This was my half of an art trade with the lovely Miss Arwen, of whom I am honored to know as a friend and artist. For six weeks this picture was the bane of my existance... torturous, never wanting to get done... it drove me mad. But atlast the thing is done! There are several things in it that were inspired by different people and objects... The characters ofcourse belong to Miss Arwen, but see the tombstones? The celtic-ish pheonix design is based on of my characters, Dea.... And that slanted dragon stone to the left is drawn from a bloodstone pendant I wear for luck. The design for one of the flowers, that curly pointsettia looking one right about the largest- has design inspiration credited to the great Miss Adele. I feel so lucky to have them as my friends. Thankyou for being so patiant Miss Arwen. ^_^. Also, there's a bigger version of it on my other gallery that's linked to my main page... for those who are curious.
