Its been over a decade since I set this to mind, then drawing, then periodic updates to keep it on my bench- out of sight but never forgotten. Much has happened during this time, and it can be sometimes painfully obvious for anyone reading my journals over the years. More pictures below.     I am finally able to finish this, it's been close to my heart for so long and the wind that whispers to me across still water tells me it's time.   Custom "Evenstar" inspired model for Di and Talon.
