Ina is the original wielder of Ice Brink. In her tribe, when a girl becomes a woman, she is sent off to visit the elusive forest spirit. Many girls never see the spirit, others have glimpses or visions of it. Ina actually spoke and held the spirit's hand. She was given a root from the ancient spirit tree. And in Ina's possesion, the root grew into the sword that is today.
I colored this with pencils, then used watorcolor pencils for the background. I went over with acrylic for highlights and darker areas. And then used Painter Classic for lighting and more highlights.
Yes, I know it sounds like a mess. XP
