The Nefarine Tree

"That must be the Nefarine, Falen thought, recalling his guide's words.

A platform supported by thick wooden brackets hammered into the bark spiraled upward around the trunk of the colossal tree and formed a walkway into the height of the branches. From there, following a handrail driven alongside the wooden pathway, it was possible to walk the tree like a bridge to cross the chasm.

The chasm itself was almost as wondrous as the tree. Rivers flowed from three sides, cascading into feathery waterfalls as they plummeted down the walls of the rift to form the sparkling lake Falen had seen below. The mountains of the Nefar range soared on the other side, stretching into the distance as far as could be seen."

A huge thank you to my wonderful patrons this month! Without your support I would never have been able to take the time off work to play around with my own projects.  Reworking some landscapes from my old Wars of Avenan storylines has been on my list of projects for years now! The last time I drew this tree was back in 2001.  It's been a while! ^__^;;

Hi Saimain! I was wondering if I could use this wodnerful artwork of yours as a banner, for a page I'm making on this website, I would give you proper credit of course, and no alterations would be made to it. If not, that is totally fine and understandable. Have a blessed day.

I would rather this artwork not be used for a banner, as it pertains to a specific place in my stories. But thank you so much for asking first, I really appreciate that! :)

While I adored the original drawing, there's no doubting the greater fidelity of the new piece (and colors!). Really reminds me of some of the more interesting shaped redwood trees.

Is it supposed to trick the eye or something? Because I clearly see the figure of a lady in there :) It's just the head, with her hair untied, there's no face, just the silhouette.
