Beneath the World Tree

Erika is seated beneath the world tree, face heavily shaded. Its boughs
spread above her, globes of luminous fruit growing on its limbs.

Erika waits beneath the World Tree.

If I ever make a comic of my book, this is the panel right before the final chapter.

I've had this one in my head for a long time. The perspective is actually even sharper, but it's pretty hard to do the dramatic lighting and the dramatic perspective and still have it be interpretable.

Also I went through so many different embellishments for the fruit to try to get it to look right, but I ended up deleting them all and going with the simplest version in the end.
