The Reader's Path by jerry8448 The Reader's Path by jerry8448
~o~ The Reader's Path ~o~

I wanted to paint this a few days ago. I already had the sketch, but for some reason ended up doing the Red Riding Hood picture instead. This here was more carefully planned and took me a lot longer. It's definitely one of my more detailed pictures. I even worked in the titles of some of the books I used to love when I was younger.

I have another version with a small glowing fairy hovering over the path, but I was told not to use it. Sometimes I wish I was half as good at drawing characters as I am with scenery :paranoid:

Anyway, enjoy! :)
