This is really just a sketch/colour exercise that got out of hand so it’s not great but I took it this far so might as well post it.

(Also lettering, not my strong suit, at all.)

Now for the lore bit!

In the Songs of Heimurinn a Changeling (or Drodd) is a person/creature that has been transformed into an elf, there are myriad ways in which the fae try to ensnare other life forms, some come willingly, other are tricked or forced, sometimes the process is slow and subtle… sometimes a weary traveler rest’s beneath the wrong tree and is quickly pulled under its roots to be rapidly ‘cured’ of their mortality, their former lives forgotten they begin a new existence as a child of the forest.

Very lovely piece, quite telling, though it's nice you spelled it out in the author's description. Everything's nicely laid out, proportioned, etc, sure glad this practice thing got out of hand ;)
