New vote incentive again...
Is it bad of me to keep putting up my art here as vote incentives for my comic? I mean, it's new and I want to show it off, but my new stuff is always used as vote incentives... If that's cheesy and lame, tell me.
Anyway, this picture shows Torin with a small congregation of Dryads. These are nature spirits who usually inhabit trees and the like, and Dryads will usually look somewhat like the tree they inhabit. (This isn't supposed to be any kind of tree in particular, in this picture.) If you try to damage or cut down a tree that a Dryad is living in, be ready for a heck of a fight! They are
protector spirits and will do battle with you if you threaten them or make them mad.
...If you ask kindly before you cut the tree down, and maybe even tell them what you're using the wood for, they'll usually be happy to move into a different tree. In this case, it's easier to ask permission than forgiveness! They're very fond of Satyrs and will often join in festivals with them. The watery equivalent of Dryads are Naiads, who often inhabit and protect bodies of water like lakes and such. Dryads and Naiads protect living nature, while Liches protect the dead. Liches are ghostly beings that look over battlefields and sometimes even bury the dead if the bodies are left unattended. Liches appear more like centaurs.
I don't know if "Dryad", "Naiad", or "Lich" are words I'll stick with. I may look up different mythologies' equivalents, if there are any. Looking for something a little more Irish/Celtic with the satyr ones and perhaps more Native American with the Liches.
