This is an illustration to a novel I'm working on, Evestears. Prepare for some reading! Elfwooders, meet Silmeria, the terror of the cloudy Gandvik skies. She once served in the army of a country far away, but after an affair with a fighter aircraft that served the enemy's side, she was commanded to leave both the army and her home country. After travelling across half a continent, she settled down in the attic of a deserted barn just outside a quiet village not very far from Gandvik, and there she also laid her two eggs. However, the presence of this death machine who could slice a human in half by merely waving one of her rotor blades was not approved of by the people in the village, and they made many attempts at convincing her to leave. When they realised that the reason she never left was that she had eggs to care for, they thought it wise to crush the eggs... which was, as it turned out, not very wise. Silmeria finally left the village, but only after having mowed down every building and any living being that happened to be in her way. Devastated by the sorrow of losing her children, she still managed to find her way to Gandvik, where she has been living since. She hides at day and scouts the city at night, searching for food or fuel. She has no faith left in humanity, a species that apparently, to her, do little else than hate, murder and wage war. To create the background (and some subtle textures in the foreground) I used PSD brushes made by some skilled artists over at deviantART, namely: ~KeyMoon, ~Sunira, *redheadstock, ~Horhew, ~ewark, and ~SiR-FrAggZaLoTt
