And the Children Shall Lead

'In each of the Three Lands there is one Race of Creature which is the Builder and Ruler of that Land, and the Three Races are in as much harmony as their respective Parents are: that is, None at All. Fire's Children are Stocky and Swarthy creatures that Thrive in Heat. Earth's Children are the Elven-folk: Slim and Pale creatures of Forest and Desert. And the Children of Earth and Fire when they were Together are our own People: the Men, Sturdy and Dark.' # This is on graph paper because originally I was doing detailed proportionality studies of the Three Races. As is typical, the quick sketches of children I did at the bottom of the page turned out better than the careful drawings. Pencil and colored pencil, graph paper, 4*2'', early 2002
