In the Green Shadows by puimun In the Green Shadows by puimun
"The Lady drew herself up tall, and the lanterns dimmed by comparison to the unfiltered aura of her being. She was slender, with emerald eyes, and up close, Lily could see the fine veins that traced under her translucent skin like a fan of tattooed lace. Her hair was thick and black, and coiled in a serpentine cascade of braids. Jasmine blossoms were twisted into the strands, like sweetly perfumed stars. She wore a green silken shift with a subtle pattern woven into the threads, and belted at the waist with a tangle of jasmine vines. The patterns in the silk of her gown shifted and writhed like living runes, and her stark face was both terrifying and beautiful."

honestly i'm not trying to plug myself or my art here....but i just wanted to say two things:

1. thank you for being such a huge source of inspiration to me! i've been a fan/follower of yours for years, i have all your artbooks and enjoy every new piece you post! i especially love reading the stories and myths that go along with them, my only wish is to become as good as you one day!

2. i would be BEYOND honored if you would take a moment to see how your books and all your advice and tutorials have paid off- here is a link to my most recent work [link]

to know that your eyes have even seen my attempts to follow in your footsteps would mean the world to me.
