I never thought of dryads as potentially predatory. Interesting.

That is amazing. I just love the dark atmosphere.
This one reminds me of my favourite Manga series, Berserk. Kentaro Miura is truly an amazing artist and you have a great style!

This is epic.
The detail, the way one thing fits into another, the tone, the constrast.
And the owl!! :D I didn't notice the owl and was like "AGHH OMG!!!" when I did! :XD:

Reminds me of Eysichthon's story in the Metamorphosis, only with the dryad kicking ass and taking names instead of just dying like a wuss. ^_^ Very pretty.
