The Summoning Tree by sighthoundlady The Summoning Tree by sighthoundlady

This is technically “plot art,”  been working on this and a large amount of other pieces for it the last few months, but I don’t foresee the plot being finished anytime soon, if at all at this point so, so I thought I’d go ahead and show this one here now at least.


This is an illustration depicting Herla as a very young fawn being brought by her mother, Elandria to Woden so he can take her to a land of Fairy where she will be safe from The Wild Hunt.  It was interesting visiting Herla’s “old” design again, as her new design is not “retroactive” into the past.  It changed as she aged. 


Thanks very much to KateHallen for excellent help with the lighting on this, really helped pull it together.


And hate to have to keep saying this, but if you like my art and are inspired by it, I’m honored but please don’t take my stuff and please give credit where credit is due.  Please and thank you.

Wow, this is such a beautiful piece! The lighting really did bring it together nicely, it has such a mystical feel to it. Plus I love the spiritual history you're weaving into this story, it makes it all the more unique. I know I don't comment often, but I've always loved seeing your work, it really does inspire me to keep drawing :heart:

Herla has her mothers looks!
Poor thing. She's done well so far despite her troubled beginnings... Her mother was right though...
