Cinder by myques
"I heard voices. Peering around the corner of Shandi’s wagon I saw several unfamiliar men and women sitting around a fire. My parents’ fire. A dizziness swept over me and I reached out a hand to steady myself against the wagon’s wheel. When I gripped it, the iron bands that reinforced the wheel crumbled in my hand, flaking away in gritty sheets of brown rust. When I pulled my hand away the wheel creaked and began to crack. I stepped back as it gave way, the wagon splintering as if its wood were rotten as an old stump.
    I now stood in full view of the fire. One of the men tumbled backward and came to his feet with his sword out. His motion reminded me of quicksilver rolling from a jar onto a tabletop: effortless and supple. His expression was intent, but his body was relaxed, as if he had just stood and stretched.
    His sword was pale and elegant. When it moved, it cut the air with a brittle sound. It reminded me of the quiet that settles on the coldest days in winter when it hurts to breathe and everything is still.
    He was two dozen feet from me, but I could see him perfectly in the fading light of sunset. I remember him as clearly as I remember my own mother, sometimes better. His face was narrow and sharp, with the perfect beauty of porcelain. His hair was shoulder length, framing his face in loose curls the color of frost. He was a creature of winter’s pale. Everything about him was cold and sharp and white.
    Except his eyes. They were black like a goat’s but with no iris. His eyes were like his sword, and neither one reflected the light of the fire or the setting sun.”
- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

I'm so positively shocked about the feedback on this piece I got from all of you! Thanks everybody, you made my work worthwhile! :) :) :)
In the update I lenghtened the pic (more grass on the bottom). I also blurred the hand,  improved trees in the background and made Kvothe look more child-like. Hope you enjoy.

I abandoned this one quite a while ago. Thought it would be nice to finish it finally.

A dzięki, dzięki :bucktooth: ja jestem oczywiście pod wrażeniem lamparta, chociaż bardzo podobają mi się też twoje akwarelki. Planujesz jakoś poważniej iść w tym kierunku, szkoła, praca czy coś?

będę rysować karty do MtG :P a tak serio to prawdopodobnie potraktuję rysowanie/malowanie jako pracę dorywczą, tzn zacznę coś sprzedawać, chyba że dostanę lepszą ofertę. ale nie planuję iść na ASP, jeżeli o tym mówisz
