The Harp's Study by Shadow-Wolf The Harp's Study by Shadow-Wolf
The Harp relaxes in her private study with a favorite book and a pot of tea, accompanied by her companion dove, Hadi. The Harp is mostly blind, but she can get around well enough on her own in familiar places. She can read with the aid of a magnifying glass, which is one of favorite activities to give her voice a rest and be away from others for a while. Hadi is one of her constant companions, he is her guide when she needs it. Hadi flies ahead holding highly visible red ribbons in his feet, so that The Harp can see and knows where to go. If they needed to get home from very far away without help, Hadi’s navigation skills as a dove would be valuable.

This is the picture that convinced me to watch you! (This and the one before it, with the Harp and her Shadow.) I also followed you on Tumblr. I love to follow artists because you guys inspire me so much! ^^

Neat concept and characters; I love the design for The Harp, it's a very interesting cross of species.
(Besides, how cute is a guide bird?Heart )

I have to admit, The Harp is my favorite of your characters :heart: Love the story and culture you've created :)

i must ask, will you let me use this as a story book reference in my book?
Shadow-Wolf May 15, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
No, you may not. This is my personal story I I do not want anyone using it.

Unfortunately age doesn't really have anything to do with it. Even if you were my age or 20 years my senior, I would still not want you using my own images, stories, and characters! It's MOST fun to make up your own, and not have to rely on what other people create. =)
