Guardian of Cimmeria by RainfeatherPearl Guardian of Cimmeria by RainfeatherPearl
She stood at her vigil, gazing out at the frozen terrain. The snow and sleet bruising past her features, as she waited. Her sapphire eyes as cold as the world she now stood in, remembering the fires that raged at home.

~Jonny Schweer
Thanks for the caption, Jonny - you're the best!!!



Well, I worked hard all day and just couldn't seem to make myself stop even to eat...I was consumed, lol. I hope you guys like it! Will be posting another version of this piece with a different atmos. I liked it so much I couldn't scrap it so hope you guys like the other version as well ;)


*Added my watermark...sorry guys - felt a bit nekkid there without it.

"It was gloomy land that seemed to hold
All winds and clouds and dreams that shun the sun,
With bare boughs rattling in the lonesome winds,
And the dark woodlands brooding over all,
Not even lightened by the rare dim sun
Which made squat shadows out of men; they called it
Cimmeria, land of Darkness and deep Night.
It was so long ago and far away
I have forgotten the very name men called me.
The axe and flint-tipped spear are like a dream,
And hunts and wars are like shadows. I recall
Only the stillness of that sombre land;
The clouds that piled forever on the hills,
The dimness of the everlasting woods.
Cimmeria, land of Darkness and the Night." Cimmeria by Robert E. Howard

Really? Cause you're guardian is the spitting image of Caollan, Conan's fair yet feisty first love. At least how I imagined her.
