Between Worlds by Stalcry Between Worlds by Stalcry

I feel very meh about this one.
The trees bother me. A lot.

I just wanted to get it up to showcase that Tenrai now has blue eyes. No longer soul-less pits of black.

She does have a personality, she is a feeling creature. And I can't stress SHE enough. She is a SHE. Almost motherlike, she cares for the forest like it is her one child. She is comfort and order, guardian of those that have passed.
She may seem hard or impersonal at times, but at her core, in her soul, she has endless love for her forest.

Is that the gate to the Afterlife? And if so, is she coming out, or going in?

Its sort of like an alternate dimension "Spirit world"
This was just a concept, I'm still developing exactly how it works. There are two parts to Hisakousen Forest. The World of the Living is ruled by Arik, the Spirit World is ruled over by Tenrai, but it's not the "afterlife". It is more like a magical plain where non-mortal creatures reside. The Afterlife, called the After in this story, is only reached by the Spirits of the dead. They make their way to the center of the forest and ascend there. It is a mystery to many what actually lies there. Tenrai's main purpose is to protect the balance of life and death, assure that the spirits are safely arriving to the after, and to prevent more malevolent creatures that live in the spirit world, mostly based on Youkai, from causing harm to the living.

I must have confused the gate with something else, then. Sorry. There's only so much one can keep track of.

Is Tenrai's "world" the same as Arik's in the way it looks? I mean, are the rivers in the same place in both plains or are they differet? I always, for some reason think of worlds in similar consepts to reflections of eachother, you see, and I can't really shake it, try as I might.

The gates are a gateway between her world and his. I havent decided whether they will be identical and just on alternate dimensions, or split up into sections, some sections belonging to the spirit realm, others belonging to the living world.

The medium I am considering (a while from now actually) would be a game. The gates serving as kind of level gates. You go through one at the end of the level. Im far off from that and still working on it haha. Right now I'm focused more on WINGS. Hisakousen is on a back burner for now. But that doesnt mean I wont come back to it. Tiz my baby. Its just got a large amount of holes that need to be patched up haha.

I love the shading on her head/skull. Trees are so hard from that angle. Good for you for giving it a try! I think it came out quite well :)

I didn't think I would like them either, but I played around with the design a little and now Im happy with it XD Theyre not really glowing orbs, theyre actually shaped like eyes, theyre just solid blue, and they can blink, squint, look worried, etc
Thank you :3
