I never got round to doing my final drawing and threw out all my sketches :sad:

So I just wrote a little something representing the feeling I was trying to go with:

Beat. The skin of the earth is warmer to the touch and from it winding serpents stretch from winter slumbers to sun themselves on thawing rocks. The ice, which once held all in one cold January dusk, drips and streams to brooks where little brown trouts dance to catch the mayfly soar. From a roe deer skull grows a cluster of snow drops. Slowly the green mantle takes it's hold on the stark wood; anemones rise through dead leaves and moist moss recovers as it devours the dead trees. Birds return from hot lands to fill grey skies with feathers and bright chatter. A sapling tree pushes through the soil.

Death took the life giver; its cold touch was felt by all. Now all things rise and dance and beat as the sun does upon the waking land.
And so the dawn has started.
