I created this painting for a friend of mine who plays on the Realms of Despair. Her main character, Graelynia, is a complicated Elfin paladin often plagued by doubts. I rarely work in paint (especially not in watercolour) simply because I don't have the time (or space), except at my cottage where I can work for hours uninterrupted. Where my confidence with the watercolour was lacking, I used aqua pencils. This piece was featured in 'The MUD Companion', winter 2001 issue.
