would leave out as I find it distracting, but that's just me. Smile

Amazing, beautiful piece. I'm anxious to see more of your work! Thank you for sharing.

I like your drawing, maybe even more so because I haven't seen anything related to Earthdawn in a long, long time. I didn't even read your desription adn I knew that had to be a Windling. Very good job. Brings back some great memories....

Hehe - 'Gallery' may be a little bit exaggerated at this time. I've a lot of practice-work ahead and then it will hopefully develop into a collection of more pics ;)Thank you nonetheless!

Yes, I guess my main problem was I already started out pretty dark and didn't dare to go further - Ah well, next time... ;D

This is an amazing peice of art.
The only thing that i would change, is more darker shades that would make certain things, like the fairy pop out at you!
oh well, Its wonderful, and keep up the great work!

Very impressive! The texture on the branches is perfect. You got some very nice shading skills for your age!

Hmmm, that's true - he's kind of melting into the bg. Thanks for the hint and for commenting.
