Jizo Watches You

In Japan Jizō is often referred to as a guide for travellers and children and a protector of their souls, so his statues are common around roads, graveyards and gardens. Being someone who's all over drawing mystical forests and faraway places I find this concept very fascinating. 
When you stray too far off you stumble upon an unremarkable stone statue and suddenly know you are not all alone. Someone's watching over you, you are safe.

do you think you can draw an elven city next?

If you want some inspiration I would suggest you to search on elven cities from the first age of Lord of The Rings. Gondolin, Alqualonde, Nargothrond, Doriath, Tirion,...

Also the warcraft elven cities like Silvermoon, Suramar and Zin Azshari

or Lux Aurea from The Dragon Prince

and there is also this elven city atop a volcano

also little sidenote if you want a good webcomic to read before sleeping or whatever I suggest you Drowtales
