I will guard your forest by Daandric I will guard your forest by Daandric
I can only watch over Her glade
for no one will desecrate such perfection.
 
I live to screen Her, to protect Her
but who am I to defile Her fruit?

I dare not look in, I dare not step inside
until She herself invokes my presence.

A new work, even though it's half the size of "Downhill" ( daandric.deviantart.com/art/Do… ) It's took same amount of time due to trouble with plants and bushes.

I will guard your forest by Daandric It is amazing how, with the most basic medium and no color the artist managed to create a vibrant piece with a unique, magical atmosphere. ( Suggested by Doberlady and Featured by ArtByCher )

Wait I have a reply highlighted somewhere on my profile... comments.deviantart.com/4/1135… here ya go.

It's a really slow process. It took about 5o work/effective drawing hours.

nononono thank YOU for praise. Do you like the poem and do you think it fits the drawing right?

I think it does. I don't know much about poems, but it feels pretty related to the drawing itself. To me, the writing evokes the same sort of feeling that the drawing inspires: the unbalanced, but very strong relationship between the writer (the guardian) and Her (the spirit, the soul of the forest, perhaps?). I like how impassive She seems to be, how very big and unreachable for him... She's close to him in a way, but it's apart of him as well...

It's like they're from different realities, different worlds or different dimensions... It's the perfect love tragedy: he loves Her deeply, and so he dedicates his life to protect her with the tools he has, but She might even not know of his existence! Or she might sense him, but don't care... Or she might sense him and care quite a lot about him as well, but She doesn't have any way to let him know how much She appreciates his dedication to Her. We won't ever know, and to me that's the beauty of both drawing and poem (and the link between them).

I think it's lovely how much you care of what viewers think about the poem, too :heart: It's very beautiful art, both words and pencil-work.

Once again, I truly appreciate the fact that you created and shared this with us.

Thanks for epic feedback :heart:

I need more people like you giving me more than "nice" and "beautiful" :D. I always torture my viewers to give me full opinion/feedback. Artist that doesn't listen and observe his viewership doesn't deserve none.

If you're willing do drop some feedback on other works...please :3 and don't hold back. If u see something wrong, point it out, don't be afraid :D

The forest came out a bit different than I originally imagined. I still have to practice smaller trees/larger bushes. I wasn't ready for those here, so the forest came out a bit too much symmetric than I originally planned.
