I will Do as Spiders Do by Maquenda I will Do as Spiders Do by Maquenda
Framed as icicles
numerous and gray
i will do as spiders do
then watch you float away

as the night is young
the frostbite lingers
drips like faucets
from my fingers
and everything you gave to me
i tossed it to the wind

climbed across my back
cut into the flesh,
burdened by my heart,
turned and hung my head

Koda

I've been wanting to draw Nimmeth as an ''Ice queen'' for years and finally got around to do it <3.

Balaa helped me a lot with the beautiful lightsource and can explain how I see Nimmeth better than I do:

''I always saw Nimmeth as a kind of mother figure, but for nature on a large scale. She has seen the cycles of life play out time and again and knows that death is part of this process. She cannot give favor to life so she wears the face of death when duty calls.''

Wearing a mask, fo mother nature, is posible.
One would not associate the bountiful spring to the merciless winter.

I love this, the frozen whiskers are something I have never seen in a piece. You somehow made them look both stiff and graceful.
