Dryad's Autumn Embrace

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Kathleen Hardy

This was inspired by Keith Parkinson's 'Chernovog', which has a figure lying at the base of a large tree in the middle of a forest in autumn, with leaves in mid-fall to the ground. I really liked the look of those leaves caught in the air, and I wanted to do something with leaves falling. I developed this idea because I like the thought of trees having 'spirit', like the dryads, and how some trees have really gnarled roots and branches. I thought it was terribly romantic that these two dryads decided to hibernate together for the long winter, and therefore their tree has a very complex gnarled root system. colored pencil
