Forest Guardian character development

This is a project I've been working on for a while, featuring characters from a little story I have in mind. It is about a forest guardian called Halarif, and a village girl named Edhel who has befriended him. I intend to do some illustrations of key moments from their story.

Designing these characters has been a fun challenge, and I look forward to explore their story further.
