Isle of the One Tree by DarthIggy Isle of the One Tree by DarthIggy
Recently I've been re-reading a series of fantasy novels I read as a teenager. The books are written by Stephen R. Donaldson and are a lot better than I remember. I think now that I'm older I understand them better.

The scene in this photo-manipulation takes place in the 5th book which is called "The One Tree". The characters are all in a cavern under the Island which is reachable only through a deep well. The main character, Thomas Covenant is trying to remove a branch from an ancient tree using white gold "Wild Magic" which he has little to no control over. The tree is a source of immense power and he plans to make a staff which will allow him to save the Land from the evil that threatens to destroy it. But in the process, his uncontrolled power might serve the evil he hopes to fight.

This is my interpretation of what the struggle might look like from outside. If you want to know about the ship anchored nearby, you'll have to read the books. :)

I've started reading these books for the first time this year and I am just about to start "White Gold Wielder," these books are amazing! Nice job this looks really great I jsut finished "The One Tree," last night and I loved that scene inside the chamber of the one tree. Excellent work!

Stone and Sea, well done! You should take a crack at Hotash Slay or the destruction of Illearth Stone! Photomanip might also be good for stone warped creatures.

A Chronicles fan! Yes indeed. I've already been kicking around an idea for Seareach with Kinslayer standing at the edge of the sea holding the Illearth stone up to the sky. That one's going to take some time.

Many thanks for using my stock, it's good to see my ship on sail in this wonderful scene.
I particularly like the lighting effects in this one, very eye-catching work.
