~Every five years, at the time of the first snow storm of the winter, a lone Wolf will travel down from the Restless forests and into the Peaceful meadows. The Wolf wrecks havoc, destroys every nest it finds and slaugthers those animals that haven't found a good enough place to hide, then leaves as suddenly as it came, and won't be seen for the next half of a decade.
And every time the animals of the meadows will choose the bravest warrior to challenge the beast, believeing and hoping that one year the messanger Bullfinch will fly to the Hiding Place bringing word of a great victory. Then the Peaceful meadows would finally truly be peaceful. ~
This one is probably the personal artwork I've spent the most time on in AGES, and my hand doesn't even hurt this time! : D I finally decided to mix around with the sensitivity-settings of my tablet, and behold; not having to constanly press the pen down as if trying to kill it miraculously relives the stress on my wrist. Who would have thought... ^^'
