well this is an piece from my story.the man is named celdrim, he's an old homeless druid/rogue. he lives from robbing people just to survive, but he's an verry old wise man who is they only one left who knows the true ancient ways of the druids, and he's realy sad about these lost times. he feels an unbearable pain because of his homesickness, and he will never loose this.he hasnt heard the trees responding for ages. and his role in my story is to awaken the trees (dryads) again from theyre deep sleep. because the land is fading and it is yearning for healing.in this picture you see how sad he is playing an mournesong for the ancient times of the druids and all the life there once was. and he's so lost in his thoughts that he doesnt notice the tree he is sitting against is responding again because of this ancient song, about the time where both the folks of the druids and dryads and other nature spirits flourished. actually this is an picture of somekind of an resurection. where old forgotten secrets get to the surface again. The dryads name is Aelahm. and she will join the journey to. her job is trying to restore the balance of the peoples mind and trying to heal the land. but she cannnot heal the land entirely because the tree yggdrasil must be restored. only that will heal mother earth completelyand yes the instrument he's holding realy exists. its called an hurdygurdy and it sounds a bit like bagpipes. i think theyre realy cool :p
